Grange Co-op said Friday it has purchased the former Ray's Food warehouse at 2525 Washburn Way in Klamath Falls.

The location is about five times larger than Grange Co-op's present Klamath Falls store just down the street. The Central Point-based co-op hasn't set an opening date for its new location.

In September 2005, Grange Co-op acquired American Feed & Farm Supply stores in Klamath Falls and Grants Pass.

The Farm Service Agency in Oregon has announced that effective Oct. 1, the maximum loan limit for FSA's guaranteed loan program will be $1,094,000. The limit had been $949,000.

Earlier it was announced that the new Farm Bill also raised FSA's direct loan limit to $300,000, up from the prior $200,000 limit. The increased guarantee and direct loan limits reflect rising costs affecting farmers and ranchers.

Operating loans may be used to purchase livestock, farm equipment, feed, seed, fuel, farm chemicals, insurance and other operating expenses. Operating loans also can be used to pay for minor improvements to buildings, costs associated with land and water development, family living expenses and to refinance debts under certain conditions.
