With farmers unable to cash checks, one agency is ordered back open


January 17, 2019

ATWATER, Minn. – Matt Anderson, who raises corn and other crops near this central Minnesota town, has a $20,000 check that he can’t cash because of the government shutdown.

Like many farmers, Anderson borrows money from the Farm Service Agency. And when he gets paid for the crops he grows, the check is made out to both him and the FSA. But with that agency closed by the government shutdown that began nearly four weeks ago, he and other farmers have been left in limbo, unable to cash those checks and prepare for 2019 planting work.
