Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma began in 1917 after an act of Congress was implemented to ensure farmers would be able to obtain adequate financing for their operations. The associations were designed to directly assist farmers, ranchers, rural home residents and agri-businesses with all types of financing needs.
These associations are member-owned financial cooperatives, and part of the nationwide Farm Credit System. Their customers/members elect a board of directors, who then set policy. As a cooperative, they refund some earnings to members according to their patronage.
They serve all counties in Oklahoma and are active in all the communities in their lending territories. They donate time and money to many youth programs, including FFA and 4-H, in each county. They have been involved in or supported many agricultural events throughout Oklahoma.
They have received special recognition from the local and state FFA organizations, as well as Extension supporters.
Customer service is critical to their success. Not only do they aim to be competitive but also strive to provide the best service to members. They are constantly rated highly by members and work hard every day to earn their business.
They want members and potential members to think of them first when any financial need arises on their farm or ranch. They have a diverse range of financial products including financing everything from farmland to fertilizer, ranches and cattle to equipment, and anything in between. They will work with you to find the best financial package that works best for you.
