Capital Farm Credit celebrated the Farm Credit Centennial on July 27 at the Texas A&M University Hildebrand Equine Complex. The reception celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Federal Farm Loan Act of 1916, which established the Farm Credit System to help rural areas access funding needed to grow and thrive. In addition to the reception, Capital Farm Credit awarded 100 scholarships to Texas students, including several from the Brazos Valley.
