Thirty-eight Missouri counties — including Texas County — have been designated by USDA as primary natural disaster areas from recent drought.

Producers who suffered losses can call a Farm Service Agency office to see if they are eligible for emergency loans and for the requirements.

The emergency credit can be used to meet various recovery needs, including replacing equipment or livestock, reorganizing a farming operation or refinancing certain debts.

The deadline to apply is June 17, 2019.
