Loans available to buy farm, ranch The Farmers Home Adminsi- tration, is ready to implement two programs to help beginning farmers with operating loans and loans to purchase a farm or ranch. FMHA has formed a 14- member beginning farmer state comn|ittee. The new "down payment" loan program will help some be- ginning farmers to purchase a farm or ranch. The farm pur- chase price or appraised value cannot be more than $250,000.00 A direct loan will furnish 30 percent of the pur- chase price or the appraised value of the farm at 4 percent in- terest rate. A commercial FmHA guaranteed loan, NIFA loan, or a land contract with the seller of the farm will finance 60 percent. The applicant must make a mini- mum down payment of 10 per- cent of the purchase price or ap- praised value of the farm. The special operating loan program will start a beginning farmer or rancher or expand a beginning operation by financ- ing livestock, machinery, and operating capital. The interest rate for a direct loan is 5 percent of 5 3/4 percent. A guaranteed loan will be the lender's rate minus 4 percent, when the farm- er is eligible for the interest as- sistance program. resident at Dr. Timothy Corbett Sr., is the current resident serving at the Su- perior Family Medical Clinic.
