Ralph Robertson says his bank is every bit as important to the success of his farm as the seed he sows, the tractors he drives and the cooperation of Mother Nature. The 54-year-old Carroll County farmer learned that more than 25 years ago, when the local bank with which he had been doing business turned its back on him because agriculture was going through a period of financial difficulty. When times were good, he said, the commercial bank served his money needs. "But in the mid-'70s, when times were tough for farmers, the bank shifted its focus," Robertson said.
