Amidst talk of recession and credit becoming extremely difficult to secure, the National Livestock Producers Association (NLPA) encourages anyone involved in the sheep and goat industries to take advantage of the NLPA Sheep and Goat Fund.
The NLPA Sheep and Goat Fund is a revolving fund with the sole purpose of assisting and improving the sheep and goat industries in the United States. Since 2000, the fund has made more than $18 million in low-interest loans with flexible terms to producers to enhance operations that deal with sheep and goats and their products.
The fund can be used in many ways, including purchasing land or equipment, renovations, implementing weed control, fire protection, predator control and breeding and genetics programs. The fund can also be a valuable tool in restructuring your current financial package to help secure longer-term, fixed-rate loans that may otherwise be unavailable.
The application, descriptions of funded projects, news and industry links are available at www.SheepandGoatFund.com
