On March 23, 2024, Bankbarn and Madero Dairy Systems executed a formal partnership in the US market to launch a competitive, efficient point of sale financing platform for Madero Dairy Systems equipment and technology.

Bankbarn’s innovative platform delivers a turnkey lending solution for dairy equipment dealers, competitive financing for farmers, and growth opportunities for Bankbarn’s lending partners.

Bankbarn sources multiple offers from top tier US lenders to ensure the best rate and flexible terms. Their platform leverages innovative software and direct bank integrations to approve financing and distribute capital within days, not weeks.

In addition, their lending network can competitively finance specialized dairy technology, such as cow monitoring and automation, which until now most dairies would have to pay in cash or rely on manufacturer leasing programs, which are known to constrain working capital for both OEMs and dealers.

Bankbarn is also partnered with leading US dairy processors to help introduce the industry’s first sustainable dairy technology program, which would help offset the upfront cost of various technologies, such as cow monitoring systems, milk meters, and automated milking & feeding systems, by measuring & verifying carbon intensity impact and then generating carbon credits for US dairy producers.

“Dairy farms are going through hard times. Partnering with Bankbarn is unlocking pending projects and accelerating the recovery of farms by increasing efficiency through the utilization of technology in milk production, maximizing value for our clients. This collaboration gives a break to those dairy farms who are struggling due to economic factors”.

Scott Woodside- Bankbarn- Founder and CEO

“Ag financing is broken. At Bankbarn, we’re working to fix it. Our partnership with Madero is a key step toward unlocking faster, more competitive financing for the dairy industry. We are excited to work with the Madero team, as well as the broader dairy community, to help accelerate adoption of on-farm technology to increase profits and enhance sustainability.”

To date, Bankbarn’s platform has sourced over $10MM in total loans, secured rates for farms up to 2.5% APR lower than other lending options, and reduced closing times to days, not weeks.
