The prices we receive for what we grow. had already declined significantly over the last few years, and now the pandemic is making 2020 even more financially difficult. We have lost markets due to trade wars, tariffs and disease.

If there are any gaps or weak spots in the containing vessel, you get bubbles, jets and fountains of escaping material! The US and global economies have been slowing because of COVID-19 and various measures to slow the spread and limit the fatalities. That’s putting pressure on household budgets, and distorting distribution and demand channels. There is lots of money chasing food and toilet paper, less chasing airline tickets and stadium seats. It is also putting mental pressure on people, with calls to crisis prevention lines and drug overdoses rising. The central banks a. 05/29/2020 16:46
Many of the same principles that apply to making a business successful, apply to operating a successful dairy. One fundamental factor for any business is establishing and maintaining a strong team. While the team behind a dairy may look different than that of a traditional business, they all have the common goal of making their companies profitable. The team behind a dairy consists of individuals focused on improving and maintaining herd health, because a dairy is only successful if its animals are healthy and producing. The individuals who comprise this team must be able to provide the skills and expertise needed to develop practices to maintain healthy animals. The farm manager, veterinarian and nutritionist are typically the individuals 05/29/2020 15:57
Tensions are growing between the U.S. and China. President Donald Trump held a press conference on Friday, May 29, throwing out a laundry list of actions by China – actions the President says needs to stop. The White House accused China of theft and blamed China for its mishandlings of coronavirus in the beginning, including accusations China withheld information. The Trump Administration even announced the decision to terminate the Unite States’ relationship with the World Health Organization because of it. While the President announced actions against China and some Hong Kong leaders on Friday, including suspending the entry of certain foreign nationals from China who are deemed a security risk, the he says all actions are to protect the 05/29/2020 15:39
Finally, the grain markets provide some good news. For the week ending May 29, July corn prices were up nearly 8¢, July soybean prices were up 7.5¢ and July wheat prices were up 12.25¢. “I’ve been advocating patience for the past three weeks in making any major decisions, as soybeans and corn prices have been in a sideways choppy trading affair awaiting more information,” says Jerry Gulke, president of the Gulke Group. May was essentially a choppy and go-nowhere month, he explains. If you look at the soybean price chart below, you’ll see prices ended the month no better than where the month started. “Corn has been positive for quite a while, but it hasn't gone anywhere,” he adds. June is a critical month for crop production and price direct. 05/29/2020 11:52
Your federal government spent $22 million in 2018 on a development grant to subsidize the production of Sjenica cheese – a unique creamy white cheese produced only in the rural highlands of southwest Serbia. Yes, Serbia, the landlocked country of 7 million people in southwestern Europe. We know about Uncle Sam subsidizing Sjenica cheese because of Kentucky Senator Rand Paul’s “Waste Report,” an annual summary he produces as part of an ongoing project for the Subcommittee on Federal Spending Oversight and Emergency Management. At the time the Waste Report was published, the United States was sitting on a 1.4 billion-pound cheese surplus – largely created by increasing dairy production and a decline in consumption of milk and cheese.

Recent reports from Fortune magazine state plaintiff attorneys received a verbal agreement from Bayer for a $10 billion settlement for 85,000 lawsuits in relation to glyphosate. The lawsuits claim the weed killer caused non-Hodgkin lymphoma. “Given that even a summary of the settlement terms has not yet been released by Bayer or the plaintiffs’ attorneys, it is important to be circumspect in commenting on the leaked terms of the Bayer deal, which lack real detail. Although it is likely that individual recoveries are tiered, based on varying case factors, little can be said about what this means for the thousands of plaintiffs whose claims may be at stake without more information,” says Robert King a partner with Korein Tillery, LLC.

There is certainly no shortage of proverbs that instruct us to be patient. That could speak to the fact that we as a species are not very good at that, particularly in this era of instantaneous reward. "You mean I cannot have it delivered today?" We have heard them all before; Patience is a virtue, to everything there is a season, a penny saved is a penny earned, and of course, good things come to those who wait. In fact, I suspect that most of us have used such pithy advice on more than one occasion, undoubtedly, to temper an anxious child or possibly co-worker. Regardless, as with all such sayings that have stood the test of time, there is also an element of truth, and that appears to have been borne out by the corn market's performance y. 05/29/2020 10:30

Think about it. Birthdays without your friends are like chips without salsa. It’s ok, but it’s far less rewarding to eat chips alone. Lately, I’ve been reminded of how friendships, like salsa, make life’s moments worth celebrating. Perhaps I’ve got birthdays on the mind because we celebrated a birthday every few weeks in this house during our shelter-in-place order in Illinois. A Zoom gathering wasn’t quite the same as the inflatable archery party we threw for our son last year. Does life really get better than shooting inflatable bows and arrows at each other when you’re 11? As I reflect on the last few months, I can’t help but think how “social distancing” has taken away so many of the joys in my life, most notably, opportunities to conne. 05/29/2020 06:39

The number of market-ready cattle backlogged in feedyards may not be as large as previous estimates. While any tally of cattle currently waiting on available shackle space is – at best – an estimate, an analysis of 2020 Cattle on Feed and slaughter data from USDA suggests industry estimates of 1 million cattle backlogged may be overstated by as much as 50%. “After a closer analysis of the flow of cattle through feedlots from Cattle on Feed reports, steer and heifer slaughter, and packing plant capacity utilization, I believe the 1 million head backlog figure is too large,” says Sterling Marketing president John Nalivka, Vale, Ore. “Instead, the backlog in feedlots from the April slowdown is probably closer to 400,000 to 550,000 head.”In de.
