Farm Credit West is a cooperative. Our customers are also our owners and stockholders. The farmers and ranchers who borrow from Farm Credit West elect Directors from among their peers to serve on the Board that guides the Association.
While competitive financial institutions are often eager to fund agriculture clients when markets are strong, they have less flexibility to work with borrowers during downturns as they ultimately report, and are beholden to their stockholders. At Farm Credit West, our stockholders are our owners and customers. We share in your success during good times and are there for you through tough times. We have the stability and flexibility to withstand the volatile nature of agribusiness, and help customers through the inevitable challenging patches. Website
