How it works
Apply online by completing the simple 3 step application process and you will get an answer in minutes.
We will call you
One of our livestock experts will call you within one business day (Monday to Friday, not including public holidays) to confirm the details of your application.
Find your stock
Find the stock you want to purchase, using any stock agent or purchase method you choose. Send us the invoice and we pay it directly to the stock agent or vendor. Following sale of the stock, you’ll receive the sale value less the purchase price, fees, costs and accrued interest.
No, the online application is one part of the process designed to reduce the amount of paperwork you need to fill out.
When you apply online, a Rural Manager will call you to talk through your options including our fees, interest rate and documentation needed.
If your application is approved you will receive a loan document that once you accept and sign, will finalise your application.
You will not incur any fees until your first livestock invoice is paid by us.
