There are some loans offered to small farmers around here... especially for youth... and they are called FSA loans. I was gonna look into one because it would work pretty well for me, apperently you take out the loan and you dont have to pay on it until your animals/crops sell. I was going to take one out for some NECCESSITY (maybe not to some but to me i really think to get as big into showing as i want to i need these) show supplies and a foundation heifer. With this money I want to buy a blower and try and find a cheap blocking chute, and buy a foundation heifer at this hereford show in march. I have been offerd to ride with a breeder to utah to compete for a new foundation show where last year prizes added up to $10,000. I want to then breed her to my remitall bull and hopefully get some GREAT show stock. I was just wondering if anyone has used one of these loans and if you know of any other loans like this.
