It Pays to Be a Member

American AgCredit borrowers are more than just customers. They’re customer-owners and members of the cooperative. As well as having a voice in how we operate, they are entitled to share in our success through a cash patronage distribution.

We issued a 1 percent cash patronage distribution for 2020, resulting in a record $142 million cash back to our members.

Who We Are

We are a leading provider of loan, lease and crop insurance products, each customized to the unique needs of your growing business. We are a member-owned cooperative that supports all segments of agriculture with reliable, consistent credit and financial services. Our range of financial services includes farm loans, farm mortgage loans, equipment loans, livestock loans, first time farmer loans and operations loans, as well as crop insurance and farm credit leasing programs.

We are a part of the Farm Credit System, a nationwide agricultural network that serves rural America by providing credit and affiliated services to farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses. Overall, the Farm Credit System supplies the nation’s agricultural industry with nearly one third of its credit needs.

The American AgCredit Difference

We’re much more than an ag bank — we are a member-owned co-op, and with that comes benefits you won’t find elsewhere. As customer-owners, our borrowers are able to share in our earnings, which is paid out in the form of an annual cash dividend. When you succeed, we all succeed.
