Farm Credit is a nationwide system of cooperatives formed almost 100 years ago specifically to provide financing to farmers.  In this series, you will learn about the types of loans available, with experienced loan officers walking  you through the information needed to apply for a loan, how to prepare that information and  why.  Whether you are applying for your first loan to purchase land, operating money or equipment or if you are considering an expansion of your operation, this beginning farmer webinar will explain how to make your application process more successful and less stressful.
