Loans still available for farmers

Emergency loans are still available for Lafayette County farmers who lost crops or revenue due to the spring storms that wreaked havoc in several counties. Since Lafayette County is contiguous to the primary natural disaster area, it was designated eligible for Federal Disaster Assistance under the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act.

Loan packages can be picked up at the Oxford Farm Service Agency office at 2610 W. Oxford Loop although the loans are processed in Calhoun County. Palmer said a loan officer can often arrange to meet a farmer in Oxford if needed. For more information or to set up appointment, call 234-8701 or 628-8732. (August 11, 2010, Page 2)
