Down the Backroads | Kindness Really Is a Way of Life in Kentucky

CBOT futures mostly closed strongly higher and near the day’s highs. Corn led the rally with strong follow-through buying to Tuesday’s rally. Live cattle closed slightly lower with bigger losses in the feeder futures due to higher corn prices. Lean hog futures were down slightly except for nearby October LH which closed up 1.90 @ 82.27.

Corn and soybean futures closed lower, although well off the day’s lows, as traders were disappointed there wasn’t follow-through buying to Friday’s higher closes. Cattle futures closed lower, pressured by weaker boxed beef values and a weekend fire at the JBS plant in Grand Island, NE. Lean hog futures also closed sharply lower and are down around $9/cwt in the past week.

President's Message | Federal Estate Tax Proposals Will Hurt Kentucky Farm Families

Adding a huge tax obstacle to an already challenging industry could prove to be detrimental in maintaining an industry that supplies our food, fuel, and fiber needs. At some point we all must come to the realization that if the decline in farms and farm families continues, there will also come a time when we must depend on other countries to help feed our nation. Do we really want that to happen?
