The Kansas State University Agricultural Lenders Conference will be held in Garden City, Kan. on Oct. 3 and in Manhattan, Kan. on Oct. 10. The same program will be offered at each location. “Holding the conference at two locations allows attendees to choose the location and date most convenient to them,” said conference coordinator Rich Llewelyn.
