The state's Farm Services Agency says some Nebraska farmers can get emergency loans from the US Department of Agriculture to help recover from storm damage.
FSA executive director Brian Wolford says farmers in Lancaster, Cass, Gage, Saline, Butler, Jefferson, Johnson, Otoe, Pawnee, Sarpy, Saunders, Seward, Thayer, and York counties can apply for the relief.
The most that can be borrowed is $500,000. The current interest rate on the emergency loans is 3.75-percent.
The money can be used to replace or repair farm equipment, livestock or buildings that were damaged during the storms.
The FSA says farmers have until January 25, 2005 to submit loan applications.
