Agribusiness: It's Our Roots

Interra’s agribusiness team offers farm loan programs and a commitment to walk beside our agribusiness members through all phases of the business. Whether you’re a first generation farmer or fifth generation owner, Interra’s goal and mission is to provide services and options that suit your needs. From land and equipment purchases to agribusiness expertise with market trends, Interra is your agribusiness partner.

“Our lenders are committed to taking care of our members,” stated Jeremy Bender, Regional Vice President of Agribusiness Services. “Having a team that is from the area, and has experience in farming, really allows relatability to occur within our membership,” he added. “Taking care of our members can be anywhere from assisting with an intermediate loan to providing a quick tip to best assist with their operation,” he concluded.

With competitive products, members have a variety of options to choose from based on their needs including:

  • Operating loans for dairy, livestock and grain needs
  • Inermediate loans for machinery, equipment or seasonality planning
  • Farm mortgage offers trusted lenders who can customize mortgage options
  • INtime lending for agribusiness loans up $150,000 needing decisions in 48 hours or less1

Agribusiness is a part of Interra’s roots, a service that has been offered since its inception in 1932. Engrained in the communities the credit union serves, the agribusiness team is actively involved in the Elkhart, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Marshall, Noble, and St. Joseph county fairs and participates in auctions for each fair. “With the conclusion of 2021 fair season, Interra
purchased roughly a total of $18,000 at the auctions,” stated Bender. “We are invested in 4-H and this is a way we can support the program and its efforts,” he added. In addition to supporting local fairs, Interra’s agribusiness team is a proud supporter of several community give-back opportunities throughout the year.

To: Holders of Traditional IRA Accounts

Payments from your IRA are subject to federal income tax withholding, unless you elect no withholding.

You may change your withholding election at any time prior to receipt of a payment. To change your withholding election, complete the appropriate form provided by your credit union.

Withholding from IRA payments, when combined with other withholding, MAY relieve you from payment of estimated income taxes. However, your withholding election does not
affect the amount of income tax you pay.

You may incur penalties under the estimated tax rules if your withholding and estimated tax payments are insufficient. We recommend you seek advice from a qualified tax advisor on tax
