Bankers Assoc: More optimism in farm country

15 hours ago

The president of the North Dakota Bankers Association believes there is reason for optimism in farm country.

"First off, USDA is forecasting a rise of over 20 percent in net farm income, compared to 2019," Rick Clayburgh said in an interview. "Certainly that's a positive sign as we're moving from 2020 into 2021."

Clayburgh said some of that was due to government support, because of COVID-19, lower commodity prices, and the trade dispute with China.

"The good sign is, we're seeing a rebound in some of our prices," Clayburgh said.
