    Thursday, May 21, 2015 5:00 PM
    Dan Manternach has good news for farmers concerned about the recent dip in grain prices. He believes we are at the low end of a new price structure, which means prices will certainly rise again. 
  • Traders react to USDA reports

  • Rain slows progress across parts of Indiana

  • Wheat supply grows despite more usage
    Thursday, May 21, 2015 9:00 AM
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture projects winter wheat production up 7 percent from last year and year-end stocks to reach the highest level in five years. Winter wheat production is forecast at 1.47 billion bushels, up from nearly 1.378 from 2014. 
  • Soybean slowdown
    It’s hard for me to complain about the showers we received followed by above-normal temperatures. I would guess that corn is well over 90 percent planted in my area, and the stands look great. Last week’s warm moist weather was just what the doctor ordered for the corn. 
  • Rained out
    Corn planting is done for many. However, I have had a chance since it’s been raining to drive around, and we are far from all planted as far as corn in this area. I have talked to several guys that still have two days of planting corn to go. 
  • Rain welcomed
    All our corn is up, which is also the case throughout our area. The vast majority of the soybean crop has been planted, too, and much of it has emerged. 
  • Planting gains
    The majority of producers has finished corn and is planting some bean acres. There has been a lot of corn emergence this past week with stand looking relatively well unless some low-lying areas end up drowning out from all the rain. 
  • Upgrade and expand our transportation infrastructure
    It is no secret that our nation’s transportation infrastructure is in a state of disrepair. 
  • Celebrate 'Napa Valley of Midwest' with newspaper
    AgriNews is celebrating Hoosier grapes and wine with our “Winery of the Month” series. This series really hits home for me. As a big fan of wine and advocate for local businesses, I couldn’t wait to visit some of Indiana’s finest vineyards. 
  • Less corn now needed to make gallon of ethanol
    U.S. ethanol production reached record levels last year while using fewer bushels of corn to produce a gallon of the fuel. 
  • Soy contest creativity impresses audience
    What were you doing when you were 19 years old? I know I was attending classes at Indiana University in the Ernie Pyle School of Journalism, living in a house with four roommates and playing on a co-ed intramural softball team. I also know what I wasn’t doing: I wasn’t inventing something. 
  • Farmers need to talk about succession plan with family
    Developing a succession plan for a farming operation is not an easy subject for families to discuss. 
  • Catfights, Chipolte and staying connected
    Today, I want to talk about catfights and Chipotle’s anti-GMO message. Real, actual catfights. I have three cats, one cat shy of cat lady status.
