CROP PRODUCTION


Planting season is now here and your seed is ready to go!  You can protect yield this season by treating your soybeans with a  fungicide, insecticide, and white mold suppresser, either prior to pickup or delivery in Edna or Lester or even on the farm with our mobile seed treater.

SWINE PRODUCTION

Let us show you how you can get the average price for the year and process your own soybeans into "EXPRESS SOYBEAN MEAL", Our mechanical process of extrusion is superior to conventional solvent extracted soybean meal due to the process in which it is manufactured gives it a higher nutrient availability.  This value allows you to feed what you already raise in the same manner you feed your own corn today!  2-4% increase in both feed efficiency (8-16 lbs. of feed per pig) and improved rate of gain (5-8 lbs. heavier pig in the same amount of days!) along with ease of grain marketing can add value and additional savings to your feeding operation.

DTN Closing Corn Comments
Darin Newsom
Darin Newsom
DTN Sr Analyst
July corn ended down 2 3/4 cents Friday, but was up the same amount on the week as all the talk of weather threats and U.S. planting concerns had little impact on prices. Friday's weather map showed precipitation from Colorado to Ohio with snow west of central Iowa. Plenty of precipitation is in store for the Corn Belt this weekend with flooding concerns from eastern Oklahoma into Illinois and chances for snow in the southwestern Plains. The Dakotas will be drier, but temperatures are still cold for planting. Meanwhile down south, DTN's seven-day forecast is mostly dry and favorable for corn harvest in Argentina, now estimated at 26% complete by Buenos Aires Cereal Exchange. With the big increase in South American corn production expected this year, July corn remains under bearish pressure in a sideways range with prices near support at $3.61 3/4. DTN's National Corn Index closed at $3.28 Thursday, priced 41 cents below the July contract and within a sideways range. In outside markets, the June U.S. dollar index is down 0.11 after the U.S. Commerce Department reported U.S. real GDP up 1.9% in the first quarter from a year ago, less than was expected. Congress approved moving the government shutdown deadline to next Friday and now the measure needs the President's approval.
