What is Cultivate?
Ag Credit Cultivate Program is designed to help cultivate tomorrow's leaders. This program is designed to assist young, beginning, or small farmers in learning different ways to take their operations to the next level. The meetings will increase attendees' knowledge of ag financing, marketing, production, and more while networking with peers from across Ag Credits 17-county territory.
The program will be one meeting every quarter covering various topics related to agricultural production. During the second year, the Cultivate Council will assist in the planning and execution of the Ag Credit Bi-Annual Cultivate Conference.
