Keep records of disaster damage

The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry says it’s important to keep records of losses from Hurricane Isaac. Those losses can come in the form of deceased livestock, lost feed purchases and other supplies.

The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry says it’s important to keep records of losses from Hurricane Isaac. Those losses can come in the form of deceased livestock, lost feed purchases and other supplies.

“It’s imperative that you do the best you can to document your losses,” said LDAF Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M. “The hardship caused by this natural disaster could be alleviated some through assistance. Documentation should help the process move a little more smoothly.”

Recommended documentation includes:

  • Documentation of the number and kind of livestock that have died, supplemented if possible by photographs or video records of ownership and losses.
  • Dates of death supported by birth recordings or purchase receipts.
  • Costs of transporting livestock to safer grounds or to move animals to new pastures.
  • Feed purchases if supplies or grazing pastures are destroyed.
  • Do not destroy any damaged crops until it has been inspected by an insurance adjuster. If crops must be harvested, leave a 10-foot representative strip in each field to be inspected by an insurance adjuster.
  • Do not remove stumps from cut down trees until a member from the Farm Service Agency (FSA) measures the diameter.
  • Move fallen limbs from the fields but don’t dispose until a FSA agent measures the diameter.
