A model of farm financial adjustment is developed to provide empirical estimates of the transition needed to achieve more stable asset and debt distributions in agriculture. The collective effect of microeconomic responses over time are used to provide insights into potential population dynamics in response to farm financial stress. Several macroeconomic scenarios are simulated and several financial stress alleviation policies are analyzed.
