(b) Provides the name of the secured party or a representative of the secured party; and
(c) Indicates the collateral covered by the financing statement.
(2) Except as otherwise provided in s. 679.5011(2), to be sufficient, a financing statement that covers as-extracted collateral or timber to be cut, or that is filed as a fixture filing and covers goods that are or are to become fixtures, must comply with the requirements of subsection (1) and also:
(a) Indicate that it covers this type of collateral;

(3) A record of a mortgage satisfying the requirements of chapter 697 is effective, from the date of recording, as a financing statement filed as a fixture filing or as a financing statement covering as-extracted collateral or timber to be cut only if:
(a) The record of a mortgage indicates the goods or accounts that it covers;
(b) The goods are or are to become fixtures related to the real property described in the record of a mortgage or the collateral is related to the real property described in the mortgage and is as-extracted collateral or timber to be cut;
(c) The record of a mortgage satisfies the requirements for a financing statement in this section, although:
1. The record of a mortgage need not indicate that it is to be filed in the real property records; and
2. The record of a mortgage sufficiently provides the name of a debtor who is an individual if it provides the individual name of the debtor or the surname and first personal name of the debtor, even if the debtor is an individual to whom s. 679.5031(1)(d) or (e) applies; and
(d) The record of a mortgage is recorded as required by chapter 697.
