More farmers feel pressure from banks to catch up on loans
Many farmers continue to lose money in this recession.
And more say they're feeling pressure from banks to catch up with their loans. The Wisconsin Farm Center mediates those disputes and coordinator Roger James says they've handled more than 250 cases in the first nine months of this year.
That's 2.5 times the number from all of last year. And it's a similar increase above the last farm crisis of the late 1980s.
