Two Left Paws slates fundraiser

Two Left Paws Animal Sanctuary, an all volunteer, non-profit, no-kill animal rescue organization will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a Spay-ghetti and No Balls Dinner Saturday, Oct. 18, at The Other Place Pub & Eatery in Sheboygan Falls.

The fundraiser event, which will benefit the Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program and celebrate the lives of over 4,400 animals that have been changed for the better thanks to the dedication and compassion of those who have been involved with Two Left Paws in the last 10 years, will run from 4-9 p.m.

The event features a complete Spay-ghetti and No Balls Dinner, including salad and warm artisan breads for a suggested donation of $10 per plate.

There will also be drinks specials, bake sale items featuring neutered brownies (no nuts), raffles and a silent auction.

The public is invited and additional information on the celebration, the organization and its mission can be found on the website www.twoleftpaws.org

Two left Paws was founded in September 2004 with a mission of fostering alternative environments and humane standards of care to help every homeless companion animal.

The Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program was implemented in 2008 with the goal of solving the community’s free roaming cat overpopulation crisis.

Since its inception, Two Left Paws has facilitated more than 1,700 animal adoptions and served more than 2,600 free roaming cats through the TNR program.

Over 650 cats have been spayed/neutered this year with another 110 scheduled for October.

As a non-profit organization, Two Left Paws relies on community support for 100 percent of its operating expenses.

As a “shelter without walls,” 100 percent of donation funding is used directly for the benefit of animals in need.

Program open for dairy producers

Sheboygan County Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director, Lynn Ann Clausing, announced that dairy producers can now enroll in the new Margin Protection Program for Dairy Producers (MPP).

The voluntary program, established by the 2014 Farm Bill, provides financial assistance to participating dairy producers when the margin – the difference between the price of milk and feed costs – falls below the coverage level selected by the producer.

MPP, which replaces the Milk Income Loss Contract program, gives participating dairy producers the flexibility to select coverage levels best suited for their operation. Enrollment ends Nov. 28 for 2014 and 2015.

Participating farmers must remain in the program through 2018 and pay a minimum $100 administrative fee each year. The $100 fee covers producers at the catastrophic level under the MPP program. Producers can purchase additional “buy-up” coverage to meet the needs of their operation. Producers will have the option of selecting different coverage levels during open enrollment periods that will be held from July through September in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The Sheboygan FSA Office will be having an informational meeting on the MPP-Dairy Program Friday, Oct. 24 beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the Sheboygan County USDA Service Center. Persons with disabilities who require accommodation to attend or participate in this event should contact Lynn Ann Clausing at (920) 467-9917, or dial 711, or contact the Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339, and lynnann.clausing@ wi.usda.gov by Oct. 17.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) also launched a new Web tool to help producers determine the level of coverage under the Margin Protection Program that will provide them with the strongest safety net under a variety of conditions. The online resource, available at www.fsa.usda.gov/mpptool, allows dairy farmers to quickly and easily combine unique operation data and other key variables to calculate their coverage needs based on price projections.

Producers can also review historical data or estimate future coverage based on data projections. The secure site can be accessed via computer, Smartphone, tablet or any other platform, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Anyone who has questions about the new MPP program should contact the Sheboygan County FSA Office at (920) 467-9917 ext. 2 or should plan on attending the informational meeting on Oct. 24.
