Welcome to the National Livestock Producers Association's
& Goat Fund
is the mission of the National Livestock Producers Associations
Sheep & Goat Fund to encourage innovation and efficiency in
the sheep and goat industries by providing credit to eligible
and qualified entities.
NLPA Sheep and Goat Fund is a revolving fund established within
NLPA to assist the U.S. sheep and goat industries by strengthening
and enhancing the production and marketing of sheep and goats
and their products in the United States.
Fund is the result of a joint effort of the National
Sheep Industry Improvement Center (NSIIC) (now
the American Sheep and Goat Center) and the National
Livestock Producers Association (NLPA). The
NSIIC made funds available to NLPA, which serves as an Intermediary
and established the Sheep and Goat Fund. NLPA has the ability
to service and administer this important program and was selected
for their ability to provide:
with livestock production, processing and marketing-related
capability in urban and rural areas; and the
ability to process and
service loans from all segments of
the sheep and goat industries; from production through the
Sheep and Goat Industry is in need of creative ideas that
will add value to sheep and goats and the products they provide.
National Livestock Producers Association encourages industry
members to evaluate the immediate needs in their area, gather
support from others who recognize those needs, and work together
to find the most effective solutions to local concerns.
The purpose of the fund has been to assist in financing projects beyond the farm gate; however, as of June 2013 the fund has the ability to make term loans to sheep producers for the purpose of flock expansion. Click here for more information.
