NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) RFD-TV’s “Market Day Report” hosts a weekly interview with Roger McEowen, Professor of Agricultural Law and Taxation at the Washburn University School of Law, and an affiliate with the Kansas Farm Bureau.

The topic of this week's interview: When a farmer sells products like crops and livestock, many times those same products are also serving as collateral for a lender’s security interest. The Farm Products Rule is a special rule that governs this scenario. How does this rule work? What are the rights of a buyer when a farmer sells farm products? What revisions have been made to the rule over the years?

Professor McEowen gives his answers to these and other questions in the video above, and further information on this and many other topics is available on his blog.
