The 32nd Annual Tri-State Agriculture Lender’s Seminar will be held on Wednesday, October 24th at the Best Western Plus Hotel, 3100 Dodge Street, Dubuque, Iowa, from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm. This year’s focus is on market outlooks for livestock, grains and dairy along with the issues of the farm bill, farm stress and the Ag Decision-Maker tool.

“Price risk management continues to be the major variable for profitability in many commodity enterprises. Understanding the ag markets is a necessary part of lender portfolio management”, 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 14th. To register, contact Larry Tranel at ISU Extension in Dubuque County at 563-583-6496 or e-mail for registration information.
