Farm Credit Mid-America, a $19 billion financial services cooperative serving farmers, agribusinesses and rural residents in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, is committed to the future of agriculture. The cooperative will provide more than $125,000 in scholarship funding for youth pursuing a higher education in the association’s four-state territory throughout 2013.
“The farming population is aging,” Robin Timmons regional vice president, Farm Credit. “Fifty percent of farmers are less than ten years away from retirement. Providing the financial means for youth interested in furthering their agricultural knowledge is a solid way to protect the future of farming. As agriculture continues to grow and evolve we will do our part to help students continue to grow with the industry.”
