Data are presented on thirty-three agricultural lending institutions whose officers were interviewed in early 1977. The data relate to institutional characteristics, the background of the lending officer interviewed, and institutional preferences among types of agricultural loans. These institutions range in size up to $100 million dollars in assets. The loan officers interviewed mostly had farm backgrounds and had attained a bachelor's degree. They expressed a strong preference for operating loans relative to other types of farm loans.
