STATEMENT FROM PRESIDENT MARK HANEY ON THE 2018 FARM BILL

I can’t overemphasize the importance of the Farm Bill to Kentucky farm families and rural communities. It truly is the single most important piece of legislation related to agriculture. The failure to pass the bill in the House, while disappointing, should be viewed as an opportunity to work harder, speak louder, and advocate more often to see this bill through to passage and ultimately law.

CBOT futures closed mixed with limited market news to trade on. A much stronger US Dollar today weighed on commodity prices, some more than others.  Cattle futures closed up sharply with the April LC contract closing near the day’s highs and posting the best gain for LC futures. LC futures charted “gap higher” openings.
