Join us for a free ag seminar for young, beginning farmers. This seminar features speakers who will talk about issues pertinent to the young, beginning farmer.
Dr. Kohl, Professor Emeritus of Agricultural Finance and Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship at
Virginia Tech, will present an overview of what is ahead for the agricultural economy, land values, cash rents and the overall bottom line. He will also address adjustments that producers must make for success.
Many of America’s next generation of farmers and ranchers are supported through the Farm Service
Agency’s (FSA) “Beginning Farmer” direct and guaranteed loan programs. Richard Fordyce, Administrator
of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s FSA, will discuss the benefits of the loan programs available
for young, beginning producers through FSA.
A panel of FCS Financial experts will share what they are seeing in today’s financial environment. Plus, they are ready to answer your lending and insurance questions.
