NORMAL – Prepared for a versatile agricultural economy, 1st Farm Credit Services ended 2012 in a strong position, having growth in income, capital, assets, and crop insurance acres insured.

The Association’s financial results for the year recently were released in the 2012 annual report. More than 10,000 Illinois farmers and agribusinesses in the northern 42 counties of the state rely on the financial services provided by 1st Farm Credit Services.
