Planning Ahead for Hay Purchases

With: Randy Saner and T.L. Meyer, Nebraska Extension Beef Systems Educators

Hay production has been reported to be 50% of average or less in many areas of Nebraska and the U.S. hay supply is at a 50-year low. Couple this information with rising costs, and it becomes prudent to plan fall, winter, and next spring’s hay needs sooner rather than later.

This webinar will cover the importance of Inventorying your feed and hay resources now to know what you need and describe how checking prices and availability now will go a long way to reducing the anxiety of what we will feed our cows this fall and winter.

Farm Income Situation and Outlook

With: Scott Brown, Director of the Rural and Farm Finance Center (RaFF), University of Missouri; and Brad Lubben, Ag Policy Specialist, University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Dr. Scott Brown , Director of the Rural and Farm Finance (RaFF) Center at the University of Missouri and Dr. Brad Lubben, Policy Specialist at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Center for Agricultural Profitability, will discuss the current farm income situation and outlook at the national and state level. Recent farm income projections from USDA’s Economic Research Service and the University of Missouri’s Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute show the prospects of increased crop and livestock receipts in 2022 to propel farm income higher, but higher input costs have already tempered some of the gains and could be more significant in 2023 if commodity prices begin to fall back. Work at RaFF and collaboration with Nebraska helps to extend the analysis and outlook to the state level, providing a look at the current situation and outlook ahead for agriculture in the state.
