MEDFORD, Ore. -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture is extending certain deadlines for programs due to the partial government shutdown.

The two main programs affecting the Rogue Valley are the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) and the Market Facilitation Program (MFP). The LFP deadline was originally the end of January. Now, it's February 28.

The MFP deadline was originally January 15. It is now February 14.

President Donald Trump said Friday afternoon he'd be willing to sign a bill reopening the government until February 15. 

The USDA county executive director, Phillip Morton, said it's unclear how this short reopening would affect them. The shutdown forced the department to limit its services.

It can help with the following programs:

-Market Facilitation Program

-Marketing Assistance Loans

-Release of collateral warehouse receipts

-Direct and guaranteed farm operating loans and emergency loans

-Service existing Conservation Reserve Program contracts

-Sugar price support loans

-Dairy Margin Protection Program

-Agricultural risk coverage and price loss coverage

-Livestock Forage Disaster

-Emergency Assistance Livestock, Honey Bees, and Farm-raised fish Program

-Livestock Identity Program

-Non-insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program

-Tree Assistance Program

Things the office can't help with until it's fully reopened:

-New Conservation Reserve Program contracts

-New Direct and Guaranteed Farm Ownership Loans

-Farm Storage Facility Loan Program

-Emergency Conservation Program

-Emergency Forest Rehabilitation Program

-Biomass Crop Assistance Program

-Grassroots Source Water Protection Program
