Most producers who have worked with the Farm Service Agency are aware that low interest loans are available on grain they harvest once it is stored in the bin or at an approved warehouse. These loans are for a nine month period and offer the producer an opportunity to use the funds disbursed under the loan for operating capital or other needed purposes. The current interest rate on loans is 5.125 percent. This will be the rate used for any loans disbursed in November. In January all outstanding loans will have the interest rate adjusted to whatever the rate is on Jan. 1. The process for obtaining a loan is very simple. You just stop into the FSA Office and fill out a CCC-666 to start the process.

Ohio's archery season opened Sept. 29, but it didn't mean much to many area bow hunters. Lots went out on opening day, of course, because it's traditional, and some made a few trips later. But it's during the rut that bow and crossbow hunters become serious, because deer move then, and the big bucks get silly. It's the year's best chance to put antlers on the wall and meat in the freezer.
