Through the third quarter 2013, Bremer made just over $1 billion in ag loans to farm clients in North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Farmland and Farm loans make up 16% of Bremer’s overall loan portfolio.
“Working with ag clients in our Bremer communities is and has historically been an important part of our overall business,” said Tammy Peterson, CEO of the Bremer Bank Grand Forks Charter. “In our three-state footprint, we have many ag communities and our bankers pride themselves on establishing deep relationships with our clients. We are humbled to be a top-ranked ag lender and be part of this great list of financial institutions.”Bremer Financial Corporation
