To Reduce Adult Crime, Invest More In Early Childhood Education

By: Rochester Beacon – March 22, 2023

It is worth emphasizing that the benefits generated by the Head Start and Smart Start early childhood education programs on subsequent crime reduction paid for a large portion of the cost of providing the education. Moreover, these benefits paid for almost all the costs of providing education in high-poverty areas.

"Brazil Passes U.S. As Largest Corn Exporter"

By: Agri marketing – March 20, 2023

“In its March "World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE)" report, the USDA raised its forecast for Brazilian corn exports to 50 million tons for the 2022-23 marketing year (October-September). That would put Brazil above the United States, the long-established world leader in corn exports. The United States is expected to ship 47 million tons to foreign buyers, two million tons less than the February forecast. Brazilian exports have risen sevenfold in 15 years, jumping from 7 million tons to 50 million tons. Brazil and China signed an agreement on phytosanitary requirements for corn trade last year, and the first shipment of Brazilian corn to China occurred in November 2022.”

"Increasing Agricultural Debt and Impact on Illinois Grain Farms"

By: – March 20, 2023

"Agricultural debt on a nominal basis in Illinois has been increasing since 1991. Data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Illinois Farm Business Farm Management (FBFM) are shown to see if increasing debt levels pose problems for the financial health of Illinois farms. With more variability in the farm economy and rising inflation, increasing debt levels need to be monitored closely.”

"Ag Policies Called Biased Toward Grain"

By: Sask Today – March 19, 2023

“There is no equivalent of crop insurance for livestock farmers. Thus, there is some argument that a safety net provides an incentive to convert marginal land from pasture to crops. However, there are business risk management programs for all types of farmers, including beef producers. More importantly, the market and commodity prices have a much larger influence on farmer behavior. I think high crop prices (and decent weather) are the major reason for this conversion. While government programs play some role, the difference in relative returns from the market is a major driver.”

"Local Manure Regulations Can Help Reduce Water Pollution From Dairy Farms"

By: – March 20, 2023

"Wisconsin is unique, because they have allowed counties to participate in enforcement of state agricultural code without state approval. Most states have either sole state-level enforcement or allow local enforcement only with state approval. As a result, Wisconsin has more county-level participation in manure management than neighboring states, although the state still maintains enforcement authority as well.”

"Dairy Sector Boasts 100 Years Of Successful Herd Data Collection"

By: Eurasia Review – March 23, 2023

“The National Cooperative Dairy Herd Improvement Program (NCDHIP) is an interesting case study because it illustrates how to translate the benefits of data collection for all dairy producers. Its model can serve as inspiration for other agricultural sectors. Previously it was commonplace for dairy farmers to water down their milk to get paid more. But farmers were now paid on butterfat instead of milk weight. The Babcock test created a paradigm shift in dairy, giving producers an incentive to learn and fund research about this new metric.”

By: Trademagazin– March 23, 203

“Inflation will eventually reach a point where it stabilizes and then normalizes. February figures point in that direction. He says: “If the pressure eases at the very beginning of the food supply chain, the impact will go reach retail shelves in a very, very long period of time.”
