JUST IN: Minnesota @GovTimWalz & @MNagriculture Commissioner Thom Petersen will be in East Grand Forks on Tuesday, October 29 for a roundtable discussion with farmers and agricultural leaders. We will bring you more details when the agenda is finalized.
Spoke w/ @USDA Under Secretary Bill Northey to urge @usdafsa to provide disaster + MFP trade assistance to #NDag producers as soon as possible. Also discussed the need for crop insurance extensions & ELAP for ranchers to address impacts from wet fall, early blizzard.
Today on the Senate floor I made the case that #USMCAnow will secure important market access in Canada & Mexico for U.S. #farmers & ranchers. These are crucial markets for #NDag & passing #USMCA will give producers certainty that these markets will remain open for business.
HARVEST 19 - I am looking for the 19 best pictures from this fall to put in a picture book. Send me your picture with a short caption and if it makes the book I will send you a copy. Give me some love and retweet -
Huge turn out in Wells County with Governor @DougBurgum & Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring last night. They urged everyone to have patience, yet reach out with any concerns, it’s a tough time for North Dakota & Western MN Agriculture. We will overcome these tough times.
Grateful for all of the farmers, ranchers & community members who attended yesterday’s flood meetings and shared with us the challenges they’re facing as we respond to this unprecedented fall flooding. Check out NDresponse.gov for more information on available resources.
At our @SenateAgGOP hearing, I spoke w/ Deputy Secretary Censky about ensuring #NDag producers receive the support they need from WHIP+, as well as the #farmbill & trade assistance. These programs are vitally important given the challenges facing farm country.
Chiming in is @NDagriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring, who says, “I have never seen a fall ever like this.” He encourages farmers who are struggling to talk to someone or even give the Department a call.
while it's hard to believe a 1929-style crash can happen again - considering exchange stabilizers, and central banks open market operations - it's interesting to note that 90 years ago this week the great crash unfolded
ACRES OF TERROR -2019- Now Open on all farms in North Dakota. Here the price of admission is FREE (shovel included). Guaranteed to scare you so bad you will never want anything to do with farming! Come on out, we’re open late... #corn#beans#beets#doesntmatter
1 of 2— Back in Winnipeg in October of 1913, a CPR grain elevator annex, loaded with a million bushels of wheat, tipped over. It sank slowly until it came to a rest at a 30-degree angle. The annex was only one year old and it stayed intact through the event.
ND Governor @DougBurgum and @NDagriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring will be in Fargo, Grand Forks, Jamestown & Fessenden on Monday. The team will visit these flood-affected areas to look at damage for federal disaster requests & visit with farmers & ranchers.
Besides 2007, since 2000 there have been exactly 4 times that MW/W front month continuation chart has been below even. 2003, 2006, 2010, and 2015. In every instance it made an extreme rebound the very next month.
I just want to state for the record that in my college corporate finance class I was docked class participation points for saying that it was possible to have negative interest rates and yes I am the kind of student who 10 years later wants my points back
