Capital Farm Credit celebrated Farm Credit's 100th anniversary of helping rural areas grow and thrive by providing farmers and ranchers with the capital they need to make their businesses successful on July 17, 2016. The House of Representatives and the Senate both introduced resolutions to commend and congratulate the Farm Credit system, and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack lauded the organization's role in American agriculture and spoke to its ongoing importance to the future. "July 17, 2016 marks the anniversary of Woodrow Wilson signing the Federal Farm Loan Act of 1916 which established the Farm Credit System," said Ben Novosad, chief executive officer. "The Farm Credit System has served America's rural communities for 100 years, and Capital Farm Credit is proud to be an important part of the system's rich history of supporting farmers and ranchers."
