Jim Woster kicks off this week’s Corn Comments with a reminder of the pheasant opener this coming Saturday. Good luck to all of the hunters, stay safe out there.
Did you know that corn prices are less than half of what they were a year ago? Funny how those who blamed so many things including rising food prices on higher than average corn prices, seemed to have changed their tune as food prices continue to climb and the price of corn has crashed.
Mark your calendars – The annual fall Growing On meetings co-hosted by Farm Credit Services and South Dakota Corn are just around the corner. Iowa State University Extension’s Steven Johnson returns with information on the new farm bill, marketing and risk management options. Events will take place in Aberdeen, Watertown, Huron, Mitchell, Brookings, Yankton and Sioux Falls. For more information on times and event locations, click here.
And don’t forget to mark January 17th, 2015 as the South Dakota Corn Growers will hold their annual meeting in Sioux Falls at the Convention Center. This year will include another great lineup of speakers and evening entertainment.
