Discover the Farm Credit Difference

The Farm Credit Mission

Farm Credit supports rural infrastructure providers and farmers by helping to keep American agriculture competitive in global markets and we give back to our rural communities to help keep them viable and thriving. Our Mission at Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma of supporting rural communities and agriculture with reliable, consistent credit and financial services remains just as critical today as it was more than 100 years ago.

Our Story

Since President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation creating the Federal Land Bank System in 1916, Farm Credit has evolved into the dynamic network of 67 independent financial institutions. Farm Credit lends money to farmers and ranchers, farmer-owned cooperatives and other agribusinesses, rural homebuyers and companies exporting U.S. agricultural products around the world in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. This rich history has helped us build an extraordinary depth of knowledge of rural credit needs.

The Farm Credit Vision

Agricultural producers meet challenges with grit and determination and pursue opportunities with specialized knowledge and insight that work hand in hand to make farming and ranching in rural America a legacy worth preserving. The Vision of Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma is to maintain our position as Western Oklahoma’s top choice for agricultural and rural community lending. We strive to maintain our position as the most trusted source for rural community support in Western Oklahoma.

The Farm Credit Landscape

From the Black Mesa to the Red River, from commercial feed yards in irrigated corn country, to cow/calf and stocker producers working throughout our territory, from Guymon to Tuttle, and from Alva to Altus—The Landscape of our territory is diverse and like no other. Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma has the privilege to serve the best!
