Team CFC impacts students through TAMU Kingsville Partnership

Capital Farm Credit recently partnered with Texas A&M University (TAMU) Kingsville’s agribusiness program at the RELLIS Campus to develop a semester project for university farm management students. The project was created to give students hands-on experience in agribusiness, preparing them to be successful agricultural producers and operators.

Throughout the project, students had the opportunity to collaborate with Capital Farm Credit’s experienced lenders, creating business opportunities through real-life scenarios to help navigate a successful agriculture operation.

“To be a part of these students’ educational programming is an honor for our team,” said Jeff Norte, chief executive officer. “We are strongly committed to helping establish young people and believe giving, whether that be through resources or knowledge, is a priority we want to extend as often as we can.”

Students said the project set them up for success in the future, giving them new perspective and understanding for applying for an agriculture operating loan.

“This was a great experience,” said Lyndi Sanders, relationship manager. “I enjoyed working with these students and see how it can impact young and beginning farmers prior to starting an operation.”
