SwineCast update for January 21, 2010, Twenty-Ten Impacts of 2009's Top Ag Law Provisions and MN Congress Agenda Overview

Producer interest in technology and risk management was high at the Minnesota Pork Congress. While exhibitors felt the turnout was down slightly, general attitudes were positive following months of unprofitability. Steve Meyer noted profitable hedging opportunities are now available and suggested growers lock in those positive margins when they’re available.
