Through the third quarter of 2014, Bremer made nearly $1.1 billion in ag loans to clients in North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Farmland and farm loans make up nearly 16% of Bremer’s overall loan portfolio. Bremer consistently has ranked one of the top 15 ag lenders in the nation in recent years.
“Ag has historically been and continues to be a very important part of our overall business,” said Roger Madison, Bremer Bank Southwest Minnesota Region Chief Executive Officer. “In our three-state footprint, we not only have many ag communities but we also have many bankers who come from an ag background or a farm family. We take great pride in being a top-ranked ag lender along with this great list of financial institutions.”Bremer Financial Corporation
