Industries We Serve
CoBank has a mission to serve agriculture and rural communities, where our customers provide the critical lifeline services rural communities depend on—food, water, energy and communications.
From local grain cooperatives to global food, beverage and agribusiness
Local exchange carriers, wireless and cable companies, data centers, tower and fiber companies
Electric distribution cooperatives providing reliable power to rural communities
Power generation and transmission, battery storage and midstream assets
Healthcare facilities providing rural residents access to medical care
Water cooperatives and other operators of water and waste disposal facilities
With CoBank, there is more of a trust factor, and the relationship is more than transactional.
– Chris Freeman, CFO, Bongards’ Creameries
We finance agricultural cooperatives that bring farmers’ products to market, agribusinesses with name brand products on grocery store shelves, and livestock producers who raise and process protein for tables across America and around the world.
Through our funding of affiliated Farm Credit associations, we provide needed capital to farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses who produce our food, fuel and fiber.
We also finance rural utility infrastructure organizations that provide essential services – electricity, water and communications – to their communities, which are also home to many of America’s farmers and ranchers.
CoBank’s expert lending teams build strong relationships with our customers, focused on their long-term success rather than our own quarterly returns. Many of our customers have chosen to work with CoBank for decades, participating in our governance and sharing in our profits.
