How we got started with FCSAmerica

My brother Paul and I started farming together in 1981 when we got out of college. We started working with Farm Credit because they could meet our needs for growth, and our financial officer was local, so it just worked well to work with them. We have had very good service over the years from Farm Credit.

Our business approach

e look at our operation as a business, and if you’re not growing, you’re standing still. So, we continue to grow. We’re starting to plan for the next generation, but we still want to grow and avoid being stagnant through the transition phase.

Bringing in the next generation

We’re trying to turn the farm over to a generation that’s long on work and short on cash, and we’ve got to try to plan for that. We’re trying to make it as smooth as possible.

Why we work with FCSAmerica

I see Farm Credit being very valuable where we are right now, because when we started, we needed somebody there who believed in the things we believed in and backed our dreams. They were there to provide support for us. Farm Credit supported our ideas and was willing to give us advice that we needed.
