Presenting current farm financial issues in large group settings can prove challenging. Current constraints such as working capital, liquidity, cash flow management and various crop risk management marketing strategies still need to be addressed. In the winter of 2015-16 more than 5,000 farmers attended 35 different meetings in 4 western Corn Belt states where three different case studies were featured.
Farm Credit Services of America´s senior credit team provided the farm financial backgrounds and solutions while Iowa State University Extension specialists compiled the analysis and provided the training. These case studies were the highlight of a 90-minute "Solutions for Success" message. An end-of-meeting survey results were compiled to reflect the impact of these case studies and related topics regarding farm finances, crop risk management and marketing.
