WASHINGTON — The American Bankers Association is celebrating National Ag Day on March 18 by providing financial tips to the next generation of America’s farmers and ranchers. Unlike established farmers, young and beginning farmers may need to learn the basics of creating business relationships and what goes into making financial decisions.
