FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Agriculture is often at the mercy of the weather, but the industry
is facing storms of another type.
Many parts of the global economy are struggling to regain their footing following
two pandemic years, plus fallout from the Russia-Ukraine conflict. In an industry
driven by lending, Greg Cole has seen firsthand the effects on agriculture.
“Agriculture is currently dealing with several headwinds such as inflation, increasing
interest rates, supply chain disruptions and labor issues,” said Cole, president and
chief executive officer of AgHeritage Farm Credit Services.
Cole will give his perspectives June 10 in his session, “Mid-South Ag Lending and
Market Outlook: Recent Trends and Outlook,” at the Mid-South Agricultural and Environmental
The ninth annual conference will be hosted by the National Agricultural Law Center
on June 10 in-person in Memphis, Tennessee, at the University of Memphis Cecil C.
Humphreys School of Law. Portions of the event will also be broadcast online via livestream.
“The National Agricultural Law Center is pleased to welcome Greg back to the Mid-South
conference,” said Harrison Pittman, director of the National Agricultural Law Center.
“Greg always has valuable insight to share with attendees about where we’ve been,
where we are, and where we’re likely headed in terms of the lending and market outlook
in the southeast United States.”
The conference is scheduled on June 10 with Cole speaking at 8:30 a.m. central, following the keynote address delivered by the Stephen Vaden, member of the International
Trade Court and former general counsel for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Other topics covered include foreign ownership of agricultural lands, ag estate planning
and taxation, and the future of dicamba and other crop protection products. Those interested can register and learn more about the conference and continuing education
