Farm Show Seminar Gets Farmers to Meat of Farm Bill

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Jim Mintert-FB at farm showDr. Jim Mintert helped cut through the clutter of the new farm bill during the Wednesday Hoosier Ag Today seminar at the Indiana-Illinois Farm Equipment Show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. The director of Purdue’s Center for Commercial Agriculture has joined Farm Bureau, Indiana Corn and Soybean and others in recent weeks around the state helping producers understand the new options farm bill under the farm bill, and he told HAT he finds most farmers are appropriately learning the bill sequentially.“We need to do base acre reallocation if we’re going to do base acres change, now. We need to do the yield updates now, and then the program election, we’ve got some time to study that a little bit, so most people that I’ve visited with are focused on base acreage reallocation potential and the yield update decision and just starting to think about which of these programs might be more advantageous.”When updating options on base acres, Mintert said there is one option that stands out as most likely to be the best one.“If you have an opportunity to reallocate base acreage towards corn and away from soybeans, we think that would be something you ought to look at very closely. In a lot of situations, probably most situations in the Corn Belt, we think that will be advantageous because we think the program payments under corn will be larger than under soybeans.”Farmers can update yield history and/or reallocate base acres through Feb. 27, 2015.The program election decision has to be made by the end of March. He said for most Indiana farmers it will be most advantageous to look closest at the Ag Risk Coverage County Program.The real decision point and the reason the Agriculture Risk Coverage program at the individual farm level is not so attractive is the fact that payments on that program are only made on 65% of your base acres, whereas in the other two programs (ARC county level and Price Loss Coverage) payments are made on 85% of your base acres. So, that for many farms in the Corn Belt makes the Ag Risk Coverage at the individual farm level relatively unattractive.”Farm Bill Workshops around the state of Indiana in January will be held in Wabash (Tuesday, 1/6), Batesville (Thursday, 1/8), West Lafayette (Friday, 1/9) and Ft. Wayne (Thursday, 1/15). Each workshop will run from 1 to 4 p.m. (EST). Prior to each workshop, Indiana Farm Bureau will host a state policy luncheon that will begin at 11:30 a.m. (EST). The workshops are jointly sponsored by the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture, Indiana Farm Service Agency, Indiana Farm Bureau, Indiana Soybean Alliance, Indiana Corn Marketing Council and Indiana State Department of Agriculture. The workshop and luncheon are both free, but you’re asked to register for them online. Click this link for a recorded Purdue farm bill webinar.

first_imgOur Seniors recorded another win at the weekend with a 4-11 to 0-7 victory over Buncrana. Due to weather conditions this match was moved to Ballyshannon and our boys got off to a flyer. The quick use of the football and early supply of ball to forwards left Buncrana trailing and saw the boys hold a half time lead of 2-8 to 0-4. The second half started as the first half ended with a goal for the Naomh Brid coming from Paul McGrory and shortly after he added his 3rd of the game with an impressive finish. Buncrana were dead and buried at this stage but the boys drove on and added further points to stretch the lead even further. In the end it was a great team performance and with one league game left hopefully the boys can make the play-off.There is no match this weekend.Naomh Brid crested hoodies are now available to order. These are a perfect Christmas gift for those club enthusiasts who are at home and away. The hoodies cost €40 and anyone interested in ordering should contact Mickey Quinn.

India vs England: Will India’s top-order overcome old issues in Test series?

first_imgIndia’s key batsmen might have got among the runs in their only practice match against Essex before the start of the Test series against England but there those nagging issues with technique persisted.Shikhar Dhawan got out for a golden duck in the first over, Cheteshwar Pujara followed soon after and Ajinkya Rahane, who was promoted to bat at No.4, edged an away moving delivery.India’s top-order found the Essex pacers too hot to handle as Dhawan found an edge to the wicketkeeper off Matt Coles.Considered to be one of India’s batting mainstays in the longest format, Pujara lasted just seven balls.Pujara had played county cricket in England for Yorkshire leading up to this series but hasn’t been in the best of forms. In six matches he amassed just 172 runs at a poor average of 14.33 with a highest score of 41.Second wicket of the day for Coles, as Pujara is caught behind by Foster#ESSvIND pic.twitter.com/wkfz3FfxmPEssex Cricket (@EssexCricket) July 25, 2018The overseas records of Dhawan and Pujara are far from impressive and Rahane, once India’s best bet overseas, has not looked the same batsman for quite some time now.But Rahane has proved his credentials as a batsman in testing conditions. He was surprisingly dropped from the playing XI in the first two Tests in South Africa and India paid a heavy price, losing both matches. Rahane’s replacement Rohit Sharma did little to give his captain any confidence. Rahane was recalled for the third Test and he made an immediate impact to save India from embarrassment.advertisementQuinn has his first wicket of the day with Rahane edging behind to Foster#ESSvINDWatch live here: https://t.co/0WMzSvtsrw pic.twitter.com/KvAdNSNSenEssex Cricket (@EssexCricket) July 25, 2018India will have to battle swing throughout the Test series in England come August 1 and coming out on top against the likes of James Anderson & Co. will not be easy for India’s top order.India have had trouble against swing bowlers and not just away from home but in India as well. The more recent one at home was when Sri Lanka’s pacer Suranga Lakmal rattled the Indian line-up in the Kolkata Test last year.In South Africa too, the story was no different. While both teams struggled in the three-match Test series but every game produced result and South Africa won 2-1.The South African pace battery consisting of Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi preyed on Indian batsmen in a series that produced low totals.England will have their plans set against the Indian batting line-up and that probing line outside the off stump will of course be on the menu.For Australia, Virat Kohli is similar to Steve Smith: Pat CumminsIndia’s best bet at the moment is Virat Kohli, who made his intentions clear with a solid half-century in the warm-up. He endured a torrid time when he toured England in 2014 but has looked a far different and confident batsman since then.Kohli’s confidence as a batsman is sky high at the moment and it will be up to him to inspire his teammates in the gruelling series.Kohli will have to be very careful chasing deliveries outside off stump — something he did in 2014 and was caught behind stumps 6 out of 10 innings.In the warm-up game vs Essex too, Kohli was dismissed chasing an angled delivery bowled by Paul Walter when he edged to first slip for 68.5 Kohli goes for 68 after being caught by Chopra off the bowling of Walter#ESSvINDWatch live here: https://t.co/0WMzSvtsrw pic.twitter.com/dHWjS3WwTcEssex Cricket (@EssexCricket) July 25, 2018Opener Murali Vijay made 50 off 113 balls but he was dropped twice — on 6 at the second slip and on 18 at the first slip. Vijay eventually got out when Walter bowled him in the 41st over.Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Wriddhiman Saha injuries raise several questionsAnother player who has impressed with the bat is KL Rahul. The Karnataka batsman scored 58 off 92 and has looked in sublime touch since coming to England.It’s a long series and India will have to identify their main men to counter and subdue the England pace attack.”I believe KL Rahul has to be given all the support and opportunities possible, for he is potentially India’s next successful overseas batsman to partner Kohli with the bat,” Sanjay Manjrekar wrote in his column for ESPNCricinfo.Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin wants Indian team management to give KL Rahul a chance ahead of out-of-form Pujara.advertisement”KL Rahul is an in-form batsman, he should play in place of Pujara. Rahul is an attacking player and he can score big,” Azharuddin told Sports Tak.The first Test will be played at Edgbaston from August 1 and that will be followed by Test matches at Lord’s (August 9 to August 13), Trent Bridge (August 18 to August 22), The Rose Bowl (August 30 to September 3) and Kennington Oval (September 7 to September 11).last_img read more
