Pete Best is Here for You

As farmers and ranchers, you know that working in agriculture can be both challenging and rewarding. You also know that the cold winter months are a crucial time for cashing in on bull sales, while also making preparations for the upcoming calving season. Your line of work demands care for the land you love and the livestock you raise. It also offers you the chance to spend your days in the great outdoors, and requires a desire to put in an honest day’s hard work.

At Dakota West Credit Union, Ag Lender Pete Best knows what it takes to survive and thrive in the west because he lives and works here, too. With years of personal and professional experience in the industry, Pete understands the ups and downs of farming and ranching in North Dakota.

Pete describes himself as a motivated, pragmatic and naturally intuitive individual who values honor and trust. “Like you, this is my family’s home and we aren’t going anywhere. We may go through some challenging times, but I truly believe the future is bright if we follow the right path and have a little luck on our side.” Pete is committed to finding a way to fulfill your vision and cultivate success through strategy, industry knowledge, and sincerity.
