Responsibilities at FNC:
I provide professional management of agricultural assets for absentee landowners in western and north central Illinois.
Meeting owner goals and objectives for their farms, while providing peace of mind, is our purpose at Farmers National Company.
These goals and objectives often involve estate settlements, generational transfers, and the sale of the farm in some cases.
Owner objectives are as unique as their properties. Typical goals include implementing best conservation and stewardship practices; improving productivity; increasing net income and returns on investment; maintaining and improving the asset's market value; improving lease terms and relationships with highly qualified farm operators; and minimizing liabilities with sound risk management strategies.
