Iowa farmer jumping on marketing opportunities
An Iowa farmer is picking his spots as corn and soybean prices soar to new heights.
Billie Danner of West Liberty tells Brownfield there are some excellent marketing opportunities right now.
“We’re hedging and trying to take the best advantage of that we can.”
He points out a year ago corn prices were about three dollars per-bushel lower than they are now.
“That was frustrating. We never know what we wish for (but) are getting to a point here now where profitability looks good and we’re just trying to capture that the best we can.”
July corn futures closed 25 cents higher Friday at $6.73 ¼.
