  • What to expect from feed grains to be harvested in 2012

    May 08, 2012

    U.S. farmers are facing several challenges in 2012. In some parts of the country, drought and generally dry weather is the major problem. On the other hand, the USDA is reporting that El Nino and La Nina are creating warmer water temperatures which may delay farmers from getting their crops in the ground. With so many variables in play, what can one expect from the 2012 grain harvest? Furthermore, what are the potential implications for animal feed? 

    A commodities consultant and a feed expert will address these and other questions. 

    After their presentation, the panel will also answer questions posed by the moderator and by the live webinar audience.

    This webinar is part of the 2012 WattAgNet Webinar Series and is sponsored by AB Vista.
