NCAPS student explains ethanol crisis affecting local farmers

NCAPS student explains ethanol crisis affecting local farmers

RITA BRHEL | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Sam VonSpreckelsen presents on the U.S. ethanol crisis; he mentored with Edgar beef producer Dawn Caldwell at Aurora Cooperative.

This has been a hard year for Clay County farmers. Much of the trouble has been due to unprecedented weather patterns, but commodity markets certainly have not helped in making up for weather-related yield losses.

Playing a significant part in what drives corn prices—currently sitting at an average $3.76 per bushel as of Dec. 6—is demand by the U.S. ethanol industry, a segment of the economy currently entwined in crisis.

“Mostly, corn around here is used for ethanol,” Sam VonSpreckelsen, a high school junior, said during his semester-end presentation on Dec. 5 as part of the NCAPS program.

FILE PHOTO | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

In a second part to the series, Edgar farmer John Greer delves deeper into the Nebraska Corn Board, discussing topics such as working with Asia through the U.S. Grains Council’s Asia action team, as well as market development.

In this Part 2 of this two-part series, we take an in-depth look into the Nebraska Corn Board’s Market Development Committee, on which Edgar farmer John Greer serves, as well as get a glimpse into the intricacies of marketing U.S. corn to Asia.
