FSA Plans Drought Webinars for Lenders and Ag Professionals August 14th and 16th


The Wisconsin Farm Service Agency (FSA) is hosting two informational web-based seminars for lenders, about FSA's response to the current drought situation in the state and what is available to producers suffering drought losses and damage.

The hour-long seminars will be held on Tuesday, August 14, 2012, at 11 am, and Thursday August 16, 2012, at 11 am.

Participants can attend the seminar in one of two ways: over the internet or by phone.

With the majority of Wisconsin under drought conditions, FSA is prepared with immediate responses and recovery programs to help producers affected by the dry conditions.

Lenders and other agriculture professionals are invited to join FSA for one of the live seminars to learn more about: 

  • CRP Release for emergency haying or grazing
  • Availability of guaranteed lines of credit and guaranteed operating loans for feed and other needs
  • Loan servicing options with guaranteed loans
  • FSA direct loan servicing options
  • FSA direct operating loans
  • Long term loan guarantees
  • Emergency loans

Since the seminars are limited in size, early registration is required. Attendees must pre-register by going to http://www.fsa.usda.gov/wi and follow the "Register for Drought Webinar for Lenders" link or contact their local FSA office to sign up.

Persons with disabilities who require accommodations to attend or participate in a seminar should contact Jeff Gruetzmacher at 608-723-7697 or Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339, and jeff.gruetzmacher@wi.usda.gov by August 13, 2012.
