Idaho Farm Bureau

With Covid it's been a long rough year for ranchers… they're working hard, saw demand drop with restaurants close, and saw flat market prices.  All of this at a time where meatpackers saw their profits skyrocket…The USDA took notice and the American Farm Bureau too…The Idaho Farm Bureau held a Beef committee meeting where they heard from American on this issue:


USDA's latest look at monthly beef numbers shows a rise in production, yet prices to remain the same as last month. Rod Bain reports from Washington:


The latest complete agricultural export numbers show U.S. exports continuing to increase. Gary Crawford has more. ‘


Across the board, things are looking up for Ag…we’ve had a good snow year. And with the warming temperatures, we are starting to see equipment move back into the fields.
