Thursday and Friday, November 24th and 25th, 2022 Programs

***No video interviews for our holiday programs on Thursday and Friday. Markets were open for a shortened session on Friday as well. Below are links to our Thursday and Friday episodes with various interviews and market information.***


Markets were closed for the Thanksgiving holiday; we wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving and holiday weekend.

On Thursday’s show, we listen back to interviews from the NAFB Convention last week in Kansas City. We talk ag policy and more in segment one with Will Stafford of CHS.

In segment two, ethanol is on our mind as we hear from Brian Jennings with the American Coalition for Ethanol and Robert White with the Renewable Fuels Association.

In segment three, we discuss swine health with Dr. Paul Sundberg of the Swine Health Information Center before wrapping up the show with Eric Scherder of Corteva and Don Gehrls of Pioneer.


On Friday, an abbreviated market session led to a little bit of late selling in Chicago and KC wheat. Otherwise, it was quiet and choppy in low volume action as corn was up a bit and soybeans down a few cents. Livestock drifted lower as well on the day as we head to a normal trading week next week.

In segment one, we discuss Friday’s market action with Arlan Suderman of StoneX. Then in segment two we go back to last week’s NAFB Convention in Kansas City for an interview with David Widmar of Agricultural Economic Insights to discuss the markets as a whole. Kevin McNew, Chief Economist at FBN, joins us in segment three from last week’s NAFB Convention to provide his perspective on the markets. And we wrap with Tom Haag, President of the NCGA, to discuss issues impacting corn farmers.
