Agribusiness Economic Outlook and Succession Planning

May 12, 2016
9:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Please join us in welcoming leaders of Kansas State University’s Department of Agricultural Economics to present the results of their Agricultural Lender Survey for spring 2016. The discussion will include the current and projected state of five key areas: farm loan interest rates, spread over cost of funds, farm loan volumes, nonperforming loan volumes and agricultural land values.

After the K-State report, Husch Blackwell Partner Christine DeMarea will address family farm succession planning, which is often driven by the economic outlook. When should planning begin? What are the legal, tax and other factors to consider? How should a succession plan be developed?
