As you finalize your 2024 farm budget, consider Federated’s in-season finance program through Cooperative Finance Association (CFA). As of Jan. 1, the interest rate for CFA financing is at 8.5% for all co-op purchases, including seed, fertilizer, chemicals, application and other ag services, and energy (fuel/propane).
As reported previously, “there are some updates with CFA for 2024,” said Kelly Meyer, Federated’s business service specialist. CFA loan applications in 2024 will have a life cycle of three years; this is called the Evergreen loan. “Growers will not have to sign up [again] for three years,” said Meyer. The maturity date for 2024 loans is March 15, 2025.

Federated offers other – non CFA – financing options that are not tied to purchases solely from Federated:
