Farm Cash Management
Your money flexes its muscle, you exercise your options with an account designed to fit your needs. It’s the money market investment account that manages itself. Your money works harder and smarter, just like you.
The Farm Cash Management® product offers a convenient way to earn income from on-hand cash by combining the return of a short-term investment account with the convenience of your Farm Credit Midsouth revolving line of credit. You have constant access to your cash—if you withdraw more than your investment and earnings total, Farm Credit Midsouth will automatically access your revolving line of credit. Whenever your payment is greater than the balance in your revolving line of credit, you have the opportunity to automatically invest the surplus in a short-term AgriBank Investment Bond. Interest accrues daily and is added to investment at the end of the month.

A farm credit management account combines your Farm Credit Midsouth operating loan with the return of a short-term bond investment to help you minimize your net interest cost.
