LOUISVILLE, Ky. — It’s the time of year when people’s thoughts turn to giving thanks.
In keeping with the season, Farm Credit Mid-America launches its 299 Ways to Say Thanks campaign aimed at acknowledging farmers, customers and the rural community for all they do to invest in and secure the future of agriculture and rural America.
One way Farm Credit is expressing gratitude to the organizations that make rural America and agriculture unique and successful is by inviting farmers, customers and community members to help choose an organization to receive a $100,000 special funding boost from the financial services cooperative.
The organizations, all of which serve young people in agriculture, are 4-H, FFA and the Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers Program. To cast your vote, visit e-farmcredit.com/299Thanks before Jan. 1, 2015.
Farm Credit is also saying thanks to farmers by extending a special 2.99% fixed rate on operating loans through March 31, 2015, for qualified borrowers. As farmers work through harvest and plan for next season, this special rate can help them manage their cash flow and be ready for 2015. “We’re pleased to extend this operating loan rate as one way to show our appreciation for all farmers do for agriculture, and to help them secure the funds they need to achieve their goals,” said Bill Johnson, president and chief executive officer, Farm Credit Mid-America.
