Bank Highlights: At a Glance

What We Do

  • Provide funds to 14 rural financing cooperatives that own the Farm Credit Bank of Texas and to two Other Financing Institutions. These lenders in turn provide financing to agricultural producers, rural homeowners and landowners, and agribusiness firms.
  • Invest in rural America by extending capital and liquidity to large food and agribusiness firms, rural utilities, and rural telecommunications companies through participation and syndication transactions in the capital markets.

Funding Source

Our funds come primarily from the sale of Farm Credit System securities to investors in the national and international money markets.
