AgStar Company Profile
Our Mission: Enhancing Life in Agriculture and Rural America
Who We Are
AgStar Financial Services is a cooperative owned by our client-shareholders. We are directed by an 16-member Board of Directors. Our client stockholders elect fifteen directors, and the elected board appoints the outside director positions.
Who We Serve
We serve farmers, ranchers, agricultural-related enterprises with loans and related services. We also serve rural and small town residents with home, site and property loans. Our Rural Capital Network team is devoted to serving community and economic development, infrastructure needs and revitalization projects in Rural America as well.
AgStar is proud to be part of the Farm Credit System. As a Farm Credit entity, you are eligible for our loans, leases and related services if:
- You are an individual or legal entity engaged in farming or ranching. Farming includes full- or part-time activities associated with raising and/or caring for livestock, grains, horses, fruits, vegetables, horticultural plants, timber and any other plants or animals in a for-profit business.
- You have an agribusiness providing services directly related to agricultural production or you process and market agricultural products.
- You are seeking financing for a residence in a rural area or town with a population under 2,500.
- As part of the Farm Credit System, formed in 1916, we assist clients in our Local Service Area. We also serve leasing clients and agribusinesses throughout the Midwest.
