2019 Agriculture Lenders School

June 3 @ 8:00 am - June 7 @ 12:00 pm

The school’s five-day curriculum was developed to provide in-depth training in agricultural finance for lenders seeking to make good loan decisions in today’s marketplace.

Early career lenders (zero to five years experience) or experienced lenders who are assuming new agricultural loan responsibilities are the intended audience for this school.

Since the school was founded in 2000, it has successfully trained more than 500 agricultural lenders from a variety of U.S. states. Participants typically work in banks, farm credit associations, agribusinesses, state agencies and finance companies.

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.


  • Introduction to Agricultural Financial Statements
  • Keys to Agricultural Credit Analysis
  • Financial Benchmarks and Comparative Data
  • Communicating with Farmer Clients
  • Practical Servicing Issues Specific to Agriculture
  • Emerging Issues in Agricultural Finance
  • Legal Review and Lien Documentation
  • Managing Agricultural Risks
  • Completing the Agricultural Loan

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