The agricultural economic landscape is now in a transition phase. The great commodity super cycle that has bestowed prosperity and wealth – particularly on the grain industry – appears to be waning. This has contributed to a resurgence of livestock and other sectors of the agricultural industry. What are the global and domestic economic indicators that can be monitored from the boardroom to the frontline in working with your agricultural and small business customers and portfolios? Is there potential for a land value correction or will land continue to appreciate? Interest rates, the health of the domestic economy, and major trends in agriculture will impact the prosperity and sustainability of your customers and your business.

What financial and business management metrics will be important in this transition? How can you forge stronger relationships with customers? What are key practices that your producers need to strategize and execute to be in a position to survive and succeed during these turbulent times? Join us to learn the answers to these questions.
