For over 100 years, F&M Bank has invested in the farmers and small businesses of the Shenandoah Valley. We know that agriculture is a large part of the economy in Augusta, Page, Rockingham, and Shenandoah counties. That’s why we are proud to offer financing options that are tailored to the needs of agriculture businesses in our communities. F&M can help you establish or expand your cattle farm with loans that are flexible and personalized, not one-size-fits-all.

Livestock Loans

Whatever your goals for your cattle farm, purchasing healthy and profitable animals is the foundation of a successful operation. F&M’s livestock loans can help you establish an initial population of cattle, expand your herd, or acquire the equipment and supplies necessary to keep your livestock fed, healthy, and productive. Shenandoah Valley cattle farmers use livestock loans for a variety of purposes including:

  • Beef cattle loans
  • Purchase stocker calves to be sold a few months later as feeder cattle
  • Finance your cow-calf operation
  • Pay for feedlot equipment and supplies in order to achieve the best results in your cattle prior to slaughter

Cattle Farm Construction Loans


Beyond livestock, you’ll need various buildings for shelter, feeding, and other purposes in order to run a successful cattle farm. F&M’s cattle farm construction loans help you establish or expand your cattle farm business. Some common uses for cattle farm construction financing include:

  • Purchase cattle feeding and water equipment
  • Build housing for your cattle
  • Buy or construct scales, holding pens, and other necessary supplies
  • Buy land to build on and establish your cattle farm or ranch
  • Refinance an existing cattle farm loan or related debt in order to receive a better rate and terms
