Missouri farmers who are just starting out have a new tool thanks to an agreement between State Treasurer Clint Zweifel (ZWY-ful) and the United States Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency. Beginning immediately, first time Missouri farmers qualifying for a low-interest Missouri Linked Deposit Program loan could also receive a 95 percent loan guarantee and a waiver of the 1.5 percent origination fee from the FSA subject to its criteria and availability of funds. In 2011, nearly $24 million in Missouri Linked Deposit Program loans were given to 115 beginning farmers, saving them an estimated $370,000 in interest. A beginning farmer qualifying for a Missouri Linked Deposit Program loan may use proceeds to purchase agriculture land, farm buildings, new and used farm equipment and livestock. The proceeds  may also be used as working capital. Eligibility requirements may be found at www.treasurer.mo.gov/LinkedDeposit. Qualifying borrowers generally save 30 percent on the cost of the loan. Since January 2009, nearly $906 million in Missouri Linked Deposit Program loans have been approved saving Missourians an estimated $16.3 million in annual interest and impacting more than 15,000 jobs and farmers. More than $341 million in loans have been approved just for farmers, saving them an estimated $5.5 million in annual interest.
