The 29th Annual Tri-State Agriculture Lender’s Seminar will be held on Thursday, October 26th at the Best Western Plus Hotel in Dubuque, Iowa from 9:45 am – 3:00 pm. This year’s focus is on market outlooks for livestock, grains and dairy along with the issues of dairy finances, commodity cycles, land prices and other farm economy issues.

“Price risk management continues to be the major variable for profitability in many commodity enterprises. Understanding the market and risk is a necessary part of farm management assistance for agricultural lenders as well”, says Larry Tranel, ISU Extension Dairy Field Specialist. ” This seminar has proven itself in assisting lenders and farm financial advisors in helping farmers manage that risk.”

The cost of the program is $100 per person by October 16th. To register, contact Larry Tranel at ISU Extension in Dubuque County at 563-583-6496 or e-mail for registration information.
