Farm Credit Services of ND is a member-owned agricultural credit association providing loans to farmers and ranchers for real estate, machinery, livestock, and operating needs. Our unique Pat-NOW philosophy is based on the cooperative principle that members receive benefits based on their use of the cooperative’s services. As a result, income from these services helps keep interest rates low.
