CASPER, Wyo. (AP) -- Farmers and ranchers in two Wyoming counties are eligible for federal disaster assistance for losses stemming from wildfires in northern Colorado.
The Farm Service Agency has announced that Albany and Laramie counties qualify for the aid because they are contiguous to the primary Colorado counties affected by the fires. The Wyoming counties are eligible for low-interest emergency loans.
The Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/NpUC3I) reports that to qualify for the loans, applicants must have suffered at least a 30 percent loss of their normal production per acre or normal per-animal production.
