    Some on-farm feeders may be contemplating the need for price protection at this time of year on calves retained with the intent to feed them to a finish weight sometime in 2022. Despite solid fed cattle prices in the current market, feed costs and current feeder calf values still make for tight feeding margins moving forward. In this issue of RightRisk News, we look at projected break-evens and LRP insurance as a price protection tool in the above scenario.

    2020 and 2021 were dry years in Nebraska and PRF insurance paid out considerable indemnities to help cattle producers mitigate the effects this had on forage production. The signup deadline for calendar year 2022 PRF coverage is Dec. 1, 2021.

    Cybersecurity + Agriculture – Hardening the Food and Agriculture Supply Chain Against Threats

    By Christine Bucan

    Published Nov 12 

    CyberAg, a program of the Eastern Shore Entrepreneurship Center (ESEC), has announced its third symposium will take place during a special pre-conference session of the 2021 Maryland Farm Bureau on December 5 in Cambridge, MD. Titled “Cyber Sunday,” the event will focus on the growing threats to the agriculture community from cybercriminals, nation states, activists, and malicious competitors. Registration is free and there will be virtual streaming for those unable to attend in person. While the agricultural and food supply industries have historically had little demand for cybersecurity, recent ransomware assaults on companies like JBS and New Cooperative have brought the issue to the forefront. Industry experts will discuss how to recognize threats, how to defend against them and, if needed, how to respond to an attack...

    Financing of Renewable Energy Projects. A propelling factor.

    By REAL BRIDGING

    Published Nov 9 

    Finding funds for large projects today is one of the major barriers to the development of the renewable energy sources (RES). The development of such projects requires significant capital expenditures for planning and designing, purchasing and installing equipment, as well as training or hiring personnel to operate and maintain the installed systems. This is especially true when it comes to geothermal power plants or other advanced technologies. They are perceived by financial institutions as high-risk investments and, therefore, companies have limited access to finance. Some difficulties in financing renewable energy projects:•High initial investment compared to other traditional energy sources...

    I have a question - actually two questions - and would very much appreciate any input you can provide, as my "boots on the ground" are usually planted in front of a computer.

    They both have to do with farm data. I'm trying to understand which data types, sources and circumstances require you to repeatedly transfer, duplicate and waste time because it can't be transferred or shared - not including compliance.

    2) What types/sources of data have resulted in real cost savings? For example, data collected to identify the reasons for high fleet idle rates or data from software that shows other sources of efficiencies.

    This is a lot to ask, and if you would prefer not to answer here, I hope I'm not violatiing protocol by sharing my email address (apologies if I am). I'd welcome your thoughts, as I've only been in the industry a little over a year. I'm at mvalin@skywardapps.com. Let me assure you this is a reality check, not a sales pitch. Many thanks! Margie

    Cover Crop Corner: Part 2 Cover Crop Economics: Long-term gains through holistic improvements

    By Feed the Soil, Feed the World

    Published Oct 13 

    In part two of this two-part series on the economics of cover crops, we explore how a holistic approach to taking care of resources comes with long-term gains. By GO SEEDThere are no “quick fixes” when it comes to the health of soils, the benefits take more than overnight to show up. While it takes time and deliberate care to learn how to enhance resources holistically within your own system, the general principles are relatively simple and can be significant cost savings. “Soil is the natural capital of the land,” explains Dr Shannon Cappellazzi, GO Seed Director of Research. “By making the investment in soil health, not only are you making an impact on all of the downstream ecosystem services that are related to soil functions, you are also regenerating the land for continued agricultural production...

    6 Ways to Make Money Off of Farmland

    By Corey Tyner

    Updated Sep 27 

    Owning farmland is fantastic because even if you sell nothing off it, it gains value over time for simply being a large plot of land. However, if you don't want to wait to earn an income, more quick ways to make money off this property. These are the top ways to gain money off of your farmland besides selling crops! But, of course, if you have a large enough property, you can combine many of these options to achieve an even larger income!1. Raising Animals To Produce ProductsAnimals are a natural part of owning and working farmland. Not only are they fantastic for creating fertilizer for your crops, but they can also keep away any invasive plant species like kudzu and allow you to create items that you can sell...

    Cetane versus octane

    By Ray Bohacz

    Updated Sep 24 

    Head: The difference between octane and cetaneBy: Ray T. BohaczEven deep within farm country where compression ignition engines are dominant, little to no conversation is ever heard about a fuel’s cetane rating. In contrast, even the most disconnected motorist is familiar with the term octane. A very common misconception is that the terms refer to almost the same aspect of the respective fuel. It is true that both identify a characteristic of combustibility, but they are as different as soybeans are from corn in terms of nitrogen scavenging...

    I'm interested in figuring out how farmers track their grain from field to bin then how they reconcile that with the elevator's scale tickets.

    I'm a farmer's wife who recently started to take more interest in ensuring we are getting paid for all our bushels and that each landowner gets their share of the crop. Right now, my husband writes down loads on a sheet of paper. He knows what goes in which bin from what field, but as the bookkeeper, I would like to utilize technology to aid in this.

    Can anyone give me suggestions?

    Systems. The concept of a system varies depending on context. When ASN thinks about systems, we think about multiple components working together to accomplish an overall goal. A “systems approach” becomes a path that involves people, products, equipment, lessons, conversations and goals all merging into one. We sat down with founder Monte Bottens to discuss his thoughts on why working from a systems approach is so important...

    "The specific knowledge gained from testing weed resistance can return value directly to the farm operation in the form of not spending money on products that will not work or are not necessary. For those renting land with resistant weed issues, testing could give the grower a strong, evidence-based argument to use when negotiating additional herbicide cost-share or even proposing a change in crop rotation or other management practices aimed at addressing the issue."
