To ensure Farm Credit is viewed as the most knowledgeable ag lender and to complement the portfolio of static reports, AgFirst developed a common content platform to further enhance Associations’ business development efforts, credit risk management and knowledge center initiatives. AgSource, an Intranet-based tool, was introduced to all District employees in 2015.
AgSource is designed to be a dynamic and easy-to-navigate website resource for the most relevant and critical ag information available. It helps District employees keep up with market conditions, have access to commodity research and analysis from IHS Global, get the latest economic analysis from professors at major land grant universities, find background information and tools for preparing presentations, and have access to the latest political news affecting Farm Credit. Accessible from each Association’s Intranet page, AgSource has quickly become the top choice among employees for weekly ag updates and business planning and development activities.
