AgriBank is part of the customer-owned, nationwide Farm Credit System. Under Farm Credit's cooperative structure, AgriBank is primarily owned by 13 local Farm Credit Associations, which provide financial products and services to rural communities and agriculture. AgriBank expertly and reliably obtains funds and provides funding and financial solutions to those Associations. The AgriBank District covers a 15-state area stretching from Wyoming to Ohio and Minnesota to Arkansas. We are dedicated professionals leveraging our tremendous assets into supporting the people who feed the world.
How We Serve
AgriBank’s mission is to expertly and reliably obtain funds and prudently provide funding and financial solutions primarily to the 13 Farm Credit Associations in the AgriBank District. Prudent lending standards and unwavering attention to risk management have resulted in a strong balance sheet. This balance sheet facilitates ongoing access to the financial markets, offering funding in the form of loan products with a wide variety of maturities, repricing and repayment options to District Associations. District Associations share in the positive benefits of a strong funding Bank through consistent access to capital, a broad array of financial products they use to serve their customers and an appropriate return on their investment through patronage distributions. We do all of this important work by listening, seeking feedback and delivering collaborative, innovative solutions. We foster a culture where diverse ideas are not only accepted, but expected. Delivery of quality products and financial services is our top priority.
