MANAGING YOUR FARM AND RANCH ASSETS
We are based in the heartland of the Midwest and have decades of experience to help you manage farm and ranch properties of almost every kind. Whether you are involved in crop or livestock operations, we have a dedicated staff with broad-based experience to help prudently and productively oversee the management of your holdings. We have partnered with one of the largest independent farm management companies in the U.S. to provide the normal complement of farm management services, as well as assistance with ancillary issues such as: improved marketing techniques, efficient use of government farm programs, asset conservation, alternative energy/wind farm leasing, etc., to bring the best out of your acreage. If you so desire, we have the flexibility to engage alternative managers at your discretion as well.
Like any investment, agriculture and livestock holdings should fit into your overall goals for your family’s financial plan. Our staff handles your properties in a coordinated fashion commensurate with your needs and circumstances, providing practical solutions to help optimize your overall wealth.
