What the workshop is about?
Liens (Hawbaker) – Nebraska’s statutory agricultural liens, from the producer’s perspective: What are they? How do they work? These are liens that give creditors rights in certain property, such as crops, feed and livestock, to secure payment of obligations for goods or services, such as seed, fertilizer, ag chemicals, petroleum products, veterinary assistance, cattle care, harvest work and machine repair. The discussion will focus on identifying the liens and understanding how they work from the producer’s perspective.
Loans (Goeller) – The presentation will provide producers with an inside look at “What your lender is looking for.” The impact of Collateral, Cash Flow, Credit Score, Character and Trends on loan applications. A brief overview of Balance Sheets, Trend Sheets and Ratio Analysis will also be included.
Leases (Vyhnalek) – The importance of lease communications between the landlord and tenant and useful lease provisions will be discussed, along with highlights of current lease rates and trends in Nebraska.
