Why a Cash Advance from CCGA?

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

To ensure that CCGA can continue to provide cash advance services to farmers during COVID‑19, our staff are working remotely. This situation is impacting our ability to meet our normal processing service standards. Thank you for understanding. Please read COVID‑19: Doing our part may impact service levels.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Why should you choose a farm cash advance?

  • $1,000,000 available to all farmers, which includes — ​
    • up to $100,000 interest-​free for all eligible commodities,
    • interest-bearing portion at prime rate less 0.75%​ (new, lower rate for 2020).
  • 50​ eligible commodities, including all major field crops and livestock
  • Up to 18-month repayment period on all crops, honey, hogs, lambs, sheep and goats
  • Up to 24-month repayment period on all cattle and bison​

​​These low interest rates lower your cost of production, which allows you to stretch your own dollar further. The added farm cash flow also gives you more time to execute your grain marketing plan. You can sell when the time and price is best for you.
