The USDA issued a rule implementing requirements for the Emergency Assistance for Livestock Program (ELAP), which was authorized by the 2014 Farm Bill. ELAP losses must have occurred on or after Oct. 1, 2011, to be eligible for payment.

The rule specifies how payments are calculated, what losses are eligible and when producers may apply for payments. NPPC is currently working with USDA and Congress to include losses from Porcine Endemic Diarrhea Virus under ELAP for eligible producers.
