Slight Uptick in New Ag Economy Barometer

first_img By Andy Eubank – Nov 13, 2017 Facebook Twitter Slight Uptick in New Ag Economy Barometer SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Slight Uptick in New Ag Economy Barometer Previous articleBower Trading Market Strategy Report: Putting the USDA Behind UsNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 13, 2017 Andy Eubank October-17-Barometer-up-slightlyThe Purdue University/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer has risen slightly in the newest survey of 400 U.S. ag producers. The October barometer is up 3 points to 135, the third highest reading since they started collecting data two years ago.There are two sub-indices that determine the overall ranking, and one of those, the Index of Current Conditions declined just a bit. Purdue’s David Widmar says that could have been related to a relatively tough harvest across the Corn Belt.“Some states are well behind,” he told HAT. “I also think that producers sort of have this unknown at the moment. We have a pretty large crop out there. Some yields are still unknown and commodity prices have sort of been baked in for a large U.S. crop, so there’s a disconnect about what farmers know about their specific operation, and then what the USDA and the markets already know about the size of the U.S. crop.”The Index of Future Expectations rose seven points in October, helping drive the overall number higher. Widmar says new producers are surveyed each month to create the ag barometer.“What doesn’t change and is the static component is the type of operations that we’re surveying, so on a regular basis or every month, 53% of our 400 are corn and soybean producers. About 17% are wheat producers. Each of those slices of the pie is representative of what USDA says is out there across the country for corn, wheat, soybeans, cotton, beef cattle, dairy cattle and hog producers.”Each quarter, producers are asked their expectations for crop prices in the coming year. Compared to July, fewer producers expect higher corn, soybean and wheat prices in the next 12 months. However, fewer producers also expect crop prices to decline over the next year.For the second year in a row, producers were asked whether they plan to make management changes, such as lowering fertilizer or seeding rates, or adjusting their hybrid or variety packages for the upcoming cropping season. The share planning reductions in seeding rates and changes to their hybrid or variety choices for 2018 changed little from last October with 19 percent expecting lower seeding rates and 35 percent planning to adjust seed variety or hybrid packages. But the percentage of producers planning to reduce fertilizer usage in 2018 was noticeably smaller. Just one-third of respondents said they plan to reduce fertilizer rates in 2018, down from 46 percent a year ago.“One possible reason for the smaller share of producers planning to reduce fertilizer rates in 2018 is prices,” said James Mintert, director of Purdue’s Center for Commercial Agriculture and principal investigator on the barometer project. “Fertilizer prices, particularly for anhydrous ammonia, are lower than a year ago. For example, recent price quotes for anhydrous ammonia were 20 percent lower than a year ago, with other crop nutrient prices exhibiting smaller price declines.”For the first time, producers were asked about their expectations for farmland rental expenses in 2018. An overwhelming 80 percent of respondents said that they expect farmland rental rates to be unchanged in 2018 compared to 2017. The remaining 20 percent of respondents were split equally between those expecting rental rates to be higher and those expecting lower rates in 2018.The full October report includes more information about producer sentiment toward farm machinery prices and overall farm expenses, as well as insights from the quarterly Agricultural Thought-Leader Survey.

Meghan McCain honors slain ISIS hostage following al-Baghdadi death

first_imgMueller Family(NEW YORK) — “The View” co-host Meghan McCain took a moment on Monday to honor slain humanitarian worker and ISIS hostage Kayla Mueller during a discussion on the show about the U.S. special operations raid in Syria over the weekend that led to the death of ISIS leader and founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.Mueller was a Doctors Without Borders volunteer and Arizona native who was kidnapped by ISIS on Aug. 3, 2013, after she crossed into Syrian border for a humanitarian mission. U.S. officials confirmed that she died in February 2015 while in ISIS custody.President Donald Trump mentioned Mueller during his announcement of al-Baghdadi’s death on Sunday, calling her a “beautiful young woman” who died while trying to “help people.”McCain honored Mueller’s sacrifices on Monday.“I want to talk about Kayla Mueller who was a woman from Prescott, Arizona, who was a Doctors Without Borders volunteer who was taken by al-Baghdadi, tortured, kept in solitary confinement, raped over and over and over again,” McCain said.“[She] had the opportunity to leave and didn’t, and [therefore] saved other women,” she added. “She’s a very big name, I think, nationally, and in Arizona in particular, and I think today we honor her. We honor her family.”Mueller’s parents, Marsha and Carl Mueller said in an interview on Sunday that they once traveled to Irbil, Syria, where they met Umm Sayyaf, the wife of ISIS militant Abu Sayyaf, and others who had made contact with their daughter.“We learned from women that were ransomed out by their governments that…she was held in many cold, dark places. She was raped by al-Baghdadi, we know that to be a fact,” Carl Mueller said. “She was murdered by him or someone in his organization. That’s what we’re pursuing and that’s what we hope thatOn Monday, McCain said al-Baghdadi is “the worst of the worst of the worst kind of scum on the planet.”“I hope he’s burning in hell with Osama bin Laden. I don’t care if that’s un-[politically correct] to say this morning,” McCain said. “I don’t care. It’s our life or the others.”McCain also recalled the moment in which she heard of former al-Qaida leader“I wanted to celebrate yesterday, and there was not this feeling of celebration in the way that we should take these wins because it’s a win for America,” said McCain of al-Baghdadi’s death. “It’s a win for democracy, and it’s a win for freedom and it’s a win for people who don’t believe in torture and raping young women who are just volunteering with Doctors Without Borders overseas.”“I really think, at this moment, all of our hearts should be with the Mueller family today.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
