With Nathan Kauffman, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City — Omaha Branch Executive, Vice President, and Economist.
Offered since 2019, the quarterly webinars address common management issues for Nebraska landowners, agricultural operators and related stakeholders interested in the latest insight on trends in real estate, managing agricultural land and solutions for addressing challenges in the upcoming growing season.
Economic conditions in agriculture have rebounded dramatically the past two years alongside a sharp recovery in broader economic conditions. Agricultural commodity prices have remained high, farmland values have set new records, and farm financial conditions are considerably stronger than before the pandemic. While factors specific to the pandemic may continue to affect economic conditions to varying degrees, the path forward for agriculture will depend significantly on these broader economic forces. This session will discuss how these forces are likely to shape the outlook for agriculture in the year ahead.
