RECORD HARVEST, UNCERTAINTY FOR FARMERS

Next to record harvests for 2018, Illinois farmers also are experiencing near-record anxiety due to the ongoing trade uncertainty with China. “Now, unfortunately, we find out very quickly how reliant we’ve become on being able to move our products internationally,” said Mark Gebhards, executive director for Governmental Affairs and Commodities at IFB. “And it was a heck of hit for us this past year. We hope we’re headed in the right direction with some of these (soybean) purchases.” (State Journal-Register)
