Board of Directors for Farm Credit of Southern Colorado

Your partner in agriculture since 1916.

At Farm Credit of Southern Colorado, we believe that agricultural financing is a full-time job, so we’ve given it our undivided attention since we began doing business in 1916. And as a network of locally managed lending offices, we have a unique understanding of your business challenges and opportunities.

We know ag. It’s what we do. It’s where we live.

Our Board of Directors

Our Colorado Farm Loans and Financing Board of Directors is comprised of 12 members: 10 active borrowers that are elected by all of our cooperative members, and 2 external directors appointed by the board.

These directors meet at our headquarters buildings and oversee committees, the association, and help guide our CEO who in turn leads our association.
