Farm Credit Service celebrated it’s 100 anniversary Sunday. President Obama, the House and Senate, and Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack all recognized the milestone.

The President said, “FCS plays an integral role in economies across the country.” Secretary Vilsack attended the Farm Credit 100 luncheon on July 16. The event celebrated the anniversary milestone as well as winners in Farm Credit’s Fresh Perspectives Search. That program identifies prospective leaders who will shape the vision for agriculture into the next 100 years. Vilsack said, “Rural communities trust Farm Credit Services to be there in good times, but more importantly in tough times.” Todd Van Hoose, President and CEO of Farm Credit Service, said they’re grateful for the support and look forward to serving rural America for the next 100 years.
