On Navigating Business in the Age of Change
Nov 13, 2017

In farming, change is inevitable. From seasonal weather changes to fluctuating commodity prices and new on-farm technology advancements – it can be more than a little overwhelming.
Change is vital to our industry’s ability to continue to nourish a growing and increasingly complex world. Change drives innovation, experimentation and progress. As a financial cooperative dedicated to securing the future of rural communities and agriculture, Farm Credit Mid-America works side-by-side with customers to navigate the cyclical nature of agriculture. Our more than one hundred years of experience has taught us to ride the waves of change rather than fighting it by leveraging knowledge and experience to manage risk in the face of uncertainty.
This week we are hosting our second Insights Conference, which is designed to provide a snapshot of the changes in economics, technology, labor and regulation that are expected to influence agricultural businesses in the next decade. By bringing together national thought leaders from inside and outside agriculture to address these topics, we hope to provide producers with the information and high-level perspectives that will prepare them to manage change.
The dedication and determination we see in our customers to manage challenges with the long game in mind is one of the many reasons that we are optimistic about the future of agriculture. We are also energized by the enthusiasm and determination we see in the next generation of farmers preparing to assume responsibility for feeding the world.
We look forward to navigating business in the age of change with you.
