Volatility and uncertainty are topics on every farmer and banker’s mind. Commodity prices have seen increases over the past year; however, so have input prices as well. This has created a lot of uncertainty for farmers and bankers. This conference is designed to help attendees prepare for the 2022-2023 loan renewal season by examining the many factors and opportunities affecting your ag portfolio. Hear from experts about the agricultural economy, commodity outlook, risk management strategies, farm profitability, policy outlook, land values, succession planning, and much more. The curriculum for the Advanced Agricultural Lenders Conference is meant to provide practical, hands-on learning designed for easy application at the bank.
The first day includes sessions on farmers expectations of farm profitability, the outlook on commodities, farm profitability, conversations you should be having with your farmers, current agricultural policy, the net return prospects of farms with rising input prices, and how to structure flex cash leases.
The second day features speakers on the topics of land values, the general economy and federal reserve policy, changes to gift and estate laws, succession planning, selling in a rising rate environment, and recruiting agricultural bankers.
