Agriculture has a bit of a skip in its step as 2021 begins. Tailwinds include higher commodity and livestock prices, greater exports, continued low interest rates, and stabilized financial conditions. Headwinds for 2021 include the ongoing drought, the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, and higher feed costs for livestock producers. The year will have its own story to tell when 2021 ends. Here’s to hoping it’s a happy story for Nebraska agriculture.
