Farmer would like to see demand pick up for exports
A Nebraska farmer says he’s closely watching US exports and what that means for his bottom line.
Chris Clausen tells Brownfield demand has been steady the past few years. “Now, it sounds like China and their economy has backed off a bit so we’re producing more than we need right now.”
He says it’s becoming more difficult to market his grain. “The markets don’t want to respond to the dry weather. We’re pretty much in sideways market. Exports are weighing on that, and hopefully we see some more demand and we got a pop in the market.”
Clausen says the weather could have taken a bigger toll on crop production that what the market has accounted for.
