This report provides operating statistics for and describes structural changes in the Farm Credit System (FCS) banks and associations for 1986-91. In addition, statistics on FCS district loan portfolios are provided. The 1986-91 period was characterized by significant downsizing and restructuring of system institutions. Loan portfolios shifted away from long-term farm lending. Short-and intermediate-term lending increased as a percentage of total loans. Profitability of FCS institutions generally improved over the period as the agricultural economy strengthened and a favorable interest rate environment persisted. Improved profitability enabled FCS institutions to strengthen their capital positions. Rural residence loans did not approach their statutory limit of 15 percent of total loans in any district, but constituted more than 5 percent of total loans in three districts.
