LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Federal assistance is available to northeast Nebraska producers who lost livestock in the June tornadoes.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is offering $100,000 to producers to help them properly dispose of animal carcasses. Producers have until July 18 to apply.

The USDA can also provide technical assistance in safely disposing the carcasses.

The assistance is available through the USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service. Producers in Stanton, Wayne, Dixon, Thurston, Cuming and Cedar counties may be eligible. Other counties may be added if other storms hit before the July 18 deadline.
