Out of the $23.5 billion earmarked for agriculture in the latest coronavirus relief package, “I think at least $9 billion will be going to livestock producers,” said Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts on Wednesday. During a interview, the Kansas Republican also said that Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue would disburse coronavirus funds before deciding if a new round of trade war payments is needed. “Our cattle feeders have been hit very hard,” said Roberts. Futures prices for major commodities, including corn, soybeans, wheat, cattle, and hogs, fell sharply as the coronavirus spread worldwide. Wheat has recovered somewhat. Meanwhile, a group of small-farm advocates wrote Perdue to “urge you to ensure that farmers and ranchers who hav.

The milk cooperative Dairy Farmers of America has entered into an agreement to buy most of milk processor Dean Foods’ assets as part of the latter’s bankruptcy proceedings. The $433 million deal for 44 of Dean’s facilities was Tuesday despite earlier indications that the two parties may have been walking away from a deal. If the merger is approved, DFA will be both the largest milk supplier and the largest milk processor in the country. “This is a merger that is going to be harmful to consumers and to dairy farmers,” said Peter Carstensen, an emeritus law professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a former antitrust attorney at the Department of Justice. “Consumers in some regions of the country … are very, very likely to face hig.

Spooked by the China-U.S. trade war, American farmers say they will plant so much corn that production could near 16 billion bushels for the first time. “We’ll be swimming in corn,” said economist Todd Hubbs of the University of Illinois. Growers also could reap the fourth-largest soybean crop on record as plantings of the two dozen principal U.S. crops rebound from the rainiest spring in a quarter century in 2019, when a record 19.6 million acres went unsown. Mammoth corn and soybean harvests would depress market prices into fall 2021 and possibly beyond. Some 319 million acres will be planted to the principal crops, from corn, soybeans, and wheat to lentils and chickpeas, this year — up 5% from last year, according to USDA estimates relea.

Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) has been a scourge to soybean farmers for several decades. The good news is soybean varieties that resist SCN have been a way for farmers to manage it. The bad news is SCN is resisting these varieties, since 95% of them share the same resistance source—PI 88788. Fortunately, new sources of resistance are on the way, as the following story by The SCN Coalition shows.Its goal is to increase soybean farmers’ profit potential and realize higher yields. Partners in The SCN Coalition include university scientists from 28 states and Ontario, grower checkoff organizations including the North Central Soybean Research Program, United Soybean Board and several state soybean promotion boards, and corporate partners including.

INDIANOLA, Iowa -- The gloom and doom of the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to keep uncertainty in the agricultural finance sector at a high level. Nick Paulson, University of Illinois farmdoc expert says that the COVID-19 coronavirus is compounding problems in the already tough ag economy. With the U.S. jobless claims jumping to 3.283 million, from last week's U.S. data, that kind of economic activity is not helping sentiment. In Central Illinois alone, grain farmers are seeing an erosion of liquidity and solvency (debt-to-asset ratio), according to Paulson. From 2003 to 2012, the amount of leverage that central Illinois farmers held trended downward. Since then farmers have been adding leverage and it continues, this year, the farmdoc exp.

Now that we are in an economic recession, how do we keep that from spiraling into a depression similar to the 1930s? Nouriel Roubini, professor of economics at New York University (NYU) Stern School of Business, is a leading expert on risk and global economic policy and a consultant to many of the largest financial institutions in the world.

The said on Thursday that it had accepted for entry 9 of every 10 acres offered in the recently completed “general” signup, for a total of 3.4 million acres — 2 million fewer acres than will leave the reserve this fall. “It does seem to show that the rental rate caps matter,” said Pat Westhoff, director of the FAPRI think tank at the University of Missouri.

Wholesale beef prices have jumped to record levels, as shoppers stockpile meat in response to the global coronavirus pandemic. But this run on beef isn’t helping cattle ranchers. On the contrary, cattle prices have plummeted since January, putting many ranchers on the brink of collapse. “It’s never been worse. The futures market is crashing … and box beef prices are skyrocketing. It’s nuts,” says rancher Mike Callicrate of St. Francis, Kansas. Callicrate and other ranchers say this illogical price collapse reflects meatpackers’ monopoly power to set cattle prices. Before this shock, the top four beef packers already faced litigation and a Department of Agriculture investigation for alleged collusion and price-fixing. Lawmakers from both par.
