Iowa crops and livestock farmers with thin margins

Producers of crops and livestock in southwestern Iowa say the margins are tight.

Duane Aistrope raises cattle and grows corn and soybeans in Fremont County.

“We only feed cows in the background and perform cow / calf surgery. Currently, feed prices are a bit high. But the cow market is where we can still make money. Hanging in. “

He says brownfield feed costs only increase as winter approaches.

“I was working on some books and was looking at the last feed invoice for some creep feeds. We just weaned the calves, and they gave a lot of feed. I started eating, and I said the invoice and “I saw the holy cows they are really cleaning up now.”

Aistrope is also concerned about next year’s crop input as prices of all major fertilizers continue to rise.
