SDSU Extension will host an ag lender conference on October 15 at 8 AM MDT in Rapid City at the West River Ag Center (1905 Plaza Blvd.).

Ag lenders value up-to-date and timely market, financial, and production information. Having this knowledge helps them better assist clients regardless of the situation. Acquiring this knowledge takes time and effort, but the pay-off is having a solid working relationship with clients. This one-day conference will focus on SD land values, cash rent trends, Calf Backgrounding costs, Beef feedlot issues, Crop costs/SD Farm’s Financial Trends, Grain Market Analysis & Outlook, Macroeconomic Analysis, and Livestock Market Outlooks and Analysis. A discussion session will be included in each day’s conference wherein educational program needs, as they relate to producers and lenders, will be discussed. Early registration fee – $75.00 until October 2, $100 for registrations after.
