Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jun 26, 2019 SHARE SHARE Crop Conditions and Early Yield Estimates Not Looking Good in Indiana Crop Conditions and Early Yield Estimates Not Looking Good in IndianaWith planting activity coming to an end, the focus now turns to crop development and yield. Northwest Indiana fields are looking the best of anywhere in the state. Purdue Extension corn specialist Dr. Bob Nielsen told HAT that fields in the NW got planted early and the corn looks good, but that is not the case in the rest of the state.“We have some fields that the corn is knee high and growing well and other fields that are a total loss. In some cases, the crop never came up; others died after emergence; and still others have been drowned out by standing water.” He said, on average, the crop around the state is, “not looking good.”Purdue soybean specialist Dr. Shawn Casteel says soybeans in the NW are up and looking okay, but other parts of the state have real problems.“We have areas in East Central Indiana where they really had to mud the crop in and then got hit with heavy rains and are now having to replant.” He added crop development is well behind schedule because of the lack of heat units we have had this spring.As for yield, Casteel says a 10% drop in production is likely for soybeans. Nielsen agrees, seeing an average of about 10% below trend line yields for corn.“But that is an average which means some folks will do well and some will have a total loss.” He feels crops that are struggling now are not likely to improve much this summer.It is a long way to harvest, and both men feel lot can happen between now and then. “There are a lot of folks in a world a hurt right now, and it is not going to get a lot better,” said Nielsen. With pollination not likely to occur until August, it may be well in September before we have any good ideas of yield.

This was Hasler’s first event that she’s participated in with Farm Bureau, but it is leading her to want to do more. Facebook Twitter “I think we had one contestant who had internet issues at one point, but then we even stopped the conversation and said, ‘Okay guys, let’s wait on him to get his internet back,’ and I think that is a testament to ag and who ag kids are. They’re willing to go out of their way to maybe lose some time on something they want to say to make sure other people are included.” By Eric Pfeiffer – May 6, 2020 Purdue College of Ag sophomore Grace Hasler from Columbus, IN won the American Farm Bureau 2020 Young Farmer & Ranchers Collegiate Discussion Meet last week. She qualified for the event by winning the Indiana Farm Bureau Young Farmer Collegiate meet in 2019. Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Sophomore Wins Farm Bureau Collegiate Discussion Meet Hasler won a $3,000 scholarship for her win. She is studying ag communications and ag economics at Purdue. SHARE Indiana Farm Bureau President Randy Kron told Hoosier Ag Today, “Discussion meets have been a part of the Farm Bureau family for a number of years, and I think it helps people learn how to be advocates, how to stand up and have a debate and a discussion. The contest is typically held in person, but due to COVID-19 the competition moved virtual where they discussed cell-based meats and farm labor among other issues. Hasler says she couldn’t believe how well it went online. “Specifically, I’m thinking that I want to look into something policy related. This summer, actually, I’m going to be an intern in Washington, D.C. in the White House. So, I’m going to have a really firsthand look at everything that’s going on behind the scenes.” “Not for a second for me was it ever a contest. I was so excited to be able to talk to so many different people about these issues because there’s so many different outlooks and incredible solutions that we couldn’t find on our own.” “The discussion meets help develop our future young leaders on how to talk about issues…Grace did a phenomenal job.

How Regulation Will Increase Over the Next Decade Next: Fifth Third to Pay $85 Million to Settle Claims of Fraud on FHA-Insured Loans Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship seven years ago, and questions still linger as to how and when to reform the GSEs.The Bipartisan Policy Center hosted a keynote address and panel discussion titled “Housing Fiance Reform: Opportunities and Obstacles of Risk Sharing” on Tuesday.The event highlighted GSE reform and conservatorship, the need for more private capital in the financial system and to transfer risk away from taxpayers and GSEs, focusing on risk sharing, specifically “front-end,” which makes housing finance more sustainable.While the GSEs are experimenting with additional forms of risk sharing, all of them are handled on the back end after the loan is on the GSEs balance sheets.The keynote speakers were Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), member of the Senate Banking Committee and Sen. Mark Warner (D-Virginia), ranking member of the Senate Securities, Insurance, and Investment Banking Subcommittee.The panel included Laurie Goodman, director of the housing finance policy center at Urban Institute; Mike Fratantoni, chief economist at the Mortgage Bankers Association; Kevin Chavers, managing director at BlackRock; Pat Sinks, CEO of Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corp.; and Bob Ryan, acting deputy director of the division of conservatorship at the Federal Housing Finance Agency.Nic Retsinas, senior lecturer in real estate at Harvard Business School, moderated the panel.”Some of our wingers are migrating over to this third amendment thing because it makes it easy not to do anything.”—Senator Bob CorkerIn June, a bipartisan group of Senate Banking Committee members wrote a letter to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) requesting that the agency expand and provide better transparency of the development of the credit risk transfer programs.These programs shift credit risk from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to the private sector, according to a press release.”We supported the direction of the risk sharing language within Title VII of The Financial Regulatory Improvement Act of 2015, and we strongly support the expansion of these transactions, given they provide a vehicle for moving the government out of the first loss position and inform the process for policymakers looking to invite greater private capital into the market,” the senators noted in the letter.“The credit risk transfers are a vehicle for moving the housing market forward by attracting private sector investors, improving access to credit, and reducing taxpayer risk. As such, we ask that you prioritize work with the Enterprises on transactions designed specifically to push out first loss credit risk to the market, and to encourage transparency for investors and the public so that we can all better judge how these transactions impact returns to the Enterprises, costs to the taxpayer, and effects to the health of the broader housing finance system,” the letter stated.Corker cautioned that GSE reform could “be a while and won’t happen in the next year and four months. Some of our wingers are migrating over to this third amendment thing because it makes it easy not to do anything.”The overall consensus of the panelists was that moving forward, the goal should be to strengthen the housing market, build more capital, and enhance credit risk transfers.However, GSE reform could be a lengthy and a difficult issue to overcome as “legislation on this topic remains elusive, the new word for ‘not happening,’” the introductory speaker said.Click here to view a video of the event.

Employers advertising in the classified columns of The Lady ormale-orientated sports magazines could fall foul of changes to discriminationlaws that come into effect in 2005. Another casualty of a tranche of legislation from Europe is likely to be the‘old-boy network’ as restricting recruitment to internal candidates could breakthe law. Under the changes, the burden of proof for fair practice will shift toemployers. This will mean ensuring jobs are advertised in media likely to beseen by both sexes and all races. Recruiters could also find themselves in trouble if they ask forqualifications only available in the UK. Patricia Leighton, professor of European law at Glamorgan University and aspecialist in international and European employment law, said: “Unless anemployer can justify asking for UK qualifications, or qualifications in theEnglish language, because they are vital to the job concerned, they shouldn’tspecify them. And if they pay interview expenses to candidates based in the UKthey must also pay them to candidates based abroad.” Her warnings come in her book Recruiting within the Law, (co-authored withGiles Proctor), which has been published by the Chartered Institute ofPersonnel and Development. “The overall requirement of the law is transparency in the recruitmentprocess,” said Leighton. “It requires the decision-making process tobe open and fair. The law is requiringdecisions to be based on the qualifications, skills and experience ofapplicants, to the exclusion of background and personal characteristics.”
