Patronage

Your Biggest Benefit

As a member-borrower of AgCredit, one of the biggest benefits is sharing in the profits of the Association through our patronage program. Patronage reduces your cost of borrowing by returning a portion of our net income to our borrowers based on the proportion of interest paid on their loan and total interest earned by the association. We have returned more than $290,000,000 in patronage refunds over the past 32 years!

Check out the video to learn about the patronage program in 90 seconds.
