The Importance of a Good Working Relationship with Your Banker

Lee Lubbers and his brother started farming when even established farmers had trouble getting loans. It was during the midst of the ’80’s farm crisis. The brothers scraped and toiled to keep improving their financial position — always paying their expenses before themselves. Even so, their relationship with their local bank deteriorated and they were cut loose and left without financing heading into spring.

Their operation has flourished in part due to a long term, working relationship with an Ag lender who also acted as mentor to Lee. Find out how to replicate their success here!
