Aug 09, 2021

On 8/3, Pete Courteau, CFS Grain Marketing Advisor, had an opportunity to attend an event at Felton Farm in Northfield, MN. The event included several politicians; Minnesota State Senator for District 58, Zach Duckworth, candidate for Congress Tyler Kistner, running against Angie Craig and U.S. Congressman Michael Cloud, 27th District in Texas, and Ag Committee Member. The above and others boarded a bus to tour the area farms. Discussions during the tour included the estate tax proposed by the current administration, along with other policies and their impacts.  Stops included Syngenta Seed, River Country Coop & Square Deal Dairy, run by the Otte family. See below for our peek into one of Otte’s cow barns. Here Mr. Otte talked about the various government policies that affect their operation. We also stopped at the CFS Randolph grain facility, where Pete shared information about CFS and the Randolph facility. During the visit, Pete discussed the effects of increased taxes on opportunities to reinvest in the company and its employees to continue to serve our cooperative members.

Join the Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota on June 1 for Ag Education
Day. Ag is so relevant in our region, but many children only “see” it from a bus window. This FREE 
Museum day gives a hands-on opportunity to explore, learn, and ask questions about the importance 
of agriculture in our everyday life. Teaching children about agriculture at a young age can help 
them start recognizing how it impacts the world around them and can help them learn other important 
aspects about life.

Highlights as of 5/16:
Planting and weather conditions are the name of the game currently. With planting progress looking very favorable and the weather forecast showing above normal temps and below normal precipitation for much of the corn belt all signs point to very good planting conditions. With that, we gave up yesterday’s gains on old crop and put in some new lows on December corn.
