AgHeritage Farm Credit Services Customer-Owners Receive $44.95 Million of Profits Since 2006

AgHeritage Farm Credit Services (AFCS) will pay a record $5 million in profits from 2019 profits to customer-owners this spring through its Patronage Program.

“We are owned by the very customers we serve, “said AFCS President & CEO Greg Cole. “Ownership entitles our customers to special benefits such as sharing in our profits.  Over the past 14 years, we have distributed $44.95 million through the Patronage Program.”
“Farmers are running complex businesses, and it is important to have good financial resources and expertise.  Not only has Farm Credit supported rural America with reliable, dependable credit and financial services for more than 100 years, we do so as a cooperative. Our cooperative structure allows customers local control through the Board election process as well as the opportunity to share in the profits through our Patronage Program,” stated Dwain Morris, AFCS Board Chairman.  

The Patronage Program returns a portion of the association’s net earnings to eligible customer-owners. Patronage refunds are based on the proportion of interest paid on an individual’s loan to net interest earned. 

For more information on the Patronage Program, call 1-800-444-FARM to reach a local AgHeritage FCS branch office.
