Recent changes at Rural Bank and Rural Finance

Kerry Schultz

Last week we had Greg Kuchel and Luke Riley from Rural Bank come in to the office to have a chat with us about the changes that have occurred over the past few years which now see Rural Bank and Rural Finance now owned 100% by Bendigo and Adelaide Bank.

Along with this they also made me aware of some of the resources/community involvement they have.

Rural Bank provides a resource they call Ag Answers which can be subscribed to or viewed on their website without being a subscriber.

It provides research and analysis into commodities, farmland values, farm business performance and topical agricultural issues.

Ag Answers provides monthly updates for weather – hosted by Jane Bunn!! Also monthly updates for Cropping, Dairy, Livestock and Wool. Along with other updates and reports as and when they see the industry needs them. It is definitely worth checking it out.

We appreciate Greg and Luke coming to talk to us.
