USDA gives farmers more time to apply for aid due to shutdown

CHICAGO, Jan 8 (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Tuesday extended the deadline for farmers hurt by trade wars to apply for aid payments as the partial shutdown of the federal government drags on.

The deadline, originally set for Jan. 15, will be delayed for the number of days that USDA offices are closed, according to the agency.
