Kent Savage Of Capital Farm Credit Discusses Texas Land on the “Hunting Matters with Joe Betar” Podcast

(Houston, TX- May 22, 2024) Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF) and the “Hunting Matters” podcast welcomes Kent Savage of Capital Farm Credit.

Kent, a seventh generation Texan (g, g, g, grandfather Emilius Savage landed in TX 1829), grew up on a 2200-acre cow-calf, rice, and row-crop farming operation in Matagorda County. After graduating from Texas A&M University in 1985, Kent worked all his career in sales & marketing, primarily in the livestock production & grain crop industry before starting with Capital Farm Credit in January of 2013. Kent joined Capital Farm Credit as a Relationship Manager where he worked with the corporate marketing team for most of 8 years and then transitioned to more loan production duties.

Kent’s long career in the agriculture industry has given him the opportunity to amass a large network of customers and business affiliates within agriculture, real estate & conservation associations across Texas. He also credits his large network of friends across the entire state for helping him create and grow his relationship sales & lending style.

Kent also understands the importance of preserving the sensitive Texas prairie habitat system and has served on the Wildlife Habitat Federation’s Board of Trustees for the last 7 years, a non-profit organization that provides on-the-ground restoration, management and generational sustainability of prairie habitat for the conservation of soil, water, air, and wildlife.

While growing up on the ranch, he was always ready to go hunting or fishing, either on his family’s land or across Texas, Colorado & Wyoming. Kent has tried to carry that passion on to his own two sons, Parker (27) and Nicholas (25). He currently resides in Sugar Land with his wife Kim where they have lived for the last 30 years, however, they do look forward to moving out to a more rural lifestyle in the future.
