About Dairy State Bank
Proudly Serving Wisconsin since 1952!
Our story starts in 1952 when a group of local businessmen recognized the need for a second bank in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. In true community spirit, the initial capital investment for the bank was funded in part by local residents in support of the idea. A number of those same families remain owners to this day.
Soon after, our one location grew into four with the addition of offices in the communities of Haugen, Prairie Farm and Birchwood. Then, in the early 2000’s, the bank expanded to the Menomonie area merging the long-standing First Bank & Trust, with over 125 years in the community and five locations, into the Dairy State Bank family. Two more locations, Cumberland and Turtle Lake, were added in 2014 and finally a new office was opened in Bloomer in the spring of 2016.
As our bank grows, so does our commitment to our customers and the services we offer. Dairy State Bank has a full array of traditional banking products, and also offers innovative electronic banking services such as mobile banking and online mortgage applications that allow our customers to bank more conveniently.
Today, more than 60 years later, with our twelve locations serving eleven communities throughout west central and northwestern Wisconsin, Dairy State Bank has grown into one of the largest, locally-owned, community banks with over $500 milllion in assets. We are committed to the communities, businesses and people we serve. Our owners and directors believe there are many advantages to remaining an independent community bank and we take pride in providing the best customer service possible.
In today's world, banking built on personal relationships is a rare commodity. But at Dairy State Bank, it’s an everyday reality. From the once-a-week visit to the once-in-a-lifetime investment, we believe every moment we share with our members is an important one.
As a community bank, our customer’s deposits are reinvested into the community, influencing job growth one loan at a time. Decisions are made locally. We know our customers and understand their needs. We have a stake in their success because it adds to the overall strength of our community.
With 12 locations across three counties, DSB has grown into one of the largest community banks in northwest Wisconsin. And as our reach grows, so do our services. We offer a full range of personal and business banking products and services. And when you can't come to us, we'll come to you through our intuitive online and mobile banking tools.
