On July 1, 2017, three successful Farm Credit cooperatives joined together to form Compeer Financial. The merger combined the strengths of 1st Farm Credit Services, AgStar Financial Services and Badgerland Financial to serve clients and communities in 144 counties across Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Compeer is now a trusted partner providing a wide-range of financial products and services to those living and working in agriculture and rural America. Compeer’s portfolio of products includes loans, leases, risk management, tax and accounting and more, delivered with personalized service by a team with expertise in agriculture and the financial services industries.
About the Name
“Compeer Financial” was specifically chosen as the new cooperative’s name because the word “compeer” means “together with equals”. This speaks to the way in which Compeer is a unified, member-owned cooperative with our clients and communities at the center of everything we do. The name solidifies our promise to advance agriculture and rural America with unmatched passion and commitment – and to do it together.
