Todd Gleason was the guest speaker at the Christian County Farm Bureau marketing meeting on Thursday night at Krieger’s. There was discussion of short-term and long-term marketing plans for corn, soybeans, and cattle. As spring is officially here, the bulk of corn planted will occur during April before mid-May. Gleason told Regional Radio News there is good soil moisture as it’s a good start for a production season.
Gleason provided his outlook for soybeans and says South America, especially Brazil, will overtake the United States as the world’s largest producer of soybeans possibly this year or in 2017.
Gleason hosts the Closing Market Report from 2:06-2:36 p.m. on weekdays and Commodity Week on Saturdays from 8:30 – 9 a.m. on Newstalk WTIM.
