Free Workshops: Poultry Farmer’s Guide to FSA Loans


Upcoming Workshops: A Poultry Farmer’s Guide to FSA Loans

Are you considering borrowing money for your poultry farm?

If you are interested in borrowing money to finance your poultry operation, often the Farm Service Agency (FSA) is the best option for you. FSA has many credit programs available to help farmers finance their farm.

However, the process of applying for FSA funding can be confusing. You may find yourself with questions, but not know who to ask. Our workshop is designed to help new and existing poultry farmers answer the questions you may have about the FSA loan process.

Topics covered include: types of FSA loan available, preparing for the loan, developing detailed costs/income estimates, the FSA loan application process, managing your loan repayment, restructuring and default, and much more.

Both new and existing poultry farmers are encouraged to attend.
