USDA/FSA RIN: 0560-AI09 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: ●Financing Poultry and Livestock Contract Grower Facilities 
Abstract: The Farm Service Agency (FSA) is preparing an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) to request comments on what regulatory changes, if any, FSA should make to its loan regulations to address the impacts of recent changes in market conditions for poultry and swine contract growers and integrators. Poultry and pork integrators are companies that use contract growers to raise poultry or swine, and process and market poultry and pork products. Recent increases in energy and feed costs, accompanied by reduced demand, have reduced integrator profit margins and returns. Some integrators have closed processing plants and not renewed grower contracts, or renewed contracts for fewer years. Many contract growers have FSA direct or guaranteed loans. Typically, the loans to finance the construction of grower facilities have a term of 15 years, but the contracts are for fewer years. Before the loan is repaid, integrators have required costly additional capital improvements or declined to renew the contract, thus reducing the ability of the grower to repay the loan. These market conditions have resulted in multiple farm failures and significant losses to the growers, lenders and FSA. FSA has seen defaults in its portfolio of loans in these industries increase and anticipates that this trend of loan losses will continue. The ANPR will allow the public to provide input on the role FSA loan programs should have in financing in the poultry and pork integrator industries, and to suggest potential changes to the FSA loan program regulations.
