Benchmark Value Update

Benchmark Value Update

This year’s update appears to be, when compared to recent years, a return to more healthy increases with certain areas experiencing slightly more increase in value. Farm Credit Midsouth uses five benchmarks to estimate changes in land values from year to year. Land values were steadily increasing for several years in Eastern Arkansas. In 2015 land values began stabilizing and slightly declining in 2018.

In Step With Patrick H. Lenderman

Farm Credit Midsouth’s Patrick H. Lenderman wears a lot of hats as he juggles the responsibilities that come with being vice president and branch manager of both the Corning and Paragould branches. So, it really should come as no surprise to find out he also works on one of his passions on the side as well. An avid fisherman and hunter, Patrick co-founded Timber Mallard Duck Calls with his father, the late Hulen Lenderman in 1995, a custom call company specializing in acrylic and wooden duck calls.
