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 operation.

December corn ended up 1 1/4 cents at $3.61 Wednesday, a quiet day of
trading that saw some rain reach South Dakota and some of the drier areas of
the southern Plains. More rain is expected in the north-central and eastern
Corn Belt the next seven days, but only light amounts for the dry corner of the
southwestern Corn Belt. Similarly, most of the Corn Belt will enjoy more
moderate temperatures during the next five days, while triple-digit
temperatures and high 90s remain common in the southwestern Plains. Given the
current outlook for the rest of July, corn crop ratings are likely to slip
lower, but the major growing areas should continue to do well. The U.S. Energy
Department said last week's ethanol production increased from 1.033 to 1.064
million barrels per day while ethanol inventory dropped from 22.4 to 21.8
million barrels. Ethanol continues to provide corn consistent demand support
while actual U.S. corn exports are down 4% from a year ago. For now, the trend
remains down for December corn. DTN's National Corn Index closed at $3.15
Tuesday, up from its lowest price in 2018 and 31 cents below the September
contract. In outside markets, the September U.S. dollar index is up 0.10 after
the Federal Reserve's Beige Book said 10 of the 12 Fed districts showed
moderate or modest growth. August cattle closed up $2.52, a new three-month
high with livestock stressed by hot temperatures in the southern Plains.
