Agenda

The Agricultural Lenders School was designed to train early to mid-career lenders specializing in financing agriculture. The school's five-day curriculum was developed to meet the training needs of surveyed lending institutions.

Sessions use practical examples to demonstrate concepts focused on issues critical to successful agricultural lending. Speakers use a balance of presentations, exercises, and case studies to provide a quality adult learning experience.

Topics

For the last two days of training, participants in the Agricultural Lenders School will join the Emerging Issues in Agricultural Lending Symposium, an annual program focused on current topics in agricultural lending.

He was a pioneer in the development of the Farm Financial Standards and has taught extensively at various U.S. banking schools and meetings on agricultural finance and analysis.
