OSU to Host Workshop Series for Producers Interested in Selling Direct To Consumer Beef

By: Oklahoma Farm Report – July 19, 2023

During Covid, when there wasn’t a lot of meat on the shelves, there was a lot of interest in getting food locally and getting food direct from farmers and ranchers. With that came an increased demand for direct-to-consumer beef, and we really needed to help ranchers understand both the opportunities and the pitfalls with selling meat direct to consumer.”

Top Rice Supplier India Bans Some Exports

By: Channel News Asia – July 21, 2023

“India’s ban will drive up global prices, even if other countries such as Thailand and Vietnam step in. As rice is a major staple, countries that are relatively low and middle-income will also be hit badly. When the price of a key staple goes up, that just makes people's lives worse because we are already seeing worldwide inflationary pressures. In fact, it's one of the reasons why India has imposed this ban.”

Best Bites: Cheers! A Toast to Valley Wineries: Where to Find the Most Delicious Local Wines

By: Gazette Net – July 28, 2023

“The thing I love most about wine is visiting wineries – especially ones that have a great set-up for tasting, eating, drinking and entertainment. Our three main local wineries, Black Birch Vineyard in Hatfield, Mineral Hills Winery in Florence, and Glendale Ridge Vineyard in Southampton, all have this in spades. Because of these three modest-sized family-owned businesses, we’ve got a wine region.”

What's Going on With Rice Exports?

By: Marketplace – July 28, 2023

“People see some big market disruption, and they run out, they panic, they think the sky is falling, prices are going to skyrocket and they might do that in the short term. There isn’t evidence of dramatic price increases yet, at least in the United States. But even if there is a big spike, the rice market will probably settle. Prices tend to, you know, tend to mediate and fall back down to some sort of more stable equilibrium.”
