Ventura County

Farmers Eligible for Drought Aid

November 24, 2002|From a Times Staff Writer

Ventura County has joined a long list of California counties that were declared agricultural disaster areas because of damage sustained during the current drought.

Farmers and ranchers throughout the United States have been hard hit, and many have been calling for federal aid.

U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Ann M. Veneman designated counties in 10 states as disaster areas. The designation makes farmers in those and neighboring counties eligible for low-interest emergency loans and, in some cases, compensation for livestock losses.
