Published: Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

MOUNT CARROLL – The Farm Service Agency has resumed the processing and disbursement of 2013 crop commodity loans.

Crop year 2013 commodity loan-making was suspended Oct. 1 because of automatic funding reductions, mandated by the Budget Control Act of 2011.

The sequestration also will reduce loan amounts by 5.1 percent when disbursed.

Visit www.fsa.usda.gov or contact local FSA offices and dial ext. 2 for more information.
