Ag Financing That’s Right for You

Nebraska State Bank has supported agriculture in rural America for nearly a century. We’ve specialized in USDA guaranteed farm loans and ranch loans for over 30 years, and earned FSA preferred lender status in 12 states.

If you’re considering working with us, know that nothing beats experience. Our people come from farm, ranch, and rural backgrounds, and some of us still trade a desk chair for a tractor seat at the end of the day. We live agriculture, and look forward to helping you with your unique challenges.

We Make Farm Loans Less of a Chore

Our loan officers have over 60 years of combined ag loan experience. That experience is combined with a thorough understanding of the Farm Service Agency application process. So if you need farm loans or ranch loans, we’re uniquely qualified to help you get financing.

Once a loan officer promptly reviews your application, we’ll talk with you to collect the details about your specific operation. Then, we’ll work together to find your best financing solution.

Whether you’re wanting to finance real estate, livestock, equipment, or operating expenses, you’ll see that we have the knowledge and commitment to get your Farm Service Agency guaranteed loan or Beginning Farmer loan done right.

FSA Guaranteed Loan Program

We don’t have to tell you how challenging farming and ranching is these days. Throw in external factors like extreme weather and bank mergers, and you may not have access to the credit needed to make necessary changes to your operation.

Nebraska State Bank is proud to offer FSA guaranteed loans, because they offer more favorable loan terms to folks who may not get approved through other loan programs.
