Dallas Fed Releases Q4 Ag Survey

January 4, 2018 10:21 AM

Each quarter, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas releases its agricultural survey to gauge ag credit conditions in the Eleventh District, known for cattle, cotton and oil.

For a ninth consecutive quarter, demand for ag loans decreased while loan renewals and extensions increased.

According to the Dallas Fed, loan repayments stabilized after falling during the third quarter.

Ranchland and dryland values saw increases this quarter, and irrigated cropland values saw a decrease.

The bankers who responded to the survey are expecting farmland values in the district to trend upward in the next few month.

During December 5 through December 13, 127 bankers responded to the survey.
