2/5/1975--Introduced. Authorizes emergency loans to farmers, ranchers, and oyster producers who are unable to obtain sufficent credit elsewhere, to cover losses arising from natural disasters.

Allows the Secretary of Agriculture to delegate such loan-making to the State directors of the Farmers' Home Administration. Allows such loans to be made on an annual basis for five additional years, at prevailing market rates.
