BROOKINGS, S.D. – Agriculture lenders are invited to attend one of three Ag Lender Conferences hosted by SDSU Extension throughout the month of October in Sioux Falls, Watertown and Rapid City.

“SDSU Extension understands the relationship agriculture producers have with their lender and its impact on the success of their operations,” said Jack Davis, SDSU Extension Crops Business Management Field Specialist. “By providing lenders timely market, financial and production information, they are better able to assist agriculture producers.” 
Topics covered during the one-day conference include:
  1. South Dakota land values and cash rent trends;
  2. Calf backgrounding costs;
  3. Crop cost and grain market analysis and commodity market outlook,;
  4. Macroeconomic analysis; 
  5. Livestock market outlook and analysis; and 
  6. Production technology update. 
“Production agriculture provides yearly challenges,” Davis said. “Through these conferences, we are able to update lenders on the economic drivers impacting their clients. Through this effort we provide them with information and tools they can use to combat those challenges.”
