Cattle farmers to receive help


Help is on the way for many local cattle farmers. The government is enabling a tax deferral program for Cypress County ranchers. The program allows people to sell off some of their existing herd and defer the income to next year to help reduce the taxes. The deferral will also help reduce the cost of feed, which will be expensive due to the low supply this year. The deferral comes as a result of the low precipitation totals across the area.
