Profit Outlook for 2016 Still Negative

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Profit Outlook for 2016 Still Negative Profit Outlook for 2016 Still Negative By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 17, 2016 Facebook Twitter SHARE A report to the Farm Credit Administration shows an overall negative profit outlook for 2016. The Farm Credit board received a report on the 2016 profit outlook last week and found the outlook is negative for corn and wheat and is near the break-even point for soybeans. The forecast was based on data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and university estimates of production costs. Farm Credit says large supplies are pushing down farm prices for corn and wheat, while soybean prices are expected to be near last year’s average because of a less bearish global stock situation. For the farmer’s bottom line, a modest reduction in production costs is offsetting some of the price-depressing effects.Still, Farm Credit says many producers will need to make adjustments by controlling their input costs, selling crops when pricing opportunities arise and cutting household living expenses. That message falls in line with similar comments made throughout the year regarding the farm economy.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleIndiana Harvesting Pace Moving Ahead of Last Year Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

We do not want other families to go through the pain and suffering we have had to endure.“The current law intends to protect girls.
