Freestone, Limestone, Leon, And Robertson County Farm Loan Manager, Nathan Philipello, asks farmers who want to apply for emergency loans to submit their applications in as soon as possible. The deadline for applications is December 14, 2010, but Philipello says if farmers wait too long, a backlog will develop and cause delays.
Generally, farmers who have lost 30 percent of their production due to losses caused by drought, above-normal temperatures and associated wildfires on January 1, 2009 – December 31, 2009 are eligible for the emergency loans. The FSA office is located at 1303 W. FM1644, Franklin, Texas.
