Seminar Assists Ag Lenders with Risk Management Education

The 28th Annual Tri-State Agriculture Lenders’ Seminar will be held on Wednesday, October 29th at the Midway Best Western Hotel in Dubuque, Iowa from 9:45 am – 3:00 pm.  This year’s focus is on market outlooks for livestock, grains and dairy along with the issues of crop budgeting, crop insurance and the farm bill.
 
“Price risk management is getting to be the major variable for profitability in many commodity enterprises. Understanding the markets is a necessary part of farm management assistance for agricultural lenders as well”, says Larry Tranel, ISU Extension Dairy Field Specialist.  “This seminar has proven itself in assisting lenders and farm financial advisors in helping farmers manage that risk.”
 
The cost of the program is $90 per person by October 17th.   To register, contact Larry Tranel at ISU Extension in Dubuque County at 563-583-6496 or e-mail  tranel@iastate.edu for registration information.
