Next FSIA meeting Feb. 27          Send a link to a friend

[February 21, 2007]  The next meeting of Farmers Supporting Independent Agriculture is Tuesday, Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. at the Logan County Farm Bureau, 120 S. McLean St. in Lincoln.

At the meeting we will continue our work on FSIA's rural community reinvestment projects and related issues facing family farmers and rural communities. This is an important meeting that will focus on:
  • Rollout of the FSIA Family Farm and Community Loan program, which provides low-interest operating loans to family farmers who purchase their agricultural supplies from local dealers.

  • Continuing work that addresses the high cash rent policy for University of Illinois-owned farmland, which costs local communities at least $2 million per year.

We hope to see you Tuesday.
