USDA to Open Signup for the Conservation Reserve Program and CRP Grasslands in Early 2021

USDA today announced the 2021 signup periods for general Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and CRP Grasslands offers. General signup for CRP will be open from January 4, 2021 to February 12, 2012; signup for CRP Grasslands runs from March 15, 2021 to April 23, 2021. Both programs are competitive and provide annual rental payments for land devoted to conservation purposes.

CRP and the many focused programs that come under it, like CRP Grasslands, are some of the most critical tools to help producers better manage their operations while conserving natural resources. CRP has proven to protect the Nation’s valuable resources. Next year’s signup gives farmers and ranchers an opportunity to enroll in CRP for the first time or continue their participation for another term.

Producers may apply by contacting their FSA office.

Please contact your local FSA Office.

Regrettably the St. Clair County Pheasants Forever Board of Directors have decided to cancel the 2020 Pheasants Forever Banquet due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.  Due to executive orders and the uncertainty of what conditions will be in August, the Board decided to cancel the banquet for this year.  We are planning on hosting our 35th banquet in early March of 2021.  

Chapter members who have valid tickets to the 2020 banquet will be receiving a letter in the next week or two explaining the options that the chapter will be offering due to the cancellation.

We appreciate the 293 members and 47 spouses who were planning on attending the banquet on August 29th.  These members have had their membership with Pheasants Forever updated and should be receiving membership info very soon.

As concerns have been mounting about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the nation, state, and now in St. Clair County, the St. Clair County Pheasants Forever Chapter #74 Board of Directors have found it in the best interest of our members to postpone our 35th annual banquet scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020.  

As many of you know the Coronavirus has been classified as a "Global Pandemic" by the World Health Organization.  The recommendation from Governor Whitmer and health experts in our state have recommended that large group and public gatherings should be canceled. Our Board of Directors felt that this recommendation should be followed for the good of our members, community, and state.  

The St. Clair County Pheasants Forever Chapter #74 Board of Directors realize that this cancellation may be an inconvenience for some, but the safety of our members, volunteers, and community far outweigh any problems a postponement will cause.

The Board of Directors will be meeting in the next few days to reschedule the banquet. The board will also be reaching out to those who were planning to attend the 35th annual banquet with details concerning membership, attendance, and a possible process for  reimbursement should ticket holders be unable to attend the rescheduled banquet.

Members who were planning to turn in habitat request forms at the banquet should contact Habitat Co-Chairmen Tim Vargo (810-278-2938) or Russell Golm (586-484-9067) to request application forms.  You may also contact Adair Grain and Feed (727-1598 or 329-2658).
