Advanced Agricultural Credit Conference

As margins of agricultural producers get tighter, making sure that lenders and farmers are prepared is crucial for continued success. We are in the midst of a transition period to lower commodity prices, increased international competition for our commodities, and higher volatility. As a result, farmers have a variety of options to manage the risks they face. Hear from experts about the agricultural economy, commodity outlook, risk management strate- gies, farm bankruptcies, Farm ServiceAgency, and much more.

This conference is designed to help attendees prepare for the 2019-2020 loan renewal season. The decisions producers make are based on commodity, livestock, and economic outlooks. David Widmar will get the conference started with his view on the essentials to managing risks in the current farm economy. The first day also includes sessions on commodity outlook, updates to the farmbill, and risk management strategies and tools that can help manage cash flow.

In the morning of the second day, we change topics slightly as we have two presentations on the future of agriculture. Even in the current climate of low commodity prices and tighter margins, planning for what obstacles the agricultural economy will face next is essential. These talks help provide a forward looking view of what’s to come for farmers and lenders. After that, we shift back to managing in the current environment wish sessions on handling farm bankruptcies, what’s new at the Farm Service Agency, and tips for effective loan presentations along with balanced risk rating system for credit analysis.
