Ag Lending is a HUGE part of many community banks credit services. It requires, however, a different set of credit skills and know-how and we are seeing an experience gap in ag lending that needs to be addressed. It’s a specialized type of credit, to be sure, but it is one that has the potential to lead to generational and profitable relationships for you and the bank. The demand is high…the supply of ag lenders is getting low.
We have today two of the leading voices in ag lending and ag economics, Dr. David Kohl and Tim Ohlde. Tim will be facilitating our Ag Lending 101 course coming up on October 6-9 (Register here: barretbanking.org/landings/ag-lending-101/) and Dr. Kohl is a nationally renowned speaker and Professor Emeritus of Ag Economics at Virginia Tech. They have some excellent advice today for both experienced and new ag lenders that is well worth your time today.
