FSA now making farm ownership training loans

Marion A. Talley, county supervisor of the Farm Security Administration, said yesterday a limited number of new Rehabilitation loans will be made in Blount County. Farm ownership, Mr. Talley said, has always been the goal of the Farm Security program, and the Rehabilitation program is a stepping stone to farm ownership. Mr. Talley said that a total of 206 farmers in the county had attained ownership through the Farm Security program after enrollment in the Rehabilitation program.
