KNUJ is holding another Farm Forum to discuss relevant issues concerning area ag producers Thursday afternoon. Scheduled to take part in the hour-long on-air forum are local Ag Experts Wayne Schoper and Kent Thiesse. Minnesota Farm Network Farm Director Emery Kleven will serve as the moderator as well. Topics expected to be covered include an update on the harvest around the area – including yields, quality, and tillage; farm safety concerns; the impact of lower crop prices on crop insurance payments, crop budgets, and livestock profitability; recent trends in land values; how the Federal Government Shutdown affects agriculture in southern Minnesota, and more.
