Midwest farmer doing best to manage fuel cost

A Midwestern farmer is doing his best to manage spiking fuel costs.

Northwestern Illinois corn and soybean grower Jon Rosenstiel tells Brownfield with diesel prices more than doubling, a full tank to haul grain is at a premium.

“$6 fuel and, maybe, 150 gallons at a crack,” he said. “You’re pushing $900 to $1000 there. So, it’s very painful just to haul corn to market.”

Rosenstiel said that’s putting an emphasis on alternatives.
