Farm Credit Lending Support To Illinois Agriculture

1st Farm Credit Services and Farm Credit Illinois are celebrating the 100th year of the Farm Credit System with a $100,000 commemorative contribution to the Illinois agriculture industry.

They will distribute the special centennial contribution among ten different Illinois agriculture groups. The groups are: Illinois 4-H, Illinois Ag-in-the-Classroom, Illinois AgrAbility, Illinois Agricultural Leadership Program, Illinois Agri-Women, Illinois FFA, Illinois State University Department of Agriculture, Southern Illinois University College of Agricultural Sciences, University of Illinois College of ACES, and Western Illinois University School of Agriculture.

Farm Progress Show attendees may help “Designate the Dollars” by voting for one of these ten organizations and the $100,000 will be dispersed based on the percentage of votes each group receives.
