Part Time Farmer Gets Help

Part-Time Farmers Get Help

Many part-time farmers in Tuscola county are using operating loan credit from the Farmers Home Administration to supplement the agricultural part of their earning, according to Robert Abbott, county supervisor of the agency.

About 40 per cent of the Initial operating loans in Tuscola county during fiscal 1964 went to part-time farmers, according to Abbott.

Improvements in Farmers Home Administration loan programs now permit the farm credit agency to advance financial assistance to families on small farms, as well as, for full-time farming operations.

This includes farms operated on a part-time basis.

Operating loans from FHA can be used by part-time farmers to buy feed, seed and fertilizer, machinery and equipment as well as livestock.

Many farmers who operate small farms, Abbott said, but obtain most of their income through another job may be overlooking an opportunity to increase their farm income.

Small amounts of credit from a conventional lender, Abbott continued, often can help the farmers replace old and inefficient machinery or purchase new equipment more suitable for his part-time farming operation.

"If well planned," Abbott said, "with definite farm income objectives in mine, this can be one of the best investments he can make."

"But when a conventional lender is unable to extend credit, in many cases FHA may be able to provide the financing for eligible part-time farmers."

Interest rate on operating loans is 5-per-cent, with repayment period of from 1 to 7 years.

Farmers Home Administration also makes loans to purchase and develop farms, to develop community water systems, to build housing for senior citizens and farm laborers, and to meet emergency credit needs of farmers suffering from a natural disaster such as hail, floor or drought.

Walter O. Brigg III, State Young Republican Chairman, was the speaker at the Young Republican meeting held last week at the Republican Headquarters in Caro. Although he is the nephew of Democratic Senator Philip A. Hart, he is one of the state leaders in the campaign of Elly Peterson for the seat, and he gave a progress report on this campaign.

Plans were made for the Candidates Rally to be held at Caro High School on Tuesday, October 27, 1964 at 7:30 with Gov. Romney heading the list of candidates to be on hand.

All Young Republicans are to meet at Republican Headquarters next Thursday, Oct. 22, 1964 to make final plans for this rally.

Plans are being made for a Victory Celebration to be held November 19, 1964 and to have Congressman Harvey at our December meeting.

In the Kingston area, contact Mrs. Orville Hubbard or in Vassar, contact Blair Maiers at Maiers and Sons Motor Freight. Anyone between the ages of 23 and 35 is eligible for membership.
