Producer Education & Resources


Producer Education & Resources

The ag industry may look a lot different now compared to what it was in your younger years of growing up on the family farm, or even when you began your own operation. Continuing education for producers can help you keep up with the changes taking place in the ag economy, farm technology, and more — ensuring your operation runs as smoothly and as profitably as possible.

Because nearly all of our Ag Bankers are producers themselves, they’re knowledgeable on the topics impacting producers today, including farm financials and projections, risk management, marketing, and insurance. From large-scale events to small group sessions, our Ag Banking team is happy to provide area producers with education opportunities personalized to their needs.
