Disaster loss loans available

Agricultural producers in Wisconsin who lost property in recent natural disasters are eligible for physical loss loans from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) offers these loans for losses caused by snow and high winds that occurred April 13 through 15, 2018.

FSA is offering these low-interest emergency loans to producers with a qualifying loss in the counties named below. Approval is limited to applicants who suffered severe physical losses only, including the loss of buildings and livestock. The deadline for producers in designated and contiguous counties to apply for loans for physical losses is Jan. 29, 2019.

An Administrator’s Physical Loss Notification was issued for the primary damaged area of Barron, Brown, Burnett, Door, Dunn, Fond Du Lac, Green Lake, Jackson, Kewaunee, La Crosse, Marinette, Monroe, Oconto, Outagamie, Polk, Portage, Rusk, Sawyer, Shawano, Trempealeau, Washburn, Waupaca and Wood counties in Wisconsin

Additionally, producers in 29 contiguous Wisconsin counties may be eligible for programs based on this designation. The contiguous counties include Sheboygan County.

Physical loss loans can help producers repair or replace damaged or destroyed physical property essential to the success of the agricultural operation, including livestock losses. Examples of property commonly affected include essential farm buildings, fixtures to real estate, equipment, livestock, perennial crops, fruit and nut bearing trees, and harvested or stored crops and hay.

Contact FSA for more information on loan eligibility and the application process. FSA office information is available at http:// offices.usda.gov. Additional FSA disaster assistance program information is available at http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov.
