Re: "Despite Strength, Ag Lenders Face Heightened Reg Scrutiny" In 2008, I told all of our farm borrowers that my dad sold corn for $3.12 in August, 1975. By August, 1977, the price of corn below $1.60. Of course prices are going in the tank. That is not the time to sell. You have to sell well before or after those price drops.
