This bulletin deals for the most part with problems involved in the refinancing of farm mortgages in Iowa by the Farm Credit Administration. Since the problems considered affect all agencies with mortgages on Iowa land, the discussion is not limited to the federal plan. Those interested in obtaining detailed information on the federal program will find it in the appendix to this bulletin. For helpful suggestions in the preparation of this report the author is indebted to the members of the Agricultural Economics Department.

This is the second bulletin in a series examining and evaluating the prospects for agricultural recovery. The first covered “The Economic Situation in 1933.” The next bulletin in the series will consider the problem faced by the individual farmer in adjusting his business to fit the provisions of the corn-hog program.
