Sometimes Timing is Everything… An Updated Look at U.S. Farm Sector Financial Conditions
by Brent Gloy
Last week I thought that it would be a good time to look at farm sector financial conditions, particularly some ratios of repayment capacity.

Usually you can count on these updates to be relatively minor. Not this time.
