Farm Credit releases YBS data, new reg agenda

Aug. 16, 2021

The Farm Credit System’s regulator released updated data on its lending to young, beginning, and small farmers as well as a regulatory plan for the next 12 to 24 months.

Data: According to a Farm Credit Administration fact sheet and PowerPoint presentation, loans less than $250,000 account for approximately 10 percent of FCS loan volume. YBS data includes the double and triple counting of loans, making the data difficult to analyze.

Agenda: The FCA’s regulatory agenda is posted on the agency’s page on regulatory projects after approval by the Office of Management and Budget.
