Lending to Farmers

AgLending is business lending, with a twist. Our online modules include AgLending examples throughout. And we created a Schedule F module just for AgLenders.

In the virtual class, AgLenders choose a comprehensive case study that uses farm tax returns covering two operations and the owner/guarantors. We include income sources and cyclical factors that are unique to farming.

Join other lending professionals who work in AgLending and learn from an instructor who understands it.

What Aglenders say

I rated the virtual training a 10! The course was full of information that was very valuable, easy to follow and right on target for my needs. Thank you for this learning experience!

I liked the very easy to follow modules along with the ability to work at my own pace.

Wesley Dipprey

Credit Officer, AgTexas Farm Credit Services


I recommend this course to anyone who has been working in credit at least six months. I liked the ability to re-watch the sessions as many times as I wanted and was able to pause and take notes at my own pace. This led to better retention.

Jacob Bingham

Farm Credit West


Linda does a good job of teaching a very difficult and complicated subject, with many answers being ‘it depends’. Becoming familiar with each tax form is key. The course and your worksheets do just that. I liked the virtual training.
