Ann Aulita of the Cooperstown branch of financial services cooperative Farm Credit East recently visited Schoharie High School to present a check to members of the Schoharie Valley FFA.

“This year, Farm Credit East is donating to many local FFA chapters in our office territory,” Aulita said. Such support includes Schoharie Valley FFA.

Farm Credit East is part of the Farm Credit System,  a nationwide agricultural network that provides credit and affiliated services to those involved in agriculture and related industries. The Farm Credit System supplies the nation’s agricultural industry with nearly one-third of its credit needs.

The Farm Credit System, which marked its 100th anniversary on July 17, 2016, was founded to provide the necessary credit to America’s agriculture and rural communities. The System evolved to meet the changing needs of the agriculture, forest products and commercial fishing industries.
