Ag Lending School in Bismarck

Posted: Updated:
 Bankers are heading back to school.

Nearly 30 bankers are taking part in the I-C-B-N-D Ag Lending School.

The 2 year banking school helps ag lenders to further educate themselves which in turn helps our farmers. 

Ag credit, finance, farm management and marketing are a few of the subjects. 

Experienced bankers, consultants and college professors are the instructors. 

(David Ludwig / ICBND Vice President) We recognize the need for training ag lenders in the state. there is a shortage, and this was a way of training younger people, or providing more education for older people needing a refresher. 

(Joe Roline/ Ag Lender) There are a lot of variables that are out of your control. You have to deal with weather, you have to deal with the market prices whether it be cattle, crops, commodities, and all of that is basically out of your control. You can do your research, you can take your precautions, but at the end of the day, anything can happen. Take the necessary steps to protect you, the bank and the borrower too, you have to look out for their best interests."


The Ag Lending School runs through Friday on the BSC Campus.
