It was a busy and fun day at the Minnesota State Fair. For a number of years I have been asked to be one of the announcers for the 4-H hog show. I would call the different classes to the staging area and announce the line up in each class
After big daily ranges earlier in the week, it was fairly quiet in the corn market today as corn closed about unchanged. For the week corn only lost about 2 cents. December corn is now only about 10 cents a bushel below where it was trading going into the August USDA report
While many say the Minnesota State Fair began this morning, I argue it started last evening at 8:30 with the Princess Kay of the Milky Way Coronation. Twelve finalists from around the state were competing for the honor of representing the dairy industry in Minnesota
The Steele County 4-H Auction was held Saturday morning on the Steele County Fairgrounds in Owatonna. Once again it was great to see so many business and individuals there supporting the Steele County 4-H Auction
Yesterday afternoon I went out to the farm, hooked up the stalk chopper and began chopping my sweet corn field. Last Saturday afternoon I got a call from my field man at Birds Eye Foods telling me they had to bypass my sweet corn
Corn was firmer in overnight trading but saw weakness right from the open this morning and closed 3-4 cents lower. The Dollar Index was down a lot Monday and did not seem to help support corn. Today the Dollar Index gained back about half of Monday's losses and that seemed to pressure corn
Corn closed 1-3 cents higher, which was quite remarkable given the stock market was down almost 1,200 points at one time this morning. By noon the stock market was down only a little over 100 points but closed down about 600 points
Saturday evening in the Livestock Show Arena at the Steele County Fair, Conrad Kvamme from Arlington was named the Steele County Free Fair KDHL Southern Minnesota Ag Ambassador of the Year. Kvamme was a dairy farmer and in 1972 established Space Age Dairy Sales
Corn had modest gains Thursday but gave them back Friday, closing 2-5 cents lower. The Dollar was about 100 points lower, but that did not even help corn. It was a bit of a victory that corn actually gained about 2 cents for the week
I sure enjoyed going down to the Steele County Fair on Thursday afternoon. Not that it wasn't fun Tuesday or Wednesday, but it sure was nice to have a warm day with sunshine. It was a tough start to the Steele County Fair due to rain the first couple days
