A new year has dawned and it has the makings of an extraordinary challenge. A new Farm Bill is expected very soon that will DRAMATICALLY change federal supports. Unfortunately, this comes after many decisions were made for the coming year. Commodity prices for corn and peanuts continue to be weaker than we need to be profitable without exceptional yields. Cotton is an unknown due to the Chinese stocks that continue to impact any supply and demand forecasting. Cattle values appear to be the one bright area for the immediate future. At the least, this should be an interesting year requiring good management decisions and some help from the weather.
We have scheduled a Cotton/Soybean/Peanut production meeting for February 27th that will provide a significant amount of supporting information to assist you in your planning for the crop year. For those gardening enthusiasts; Carole has scheduled a series of garden seminars in February that will address many of the questions you may have concerning all aspects of successful vegetable and fruit production. Stay tuned for more information on these critical education programs.
