Using responses from 228 banks, the Kansas City Fed presented its survey of Agricultural Credit Conditions covering the first quarter of 2014. A selection of observations by some of these bankers follows:

Crop income will show a modest deterioration based on lower commodity prices while livestock will show a significant
improvement with prices at an all-time high. — Southeast Nebraska

“Lower feed costs are adding to livestock profitability.” — Western Nebraska

Cattle prices have been strong for cow/calf operations.” — Central Oklahoma

“The decline in corn price is the primary reason for the decline in working capital.” — Northwest Kansas

“For the first time in four years, customers are holding grain looking for a better price.” — Eastern Nebraska

Significant decrease in commodity prices and changes in government program payments will have an impact on repayment rates. — Southwest Kansas
