  • Ten Ways to Increase Your Farm's Profits This Year

    By AgFuse Exclusive Content

    Published Oct 10, 2018

    And Accompanying Crop Rotations What Is Equipment Efficiency? What Scale-Related Questions Do You Need to Ask Yourself? When Does It Make Sense to Add Equipment? Part 1: Know Your True Cost of Production Want to make more money farming this year? Step one is to know your true cost of production (TCOP)... How to Calculate Your TCOP No two farms will have the same TCOP... The good news is that, once you’ve done this exercise for your farm, you can review the numbers annually and make quick changes by tweaking any necessary information about your operation... The farm will still be there when you’re done... Ideally, you will take your farm’s ten-year average for the relevant crops and use those numbers to determine a good average yield to use when computing your TCOP...

    Why Hemp Isn’t Going to Save the US Farmer (But How It Could)

    By The Crossover

    Published Aug 16, 2019

    In late 2018, a new farm bill was passed that legalized the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity while also removing it from the list of “controlled substances”. The Gold Rush of the modern farming era was on. The farming industry was buzzing with new information on how to grow and market this miracle plant. Hemp farming was going to not only save the modern row crop farmer but also make him wealthy in the process... I think it’s great to have something new for farmers to produce that can add to their operation’s diversity and profitability...

    What The Intelligent Investor Can Teach Us About Farming

    By The Crossover

    Published Apr 20, 2018

    Most importantly in my role as farm business owner. Here are some lessons from The Intelligent Investor that have crossed over into the way I think about farming... In farming, we are selling commodities rather than buying pieces of a business but the idea is still the same... It's probably the most important calculation you'll do all year on the farm and unfortunately not enough people really take the time to do it. In fact, one of my local Farm Credit executives estimates that less than 5% of his customers know this number for their operation...

    American Farmers Need Foreign Investment ASAP

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jul 1, 2018

    In most of the world's economies, it is now common to consider traditional farming or ranching as staging a complex food and fiber system... In The United States, The Farm Credit System, Commercial Banks, Agribusinesses, Public Credit Programs, and other Federally Regulated Lenders have adopted new levels of financial analysis, credit risk assessment, information sharing, performance monitoring in conjunction with building sound lender-borrower relationships. The Institutional management of credit, operational, and market risk together with determining the levels of economic capital required to withstand such risk have become standardized to a very conservative model so consequently Agricultural Businesses have been at the mercy of The Major Components of The Farm Credit System. All American Agricultural businesses play by the rules of Farm Credit Leasing Services Corporation, Federal Farm Credit Banks Funding Corporation, Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation, Farm Credit Financial Assistance Corporation, The Farm Credit Council, Farm Credit Administration, Farm Credit Banks, Federal Land Credit Associations, Agricultural Credit Associations, Farmer, Rancher, and Rural Homeowner Stockholders or Borrowers, CoBank National Bank for Cooperatives, and Cooperative Stockholders. However, since the recession in 2008 those funding sources coupled with dropping commodity prices and rising interest rates have lead farmers to seek alternative funding sources...

    Uruguay now is now investing in USA farms; Read Why.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 14, 2018

    The MERCOSUR Member;Uruguay, with a much smaller landmass and population then either Brazil or Argentina has as the largest sector of its Agricultural production, principally producing Rice, Wheat, Corn, Barley, Livestock, Cattle and Fish, therefore contributing to the BLOC’s extensive Export Import Trade. Agrilend views Uruguay is set to experience a period of structurally lower growth in the coming years, as investment into expanding agricultural production and re-export capacity is tempered and foreign capital begins to flow into Argentina as the new Argentine government liberalizes its investment environment. Nonetheless, Uruguay will continue to outpace Latin America's average real GDP expansion as the country's middle class supports private consumption growth... Export revenues have been highly uneven over the past decade as a result of the varying economic performances in the country’s key export markets... The good news for American Farmers especially in Cattle, Beef, Livestock, Milk, Dairy, and Cheese is that since China is pretty much buying all of the countries agricultural products at a pace far faster than it can produce Uruguay as well as Argentina and Brazil are seeking to invest in American farms to deliver this needed deficit quickly! All i can say is Amercian farmers should be singing moooooooooooooooo! For this is great news! For more information please contact me at robertmorgan@agrilend...

    How can Farmers get Paid Right Now By Becoming an Agrilend Member

    By Robert Morgan

    Published Jun 29, 2018

    Agricultural Businesses or Farmers for the last few centuries have relied on Fiat Currency... However for a farmer who relies on goods being exchanged Fiat has several disadvantages, especially for Agricultural Farmers who produce today hoping to get paid tomorrow for the commodities they produce. Fiat Money does not have for today's farmer utility or use value... Fiat was introduced as an alternative to commodity value and representative value and commodities like corn can lower in value today which means the farmer can loose money as depicted in the diagram below unless he or she was simultaneously putting forward future option contracts on wheat. Truth is most farmers do not have the time to predict markets, be financiers and arbitrage all at one time...

At the center of the film are the farmers, young and old, who provide the spirit and energy to bring urban and rural America together over what both share in common: our food. These farmers reflect nothing less than the face of America. With the average age of today’s farmer at 60, and rural America losing population as the cost of land and equipment soars, this film reveals the people waiting to take their place, the practices they’re championing and the obstacles they must overcome.
