2014: Falling Grain Prices, Rising Cattle

KSAL StaffDecember 28, 2014

Farmers and ranchers across Kansas are wrapping a growing season marked by rapidly changing fortunes buffeted by weather and markets.

The 2014 farming year in Kansas brought a meager winter wheat harvest before late spring rains eased drought conditions just in time to green up pastures and sustain bountiful fall crops of corn, soybeans and sorghum.

Cattle producers enjoyed unprecedented high livestock prices coupled with plunging feed costs.

The weather outlook for January through March of 2015 has given farmers hope, as forecasts call for wetter than normal conditions. But drought has been four years in the making in parts of Kansas and it is premature to say it is over.
