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
Corn spent much of the day bouncing back and forth across unchanged before finally closing lower on spillover selling from soybeans. With little fresh news to provide direction, traders focused on weather forecasts that continue to call for chances of rains across the U.S. Midwest and cooler temperatures this coming weekend. Nothing significant has happened to charts this week with futures (both old-crop and new-crop) and futures spreads sitting in sideways trends. The overnight session should see ongoing influence of late-day weather maps.
