2022 Annual Report
Success in agriculture takes vision. And a lender who shares yours. We understand what agricultural industry leaders, innovators, and experts need to succeed — and we’re committed to their success. More than simply meeting our customers’ immediate needs, we anticipate what’s next. Our products, services, and technologies will add value and growth to our customers’ operations today and for years to come.
Financial Summary with Chief Strategy and Financial Officer Jerry Rose
We maintain a healthy loan portfolio by serving all segments of agriculture. Risks that may be associated with a particular geographic region — such as adverse weather, land pricing, or commodity markets — may be offset by stronger performance in our other regions, thereby reducing pressure on the overall portfolio. Hear from Chief Strategy and Financial Officer Jerry Rose as he reviews our financial results.
Key Financial Data
American AgCredit outperformed expectations and delivered record-setting financial results last year. In 2022, we once again experienced double-digit loan growth and exceeded net income compared to the prior year. Our solid financial position helps ensure that we can serve our mission in good times and bad — sustainably supporting all of agriculture, regardless of conditions in the marketplace. For 17 consecutive years, we’ve been able to return a portion of our earnings to our customers, totaling more than $1.2 billion. This is the fifth consecutive year our Board has chosen to return a full 1% to our customers, resulting in more than $185 million cash back.
MORE THAN $1.2 BILLION DOLLARS RETURNED TO OUR CUSTOMERS SINCE 2005

Triangle H / Hands Enterprises
Marisa Kleysteuber is a fifth-generation cattle farmer who manages Triangle H / Hands Enterprises with her father, Sam Hands. By using an index to track the health and quality of the herd, the cattle-feeding operation carved out a niche working with beef producers to deliver a high-quality product to consumers. Listen as Marisa describes how she’s progressing the family business forward with data-based strategies.
Spinaca Farms, a family produce operation based in the fertile Santa Clara Valley in California, supplies national produce brands year round. Founders Rick and Jeannette Andrade’s son, Zack Andrade, now runs the operation as president. Zack has been instrumental in expanding the business with BoomVeg Fresh Powders, which make use of all the edible, nutritious parts of the plant that were previously discarded.
