Costs, Profits, and Pitfalls in the Volatile 2022 Market Environment

Inflation uncertainty works both ways for commodity producers -- we can sell our grain at higher (hopefully profitable) prices, but all the inputs going into the calculation are also skyrocketing. In a three-part presentation, Elaine Kub will put specific numbers to the challenges Nebraska farmers face going into the 2022 planting season, including a deep dive into the costs of production, global supply-and-demand and transportation influences that may sustain or threaten profitable grain prices, and tips to address common behavior patterns and optimize each marketing plan based on an individual’s risk appetite.
