Agricultural Lender Seminars Featuring AEDE’s Douglas Southgate and Barry Ward Begin This Week

Oct. 15, 2012
As part of The Ohio State University’s land-grant mission, a series of annual Agricultural Lender Seminars, organized by the Ohio State University Extension, offers the chance for those working in agriculture throughout the State of Ohio the opportunity to interact with experts from OSU on lending issues. The 2012 Seminars have been organized based on feedback regarding sessions in earlier years and to align with high priority topics that lenders are currently facing.
