The cost of harvest

The cost of harvesting this year’s crop is weighing on the minds of farmers like Jamie Beyer in west-central Minnesota.

“Every time that tractor needs fuel, it’s a $2,000 decision. And we have to do a lot of drying of our grain typically in the fall and winter season, and natural gas prices and all of that (could add up) so hopefully people have locked in a reasonable amount and have already figured that into their budget.”

The Wheaton-area corn, soybean and small grain producer tells Brownfield it’s a volatile market environment.
