Farm Credit Services of America (FCSAmerica) and Frontier Farm Credit are co-sponsoring a webinar series, Two Economists and a Lender. Our September installment featured Agriculture Economic Insights (AEI) co-founders David Widmar and Brent Gloy and Tom Hinkeldey, financial services officer. The webinar recording from September 22 is available.
