Ag Market Outlook Meeting Series
The ag economy faces new challenges as we enter 2024. The potential for record high corn supplies and stubbornly high input costs are creating tight margins. Projections show cattle feeders could see reduced profits compared to 2023, and forecasted returns for hog producers suggest more losses ahead. What does this mean for Iowa farmers and their farming operations?
Iowa Farm Bureau is hosting timely, informative meetings designed specifically to help Iowa farmers navigate the continued pressure of tight operating margins. Join Zach Brummer, Iowa Farm Bureau farmer education program manager, and Christopher Pudenz, Iowa Farm Bureau economics and research manager, as they discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead.
Help take some of the stress out of managing your farm margins. Register today for this important meeting, which includes critical information designed to help you navigate these uncertain times and set your farm business up for success.
Meetings will be taking place in February at five locations around the state.
