Beef Quality Assurance and Hawaii Beef Ambassador Workshop
Register for this virtual workshop scheduled for April 30, 2021
This relief initiative is to provide emergency financial assistance to eligible Molokai-Maui farmers and ranchers with sustained economic losses resulting from the loss of pasture forage for cattle, death of cattle, destruction of farms, reduced crop yields, and other agriculture property damages, arising directly from the excessive axis deer population since July 1, 2020. Eligible expenses may include costs expended in protective/mitigating measures, relating to seeds, replanting efforts, livestock replacement, fencing, fuel, labor, and rental equipment as necessary to restore the producers’ agricultural operations to functioning status.
As agricultural workers, ranchers are eligible to receive the COVID Vaccine now. Read the email for instructions on how to schedule and appointment by sending in the excel sheet by March 4, 2021
