  • How to Create a Low-Input, High-Revenue System with Wide-Row Intercropping

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Dec 9, 2019  

    In Gaston, Ind. , Jason Mauck is farming a little differently from his neighbors. Unlike the typical corn-and-soybean monocropping system, for the last 5 years Mauck has been doing low population, wide-row relay intercropping. So far he has seen success with soybeans into wheat, but he’s also working on corn intercropped with a legume. Inspired by the results he saw from interplanting and using low populations in the landscape business he started prior to farming full-time, his goal is to capitalize on sunshine, wheat and hog manure — annually Mauck has about 5 million gallons from his 25,000 finishing hogs operation...

    Value Added Products - The future for farms of all sizes?

    By John Moody

    Published Apr 9, 2018  

    Many farmers have felt the pinch of falling food prices over the past year. Some sectors of the ag industry, especially dairy, are in a free fall, with our fellow farm friends hurting badly as low prices, consolidation, and other forces forcing many to sell off operations or even sell their farms. It is difficult days, but as I noted in my earlier article, things haven’t been good for US farmers in quite some time... For instance, a farmer making cheese or butter will produce high value whey, a perfect food for hogs... A farm could go even further, having the hogs turned into various sausages and other chaucertierie products...

    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018  

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead... That land supports “just under 1,000 head of cattle, about 5,000 laying hens, 600 hogs per year, 20,000 broilers, and 2,000 turkeys...

    How Feasible is Organic Corn?

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Published Aug 14  

    Organic corn is both economically viable and technically feasible. Even though organic corn yield is 32% lesser, the prices are double that of conventional corn, guaranteeing attractive returns on investment (ROI) to growers. Moreover, there is growing technical information available to advise organic corn production. Growing Demand for Organic CornThe demand for organic corn is expected to grow globally at a CAGR of 1. 9% and amount to 1170 million USD by 2026...

    Controlling input costs - one of the best returns on investment

    By John Moody

    Published May 2, 2018  

    The importance of controlling your costs One of my favorite stories involves a lady and a farmer. The farmer sold milk right off the farm for about $4. 00 a gallon. The lady would, each week, load up her four or so kids, drive forty five minute each way, and pick up three gallons of milk in return... So, say you raise six hogs a year...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018  

    Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted... To make VIF work, Smithfield also utilizes a large number of contract farmers who agree to raise the hogs to certain specifications before shipping them either to another farm or for processing... The farmer owns the farm and is paid a specific amount for their efforts, but otherwise is wholly dependent on Smithfield for continuing their contract, as they have no hogs of their own and are not set up for anything other than pig farm production... These are large barns filled with several thousand hogs that all relieve themselves onto slatted floors that allow their waste to fall through... For decades, neighbors of the over 4,000 giant waste lagoons in North Carolina have had to deal with the eye-watering stench of the feces, the flies and other pests drawn by the sun-baked waste, and the swarms of buzzards drawn to improperly disposed carcasses of decaying hogs...

    • Not much in the way of significant news throughout the week, as typical for this time of year in the grain markets most traders are already in holiday mode. Soybeans have managed to hold their own after a rough start to the week, while corn and wheat are testing the downside of the most recent trading range... • In addition to divided ideas on how the country should deal with trade tensions African Swine Fever was confirmed in the country’s largest pork producing region, with officials announcing a significant crackdown on the disease and transportation of hogs going forward. It is obvious containing the disease is nearly impossible as many producers are still working to transport hogs or hide expected cases... Cold storage was friendly to hogs with frozen belly stocks at a 52 week low, while overall pork stocks were down 5% from a year ago...

    This is a major issue as it would mean the disease is in the water, or at the very least an illegal movement of sick hogs took place increasing the potential of it spreading to the herd there and elsewhere. The Chinese government is taking further action to crack down on the illegal transport of hogs and working to limit the spread in slaughterhouses as well. Increased fines and jailtime were announced for those found to be illegally transporting sick hogs. While new requirements announced this week force a slaughterhouse to shut down for at least 48 hours and cull all hogs present if contamination is discovered... While the idea of increased pork imports has really helped to firm cash hogs and the hog market outlook as a whole, the Chinese feed demand potential being lost is something that should not be ignored...

    · A week full of rumors, confirmation and headlines gave everyone a lot to talk about, but surprisingly left the markets somewhat directionless. · The week started with Reuters reporting China was looking to purchase 5-8 mmt of soybeans and that sales were just days away. President Trump agreed in an interview Tuesday saying China was in the market buying large amounts. Excitement continued to build into Wednesday as additional news reports indicated $180 million worth of sales had been finalized, with subsequent reports indicating even more buying throughout the day... · As we’ve discussed before, ASF is incredibly deadly to hogs and has been spreading across the country like wildfire...

    The disease which is deadly to hogs was initially found 2 weeks ago and reported as an isolated incident. The country’s second outbreak this week was found over a thousand miles away in a group of hogs that had traveled a long distance... Some feel this is bullish for US hogs as a reduction in Chinese supply would mean import needs for the country. Others feel this could be bullish for domestic meal demand as an increase in US hog exports would mean more hogs to feed here... · Hogs also happened to get a nice shot in the arm from Mexico trade talk...
