Muddy fields across West Virginia were the result of a year of steady rain. That is according to a release from the West Virginia Conservation Agency. As a result, the West Virginia Conservation Committee approved an Emergency Assistance for Revegetation program.
The action was taken on Tuesday, April 9, 2019. Now farmers with damaged livestock feeding areas can apply for help to revegetate their land with grasses. The program will provide $60 per acre to reseed feeding areas. There is a cap of up to 50 acres per farm.
