Farm Credit Services of America and Frontier Farm Credit:
The Benefits of Partnership

The title for the 2014 Frontier Farm Credit annual report was “New Beginnings.” That was the year our board of directors and leadership team laid the foundation for a strategic alliance with Farm Credit Services of America (FCSAmerica) – a proposal overwhelmingly approved by voting stockholders.

A vision for the future

The alliance, effective January 1, 2015, was initiated by Frontier Farm Credit following a series of strategic meetings to create a vision for how the Association would remain relevant to meet customer needs in the future.

Bill Miller, board chairman at the time, said, “We saw the benefits FCSAmerica customers were getting, and we wanted them for our customers. The efficiencies, the technologies, products and business offerings were things an association our size simply could not afford.”
