  • Prevented Planting

    Excessive rains and flooding in parts of Texas raise concerns

    With the heavy rains in Central and South Texas, TCP has visited with USDA-Risk Management Agency concerning planting dates, which is March 31 for corn in some portions of the state. If you have questions, please contact TCP and we will assist you however we can. At this time, it appears there will be no extension of planting dates or waiving of the late planting clauses for this crop year. The moisture has been a blessing for producers and the soil has benefited from all the moisture. In recent years, much of South Texas had experienced issues from not having enough moisture to plant and now we are in the exact opposite position. Access the RMA prevented planting fact sheet for more information.

  • A Harvest Against Hunger

    In addition to their much-loved weekend backpack program, the Amarillo branch of Snack Pak 4 Kids recently went a little further in their quest to feed hungry children. Early in the morning on Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014, volunteers gathered in Wildorado at the farms of David Cleavinger and his wife, Jackie, as well as Bill Gruhlkey and his wife, Timma, who generously gifted in-the-field sweet corn to the organization. Cleavinger said the 2 acres would yield about 40,000 ears of corn. With 10 ears per bag, that\'s enough bags for 4,000 families!

Competing for Dollars

Beef is far from a loser in the daily race for buyers at meat counters across the country. It's not exactly the big winner either. Beef, after all, is not a sprinter when it comes to markets. It's more of a long distance competitor. To see where beef is headed, you have to look at the spreads.
