Beginning, Small and Urban Producers Gain Access to Credit

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Beginning, Small and Urban Producers Gain Access to Credit Facebook Twitter SHARE The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today announced the availability of a streamlined version of USDA guaranteed loans, which are tailored for smaller scale farms and urban producers. The program, called EZ Guarantee Loans, uses a simplified application process to help beginning, small, underserved and family farmers and ranchers apply for loans of up to $100,000 from USDA-approved lenders to purchase farmland or finance agricultural operations.“Over the past seven years, we have been transforming our loan programs at USDA so that they can be attainable and useful to all kinds and sizes of producers,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “These EZ Guarantee Loans will help beginning and underserved farmers obtain the capital they need to get their operations off the ground, and they can also be helpful to those who have been farming for some time but need extra help to expand or modernize their operations. USDA’s Farm Service Agency has offices in nearly every county in the country, and we encourage all farmers, including those in urban areas, to stop in and inquire about this program.”USDA today also unveiled a new category of lenders that will join traditional lenders, such as banks and credit unions, in offering USDA EZ Guarantee Loans. Microlenders, which include Community Development Financial Institutions and Rural Rehabilitation Corporations, will be able to offer their customers up to $50,000 of EZ Guaranteed Loans, helping to reach urban areas and underserved producers. Banks, credit unions and other traditional USDA-approved leaners, can offer customers up to $100,000 to help with agricultural operation costs.According to the 2012 Census of Agriculture, 75 percent of all farm operations gross less than $50,000 per year. EZ Guarantee Loans offer low interest rates and terms up to seven years for financing operating expenses and 40 years for financing the purchase of farm real estate. USDA-approved lenders can issue these loans with the Farm Service Agency (FSA) guaranteeing the loan up to 95 percent.USDA is providing a 90-day period for the public to review and comment on program improvements. To review program details, visit, reference RIN 0560-AI34 and follow the instructions to submit comments.More than half of all FSA loans go to new farmers and more than a quarter to underserved borrowers. FSA also offers loans of up to $5,000 to young farmers and ranchers though the Youth Loan Program. Loans are made to eligible youth to finance agricultural projects, with almost 9,000 young people now participating. More information about the available types of FSA farm loans can be found at or by contacting your local FSA office. To find your nearest office location, visit’s EZ Guarantee Loans are an additional tool to support strong local and regional food systems, as well as organic agriculture. Across USDA, the Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food Initiative coordinates the Department’s policy, resources, and outreach efforts related to local and regional food systems. Over the past seven years, USDA has helped provide consumers a stronger connection to their food with more than $1 billion in investments to over 40,000 local and regional food businesses and infrastructure projects since 2009. Industry data estimates that U.S. local food sales totaled at least $12 billion in 2014, up from $5 billion in 2008.Learn more about USDA investments connecting producers with consumers and expanding rural economic opportunities online at USDA Previous articleFuture Corn Growers Transformed at FFA Career ExpoNext articleLate Planted Corn Doing Better Than Expected Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Oct 20, 2016 SHARE Facebook Twitter Beginning, Small and Urban Producers Gain Access to Creditlast_img read more

Meat Institute Responds to DOJ Investigation Calls into Cattle Market

first_img The North American Meat Institute this week defended its members against allegations of wrongdoing in the cattle market.The response follows a closed-door meeting between livestock and farm groups focusing on ways to improve cattle market transparency and a letter from Republican lawmakers to the Department of Justice.The lawmakers requested DOJ continue its investigation regarding cattle market manipulation.In reaction, Meat Institute spokesperson Sarah Little told the Hagstrom Report, “In July 2020, USDA analyzed the effects of the 2019 Holcomb facility fire and the pandemic, finding no wrong-doing and confirming the disruption in the beef markets was due to devastating and unprecedented events.”She pointed to several announcements to build new packing facilities or expand capacity that will increase cattle slaughter capacity roughly four percent.In the letter to DOJ, the group or republican lawmakers state, “while black swan events do not always prove wrongdoing, additional attention can reinforce confidence in the system.” Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – May 19, 2021 Home Indiana Agriculture News Meat Institute Responds to DOJ Investigation Calls into Cattle Market Meat Institute Responds to DOJ Investigation Calls into Cattle Market SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleU.S. Department of Agriculture Announces Key Leadership in Natural Resources and Conservation AreasNext articleConcerns With Corn and Soybeans NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

While rejecting the plea, Court added that the petitioner Trust is always free to use the amounts lying in the “Indigent Patients Fund” to treat the indigent patients suffering from Covid-19 and/or from any other sickness. In an order dated August 17, 2006, while hearing a writ petition, the High Court approved “The Scheme for treatment to indigent patients and weaker section patients for the purposes of Section 41AA of the Bombay Public Trust Act.” The said scheme was later enforced and implemented as a scheme under Section 41AA of the Bombay Public Trust Act.Salient features of the said scheme are-The public charitable hospitals falling within the definition of “State aided public trust” are under a legal obligation to reserve and earmark 10% of the total operational beds for the indigent patients and provide free medical treatment to them. Also, 10% of the total operational beds are to be earmarked and reserved for the weaker section patients at concessional rates . Every public charitable hospital shall create a separate fund to be named as “Indigent Patients Fund” (IPF) and shall credit 2% of gross billing of all patients (other than indigent and weaker section patients) without any deduction . The amount credited to this account shall be utilized only for providing medical treatment to the indigent and weaker section patients.Following non-billable services are to be provided free of cost to the indigent as well as weaker section patients: (i) Bed (ii) RMO services (iii) Nursing care (iv) Food (if provided by the hospital) (v) Linen (vi) Water (vii) Electricity (vii) Routine Diagnostics for treatment of general specialties ; and (ix) Housekeeping services.Advocate SR Nargolkar along with Advocate Arjun Kadam appeared on behalf of the petitioner and Advocate Shruti Vyas for the State.It was argued on behalf of the trust that presently during the pandemic and consequent lockdown, no planned surgeries, procedures and operations in the nature of life saving or emergency procedures/surgeries/operations can be carried out. These are the surgeries, operations and procedures, which enable the petitioner trust to cross subsidize the costs of treating the patients covered by the said Scheme. However, Nargolkar submitted that the Out Patient Department of the petitioner Trust is completely shut-down and income from this source is also not available. Though the income sources of the petitioner trust have dried up, the salaries of the staff and resident doctors running into lakhs of rupees have to be borne by the petitioner Trust. In addition, the Trust also has to bear the cost of fixed overheads such as electricity, maintenance of equipment, municipal charges towards water, sewerage and other municipal taxes and charges, Nargolkar said.The Trust made a representation before the concerned Deputy Charity Commissioner to permit the administration of the Trust to utilize the money available in the “Indigent Patients Fund” for defraying the costs incurred for treatment of patients. The request was rejected and a further representation was made before the Chief minister and the State which is pending.In an affidavit dated May 14, 2020, the Deputy Charity Commissioner, Pune, strongly opposed the urgent reliefs sought by the petitioner Trust on the grounds that no details whatsoever have been provided by the Trust about its financial status and that the Trust is bound to have its financial plan (IPF) for an emergency, like the present one.After going through the material at hand, the Court noted that the petitioner has not made any mention about the specific amount of money lying in the said ‘Indigent Patients Fund’, also no details or particulars of the estimated expenditure required to be incurred, has been provided. Court is also not provided with any particulars such as the amounts lying in the current/savings and/or the fixed deposit accounts of the petitioner Trust with various banks. In the hearing on May 15, Justice Kathawalla enquired from the petitioner’s advocate about the above details. Nargolkar stated that approximately an amount of Rs. 3 crores is lying in the said ‘Indigent Patients Fund’, apart from this he had no other instructions. Thereafter, written submissions were filed by Assistant Manager (Legal) for the petitioner. Referring to the same, Court observed-“From the above particulars, I find that seen at this stage, the petitioner Trust is attempting to avoid providing specific particulars qua its income and expenses. Instead of making general statements, the Petitioner trust could clearly have set out in its written note, the amounts required to be paid/defrayed under various heads for the months of April-May 2020, and the amounts already paid so far.”Justice Kathawalla pointed out that the petitioner Trust did not utter a word about having fixed deposits to the tune of Rs.68 Crores until it was compelled to disclose its current financial status.Court said-“The petitioner Trust has shown reluctance to utilize the amount of Rs.68 Crores on the ground that the same is earmarked by it for meeting capital expenditure. However, the Petitioner Trust is seeking urgent permission of this Court to utilise a sum specifically earmarked for the indigent and weaker section of the patients under a Scheme formulated under Section 41AA of the Bombay Public Act, 1950.”Finally, rejecting the said petition, the Court added that the relief sought will require a detailed hearing and cannot be granted at this stage as an urgent relief. Justice Kathawalla opined that even if it is assumed that an amount of Rs.3 cr is lying in the said fund, the Trust can instead use the money from its fixed deposits running into Rs.68 Crores to tide over the financial difficulties claimed by them. Court directed the State to decide the petitioner’s representation within two weeks.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Coronavirus live updates: China reports no new domestic cases for first time since outbreak started

first_imgnarvikk/iStock(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of a new respiratory virus that began in China just three months ago has tightened its grip around Europe and North America.The novel coronavirus, known officially as COVID-19, has spread to every continent except Antarctica as well as every single European country, infecting more than 222,600 people globally and killing at least 9,115 of them, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. While China still compromises the bulk of the world’s cases and fatalities, that proportion is shrinking by the day as the outbreak appears to ease up there and intensify abroad.The disease has now infected 9,415 people across all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, making the United States the country with the fifth-highest national total of confirmed cases in the world. At least 141 people have died, according to ABC News’ count.With more than 35,000 confirmed cases, Italy has the second-highest national total, behind China. Here’s how the news is unfolding Thursday. All times Eastern:7:51 a.m. CDC releases new data showing young patients are being hospitalized, tooOut of 508 patients known to be hospitalized for novel coronavirus in the United States, a decent portion of them were actually relatively young, according to data released late Wednesday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The new data shows that 20 percent of those 508 hospitalizations were patients who ranged in age from 20 to 44. Another 18 percent were between the ages of 45 and 54.COVID-19 is still significantly more dangerous for older people, with 80 percent of deaths associated with adults over the age of 65. But the new data is noteworthy considering evidence that young people may be taking warnings about social distancing less seriously. The more younger people who require hospitalization, the less resources there are for the older patients who are more likely to die from the disease.6:56 a.m. 50 new infections per hour in Iran, health ministry spokesman saysA spokesman for Iran’s health ministry revealed Thursday just how badly the novel coronavirus is ravaging his country.Kianoush Jahanpour said on Twitter that 50 people are contracting COVID-19 every hour in Iran, with one person dying from the disease every 10 minutes.“In terms of this information, make a conscious decision about travel, traffic, transportation, and sightseeing,” Jahanpour tweeted.More than 17,360 people in Iran have been infected with the new virus and 1,135 of them have died, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Systems Science and Engineering. Iran has the third-highest national total of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the world.Iran’s deputy health minister, Alireza Raisi, urged residents on Wednesday to “please follow the guidelines and stay at home.”6:30 a.m. EU’s Brexit negotiator tests positiveThe European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator revealed Thursday that he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.Michael Barnier, a French politician serving as the European Commission’s Head of Task Force for Relations with the United Kingdom, made the announcement on Twitter.“I am doing well and in good spirits. I am following all the necessary instructions, as is my team,” Barnier tweeted. “For all those affected already, and for all those currently in isolation, we will get through this together.”I would like to inform you that I have tested positive for #COVID19. I am doing well and in good spirits. I am following all the necessary instructions, as is my team.For all those affected already, and for all those currently in isolation, we will get through this together.— Michel Barnier (@MichelBarnier) March 19, 2020Barnier was scheduled to hold talks over a future trade deal between Britain and the European Union on Wednesday with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Europe adviser, David Frost. But the negotiations were cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.Although the United Kingdom formally left the European Union on Jan. 31, the country is in a Brexit transition period as both sides work to agree on a trade deal before the end-of-year deadline.4:40 a.m. Honolulu denies two cruise ships from disembarkingPassengers and crew aboard two cruise ships set to dock in Honolulu won’t be allowed to disembark in Hawaii’s capital, officials said, even though there are no positive coronavirus cases on either vessel.State authorities and cruise line officials previously said passengers and crew would be allowed to leave the ships at Honolulu Harbor. But on Tuesday, Hawaii Gov. David Ige asked visitors to postpone their travel to the island state for at least 30 days as part of efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. The two vessels were already at sea at the time.Now, the ships will only be allowed entry to refuel and restock on food and supplies. The Maasdam, operated by Holland America Line, is scheduled to arrive at Honolulu Harbor on Friday and depart the following day. The Norwegian Jewel, operated by Norwegian Cruise Line, is scheduled to arrive Sunday.“The health and safety of all people in Hawaii is always at the forefront of operational decisions. Presently, all state resources are focused and directed towards containing the spread of COVID-19. Allowing more than 2,500 passengers and crew to disembark will further strain these resources,” Hawaii Department of Transportation Director Jade Butay said in a statement Wednesday night. “HDOT and the State are allowing the ships to dock at Honolulu Harbor so they may refuel and restock. Neither ship had originally planned to make Hawaii its final port and both will carry on to mainland destinations, where more resources can be marshaled to handle the passengers and crew properly.”4:09 a.m. Virus shuts down Las Vegas air traffic control towerThe air traffic control tower at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas has temporarily closed after an air traffic controller tested positive for the novel coronavirus on Wednesday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.The Las Vegas Terminal Radar Approach Control has assumed control of the airspace. McCarran International Airport remains open and operations will continue at a reduced rate until the situation is resolved.The FAA continues to maintain close contact with airports, airlines and other stakeholders during the situation, a spokesperson told ABC News.“The safety of our staff and the traveling public is the FAA’s top priority,” the spokesperson said in a statement late Wednesday. “Our controllers, inspectors and others with critical safety or security sensitive roles are essential components of our national airspace.”3:50 a.m. Half of the world’s student population out of schoolMore than 861.7 million children and youth — roughly half of the world’s student population — are not attending school as 107 countries enforce nationwide closures of educational institutions in an attempt to contain the coronavirus pandemic, according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.An additional 12 countries have implemented localized school closures and, should these become nationwide, millions of more students will be impacted, UNESCO warned.2:30 a.m. China reports no new domestic transmissions for 1st time since outbreak beganChina’s mainland has reported no new domestic transmissions of the novel coronavirus for the first time since the outbreak started — a major milestone in the country’s fight against the epidemic.The Chinese National Health Commission said on Thursday that there were 34 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the mainland during Wednesday, but all were imported from overseas. There were no new cases of any kind reported during Wednesday in the city of Wuhan nor its surrounding Hubei province, the original epicenter of the virus outbreak.The newly identified virus first emerged in Wuhan back in December and, within weeks, the city was reporting thousands of new infections daily at the height of the country’s epidemic. Overall, China has reported more than 81,000 confirmed cases, mostly in Hubei province.Earlier this month, Chinese state media reported that the last of a dozen makeshift hospitals built to house coronavirus patients in Wuhan had wrapped up operations and officially closed. The first groups of Chinese medical teams who were deployed to Wuhan to assist with the outbreak began leaving on Tuesday.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Hobbit house, barge, chapel, what’s your dream?

first_imgWho’d live in a hobbit house?A quarter of British people dream of living in a hobbit house. Truly, they do. A further 10 per cent would like to sail away to live on a converted boat, a canal boat or a floating house and, holy smoke, 26 per cent pray for a converted chapel, in which to rest.However, once they have realised how expensive/problematic/silly their dream is, most British buyers settle down and moderate their dreams. The most coveted feature of a modern home, reports the interiors retailer, is a country kitchen – a surprisingly high 54 per cent of women covet the cosy look.Many of us dream of living in the quintessential thatched country cottage.That country kitchen would, ideally, be in a traditional thatched cottage (32 per cent) and when it comes to the decor, most are in favour of traditional features and period character.And, of course, it follows that over 50 per cent of us fantasise about that cottage being set in a decent sized garden in a quiet rural setting.SIZE MATTERS, APPARENTLYMore than half of Brits would rather live in a small home (if not an actual hobbit house) in a premium location as opposed to a home with more square footage in a cheaper area.When considering green home credentials, sustainability is more important to men than women, with almost a third of men (31 per cent) making it a priority compared to just a quarter of women.Surprisingly, school catchment area, commuter transport links and local crime rates were only important to 17 per cent of the respondents.Matteo Fabbi at, who carried out the survey, said, “Interiors magazines are adorned with minimalist, modern interiors full of clean lines, shiny surfaces and open spaces, but actually our research has found that people are more in favour of cosy homes with traditional features and period character.”The UK’s most desired unconventional homes include:Traditional thatched cottageSustainable homeConverted period chapelEco-log cabinHobbit houseGlass houseConverted boat or canal bargeUrban micro-apartmentFloating houseLighthousematteo fabbi homes preference unconventional homes unusual houses February 23, 2017Sheila ManchesterWhat’s your opinion?
