Ag Loans Q&A with Correspondent Lender, Cameron Flowers

Agriculture is a tough industry, but fortunately, so are the growers and ranchers in it. It’s a truism that AgAmerica Lending Correspondent Lender Carmeron Flowers knows all too well, and it has rung especially true in his home state of South Carolina.  Raised on his family’s tobacco and swine farm, Cameron spent his youth in ag fields and accompanying barns, even when he was in school.  During his education at Clemson University where he earned a degree in Food Science, he served as Student Body Vice-President, managed a $2.4 million budget, increased ag funding at the university by 10 percent, and achieved many more accolades.  With a lifetime of agriculture under his belt, he currently runs a small herd of grassfed Angus and understands first-hand the challenges farmers and ranchers face on a daily basis.
