Virtual Ag Lenders Seminar Set for November 10
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/16/2020

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Siouxland and Tri-State Agricultural Lenders Seminars have been combined into one virtual seminar set for November 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Lenders who serve agricultural clients--especially those who work with dairy producers across the Upper Midwest--are encouraged to attend, as the seminar will focus on market outlooks for livestock, grains and dairy, plus include a focus on exports and trade issues.

The agenda this year features well-known presenters who are leading the national discussion in their topic area, noted Fred Hall and Larry Tranel, dairy specialists with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.

The list of nationally recognized presenters includes:

- Mike North – president of Commodity Risk Management Group, Platteville; presenting on marketing opportunities from a global view.

- Wendong Zhang, assistant professor in economics and extension economist with Iowa State University; presenting on issues of trade with China.

- Mark Stephenson, director of Dairy Policy Analysis, University of Wisconsin, Madison; presenting a dairy market update.

- Chad Hart, professor in economics and extension grain markets specialist at Iowa State University; presenting a land, livestock and crop market update.

“These seminars have proven valuable to lenders and financial advisers across the Upper Midwest as a local source for current information which they can use as they help producers manage risk,” Hall said.

The registration fee has been reduced to $50 per person.
