    Farmers Push for Trade, Not Aid

    By Kayla Hedrick

    Published 6 months ago

    While the Chinese retaliatory tariffs and the resulting implications have been discussed among agriculture circles for months, perhaps the news that has caused the most conversation among farmers and the general public is the $12 billion aid package announced by President Trump in late July... The package does, in fact, include direct payments to seven crops; but it also includes purchase of foods (fruits, nuts, meat, dairy) for food banks and nutrition programs and trade promotion to develop new markets. Most farmer organizations have thanked the administration for the support, but noted that it is merely a band aid for a hemorrhaging market... 00 may not seem like much, soybeans were already 50 percent lower than they were just four years ago – causing pain points prior to the tariffs and forcing farmers to operate with miniscule – and quickly disappearing – margins... Market-development efforts – funded in part by the soybean checkoff, grants from the USDA Foreign Ag Service and private industry funds – have led to trade missions abroad and trade teams at home to learn about each other’s businesses and set U...

    Blockchain Technology: A Lifeline to Small-Scale Farmers

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 9 months ago

    Technology has been an integral part of agriculture since at least 5,000 years ago, documented through the use of ploughs in ancient Sumeria... Still, some in the industry are unsure of the latest development to disrupt agriculture... The result? Walmart’s VP of food safety, Frank Yiannis, stated the company was “encouraged” by the potential for reducing the timeline of investigations into food-borne illness from weeks to seconds... If blockchain technology can help farmers and food producers from the developing world, as well as multi-national mega-corporations, why not streamline and accelerate the distribution of your products?What is the blockchain, and how are these applications disrupting agriculture?In a nutshell, blockchain technology is creating new economic opportunities through decentralization, while enhancing security. To better understand the blockchain, and its potential impact on the agricultural industry, I sat down with Edwin Luk (Twitter: @EdwinLuk8175), a partner at Sysconverge and advisor to the Blockchain Advisory Council...

    Become more profitable by understanding and controlling transaction costs

    By John Moody

    Published 9 months ago

    Imagine your farm or business handles six hundred thousand dollars per year... You know that your margins are tight - just a few percentage points separate you from being in the red or black. But how much attention do you pay to the impact those transaction costs have on your operation?Transaction Costs - A stone age industry For quite a while, businesses found themselves at the mercy of credit card companies and whatever charges they imposed to use their services... Also, if your transactions consist of mostly small dollar amounts - $25 and under - your percentage cost may be much HIGHER. This is because many companies charge a flat per transaction fee plus a percentage...

    The problem with traditional Agricultural Lending

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 8 months ago

    The problem with traditional Agricultural Lending is beyond Portfolio Theory, Diversification, Credit or Operational Risk, as well as Financial Servicing Capacity to service debt obligations in unpredictable markets predicated by supply and demand... Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation(FDIC) has a very regulated and structurally implemented framework that governs Asset Liability Management which has a strong impact to the profitability of Agricultural Businesses where Commodity prices fluctuate according to Risk-Neutrality. (FDIC) Maintains an Interagency Policy Statement on Funding and Liquidity Risk Management. The Office of the Comptroller of the currency (OCC), Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS), and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) (collectively, the agencies) in conjunction with the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) are issuing this guidance to provide consistent interagency expectations on sound practices for managing funding and liquidity risk. The guidance summarizes the principles of sound liquidity risk management that the agencies have issued in the past and, where appropriate, harmonizes these principles with the international statement recently issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision titled Principles for Sound Liquidity Risk Management and SupervisionThe exact roles and perimeter around Asset Liability Management can vary significantly from one bank (or other financial institutions) to another depending on the business model adopted and can encompass a broad area of risks...

    "The policy issues under serious discussion in Washington, D.C. are many, but two in particular top the list of priorities for U.S. farmers – immigration and trade—according to Mary Kay Thatcher, senior director of congressional relations for the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF). And while farm lobbyists watch those issues play out, hope is high that tax reform is on the way."
