It is important, especially in today’s farming/ranching economy, not to waste anything, ESPECIALLY a hot commodity like feed! With the way parts of the country has been dealin’ with drought lately, it’s so important to be conscious of what is used, how it is used, and when it is used.
A big concern right now is not having enough seed to be able to afford to plant next year to even make feed. I don’t know if ya’ll realize, but we have a shortage in plantin’ seed. If we can’t figure out a way to get the seed we need, we might have to import the seed from outside the country, which would raise our prices. I don’t know about ya’ll, but I think prices are enough as it is.
Just because we have an excess of world supplies of seed and prices are trendin’ down in markets for things like wheat, does not mean that as the United States, we are where we need to be. So watch what you use, be conscious of what will happen if we waste too much, and pray that the drought doesn’t cause too many shortages in seed so our prices won’t raise too much more!
