Let us show you how you can get the average price for the year and process your own soybeans into "EXPRESS SOYBEAN MEAL", Our mechanical process of extrusion is superior to conventional solvent extracted soybean meal due to the process in which it is manufactured gives it a higher nutrient availability to a simple stomach.  This value allows you to feed what you already raise in the same manner you feed your own corn today!  3-5% increase in both feed efficiency and improved rate of gain along with ease of grain marketing and our recent feed mill upgrades can add value and additional savings to your feeding operation.

DTN Top Stories

A provision in the 2014 farm bill essentially waives Actual Production History yields that collapsed due to extreme weather. The APH exclusion would adjust a farmer's actual yields for crop insurance in counties where the average planted-acre yield tumbled at least 50% below a 10-year county average. USDA is allowing farmers of some spring crops to take advantage of the exclusion, but winter wheat farmers may have to wait until at least next year. See DTN Ag News.
