Your Biggest Benefit

As a borrower-owner 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 $400,500,000 in patronage refunds over the past 35 years!

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