The federal government has delivered a record-setting $148 million in loans to Kansas farmers during the 2009 fiscal year.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farm Service Agency in Kansas recently announced that the money went to about 1,300 family farmers.

The loans were used for a range of purposes, including to help farmers plant and harvest crops, purchase livestock and machinery or reorganize their business.
