Thousands of agricultural lenders have attended this premier workshop from all segments of the agricultural finance industry. This comprehensive course was developed by Centrec Consulting Group, LLC of Savoy, Illinois, a recognized leader in the development and delivery of training programs for agricultural lenders. Designed to meet the needs of today’s agricultural lender, it focuses on the analysis and interpretation of historical and projected farm and ranch financial statements–the critical components of the credit analysis process that continue to frustrate even the most experienced lenders. Although lectures are an important part of the course, participants spend the majority of their time analyzing case studies and participating in small group discussions with their colleagues and experienced faculty.
