Farmers outline long term concern about markets
Many farmers say they’re concerned that low commodity prices may not improve much for the 2024 crop year.
“We’re going to really have to be savvy in our marketing decisions.”
Northeast Nebraska farmer Greg Anderson says he hasn’t seen the market react to an uptick in export sales. “Our products are kind of on sale right now with some, hopefully, harvest lows so we can get a bounce going into the late fall and winter.”
Southeast Nebraska farmer Logan Bredemeier says it’s becoming more challenging to market his crop. “When you look at the futures for the December contract for this year, it peaked out at harvest last year.
Quentin Connealy farms along the Missouri River and tells Brownfield he was fortunate but that could be short-lived. “We tried to lock in on some good prices early. Now, we’re just along for the ride.”
