Industries We Serve
CoBank has a mission to serve agriculture and rural communities, where our customers provide the critical lifeline services rural communities depend on—food, water, energy and communications.
We finance agricultural cooperatives that bring farmers’ products to market, agribusinesses with name brand products on grocery store shelves, and livestock producers who raise and process protein for tables across America and around the world.
Through our funding of 22 Farm Credit associations, we provide needed capital to farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses who produce our food, fuel and fiber.
We also finance rural utility infrastructure organizations that provide essential services – electricity, water and communications – to their communities, which are also home to many of America’s farmers and ranchers.
CoBank’s expert lending teams build strong relationships with our customers, focused on their long-term success rather than our own quarterly returns. Many of our customers have chosen to work with CoBank for decades, participating in our governance and sharing in our profits.
With CoBank, there is more of a trust factor, and the relationship is more than transactional.
