Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. US election too close to call! I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 stocks if stock markets crashcenter_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” As I write this, the US election result is hanging in the balance, and the same can be said of FTSE 100 stocks. The index is slightly down, as investors wait to see whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden wins the presidency.The uncertainty could drag on for weeks, and may have to be settled in the US Supreme Court. Markets hate uncertainty, so this could hit FTSE 100 stocks, especially those with outsize exposure to the US. If share prices do fall sharply, I’d consider snapping up these two top dividend and growth companies.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Equipment rental company Ashtead Group (LSE: AHT) earns around 90% of its revenues through US subsidiary Sunbelt, and has benefited from the country’s lengthy bull run. Its stock has soared by 2,338% in that time, making it possibly the most rewarding FTSE 100 stocks of the decade.If stock markets crash, buy sharesThe Ashtead share price plunged during the first Covid-19 lockdown but has more than doubled since March. That’s why we at the Motley Fool urge investors to buy top companies in a stock market crash. You can make outsize profits when the initial panic passes.While FTSE 100 stocks have held steady this morning, Ashtead is down nearly 3%, which may reflect current US uncertainties. I’ll be watching its share price like a hawk, because if the electoral troubles intensify, it could fall further.Frankly, I’d buy Ashtead any time, given its healthy past performance and strong growth prospects. However, following recent strong growth it’s looked a tad expensive, trading at 17.33 times earnings. If US share prices crash and it gets cheaper, I’d fill my boots. My other FTSE 100 stock with hefty US exposure is plumbing and heating products distributor Ferguson (LSE: FERG), which also generates more than 90% of its revenues from across the pond. Ferguson has also done brilliantly over the last 10 years, rising 350%, with dividends on top. Like Ashtead, it has doubled since March.I’d buy both these FTSE 100 stocksThe US stock market has easily outperformed the UK in recent years and, on the day before the election, stood at a two-year high. Every UK investor should have some exposure to the US, and it’s great that one can do this by investing in top FTSE 100 dividend and growth stocks like these two.Like Ashtead, Ferguson is also relatively expensive today, trading at 20.98 times earnings. It has more than justified that valuation, but I’d still rather buy it at a reduced price, should we get a US stock market crash.As far as these two companies are concerned, I don’t think it matters whether we get President Trump or President Biden. Both FTSE 100 stocks have excellent track records and should thrive, whoever’s in The White House. However, short-term political wrangling may present an opportunity to gain exposure at a reduced price. So that’s another reason to keep eyes glued to the US electoral results.

RWC Final – New Zealand v Australia: Guide to the teams

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight Forty-six players will hold the hopes and dreams of Antipodeans tomorrow for the first World Cup final contested between New Zealand and Australia AustraliaIsrael Folau (Age 26. Caps 37)Folau has been nursing by ankle injury during the tournament, which appears to have curtailed his usual rapier breaks in the broken field. Still one of the best operators in the air. Wallabies will hope he comes good for the final.Adam Ashley Cooper (Age 31. Caps 113)The most capped Wallaby back of all time, Ashley-Cooper’s hat-trick against Argentina and try against Scotland have been vital. Almost as important, was his spot-tackle on Dan Biggar when the Wallabies were under siege against Wales.Man in form: Adam Ashley-Cooper has four tries in his last two gamesTevita Kuridrani (Age 24. Caps 30)Quietly spoken, but the 6ft 3in, 16st outside-centre has certainly makes his presence felt on the field. His upper-body strength allowed him to break a Tommy Seymour tackle against Scotland and put Ashley-Cooper away before wrestling over for a try of his own.Matt Giteau (Age 33. Caps 101)Six months ago, he’s was sunning himself in the South of France, now he a Test centurion with the chance of a World Cup winners medal. It’s quite a story. Important second-receiver for Wallabies, his looped pass to Ashley-Cooper was sublime.Bernard Foley (Age 26. Caps 26)A once-in-a-lifetime performance against England was offset by an error-strewn game against Scotland with an intercept and poor kicking game. Still in credit, however and has nailed pressure kicks.Lynchpin: Bernard Foley had an exquisite game against England with 28 pointsWill Genia (Age 27. Caps 65)Another who’s star has dimmed after a poor Super Rugby season, Genia has done the basics but lacked the individual brilliance last seen against the Lions in 2013. In the side due to a lack of better options.David Pocock (Age 27. Caps 54)Pocock has had two knee-reconstructions in between World Cups. This year, playing in an unfamiliar No 8 role, he’s still been the tournament’s top breakdown gatherer with 14. No-one else has registered in double-figures. A titan.Michael Hooper (Age 23. Caps 50)The laid-back 23-year-old with the surfer locks, has already amassed 50 caps in a shorter timeframe than any other Test player. Hooper is whirling-dervish around the field, and pound for pound, no player punches harder in defence.Supercharged: Michael Hooper is an effervescent presence on the fieldScott Fardy (Age 31. Caps 29)The unglamorous member of the Wallaby backrow, Fardy has bled for the cause, and does the unshowy, unseen work at the breakdown and tackle area. Worth his weight in green and gold, however. Immense against Argentina in the semis.Rob Simmons (Age 26. Caps 59)Will be remembered for haring towards the Pumas tryline in open space after an errant Nicolas Sanchez pass but Simmons has been a go-to man in the Wallaby lineout. Hugely experienced for someone so young.Kane Douglas (Age 26. Caps 22)Another member of the rag-bag Wallabies, who descended for all corners of the globe for this World Cup caper. Douglas left Leinster abruptly and has played a key part in Australia’s march to the finalThumbs up: Kane Douglas provides some ‘dog’ in the Wallaby engine roomSekope Kepu (Age 29. Caps 62)Had his card marked by the All Blacks with his opportunistic try against them in The Rugby Championship earlier this year, Kepu has been fundamental to Australia’s ‘bajada’ which roughly translated, means eight-man shove.Stephen Moore (Age 32. Caps 101)Australia’s captain and Test centurion, he’s led the side with maturity, hit his jumpers and provided a sense of calm when Australia were in tight spots, against Wales and Scotland.Scott Sio (Age 24. Caps 15)Arguably the Wallabies most important player, after the scrum wobbled with Slipper against the Pumas, loosehead Sio has been passed fit and his influence could be the difference for the WallabiesKey man: Scott Sio has been a revelation for the WallabiesReplacementsTatafu Polota-Nau (Age 30. Caps 60)Polota-Nau has acted as the perfect impact player for the Wallabies, using his 18st frame to punch holes in tiring defences.James Slipper (Age 26. Caps 73)Struggled badly against the Argentinian front-row, Slipper is more renowned for his tireless workrate around the paddock than for destroying opposition tightheadsGreg Holmes (Age 32. Caps 23)Vastly experienced Queensland Red who can cover both sides of the scrum. He returned to the Wallaby squad after an eight-year absence earlier this year.Dean Mumm (Age 31. Caps 43)The likeable lock made a huge impression at Exeter Chiefs before leaving to pursue a World Cup dream. An athletic presence at the set-piece and in the loose.Chief: Dean Mumm scores a try against UruguayBen McCalman (Age 27. Caps 46)McCalman can play anywhere in the back five and he has provided useful backup to Fardy, Pocock and Hooper. Made some key tackles against Wales to prevent them from scoring in the Pool stages.Nick Phipps (Age 26. Caps 38)Tidy service and a threat around the fringes, Phipps has come on in every game of the tournament, replacing GeniaMatt Tomuaa (Age 25. Caps 30)Gifted second receiver, Tomuaa has many backers for his intelligent lines of running and skills as a distributor. Kept out of the side by Matt GiteauBox-of-tricks: Kurtley Beale is a skilful option from the benchKurtley Beale (Age 26. Caps 59)When Rob Horne was injured early on against England, Beale replaced him and played a key role in sending the host out of the competition, dovetailing with Foley for a superb try. Hugely talented and able to play anywhere in the backline except scrum-half.center_img Face-off: New Zealand and Australia will play each other for the first time in a World Cup final The All Blacks and the Wallabies will contest their first World Cup final ever tomorrow at Twickenham. For those of you who haven’t been following their progress closely, he’s a guide to the men who will be looking to lift the Webb Ellis Cup around 6pm tomorrow evening…New ZealandBen Smith (Age 29. Caps 47)Looks like your average boy next door until he step inside the four tramlines. Fleet of foot and rock solid under the high ball, Smith can switch from 15 to the flanks with ease and has the second most carries (65) in the tournament.Understated excellence: Ben Smith has excelled in a multitude of areasJulian Savea (Age25. Caps 40)‘Nobody stops the ‘bus’. The French backline can attest to Savea’s freakish strength but the man with 38 tries in 40 Test can also play footie. The tournament’s top try-scorer with eight, give him space at your folly.Conrad Smith (Age 34. Caps 93)The thinking man’s centre, Conrad Smith has oiled the wheels of the All Black backline for a decade, where his speed of thought and guile make up for advancing years. Rarely caught out defensively.Ma’ Nonu Age caps (Age 33. Caps 102)Were it not for a greasy ball, Nonu would have scored one of the tries of the tournament against Les Bleus. Nonu may have a power-packed frame but his unselfish offload to Barrett showed his maturity. Sits comfortably as one of the midfeld greats.Final fling: Ma’a Nonu has matured into an all-round player over the yearsNehe Milner-Skudder (Age 24. Caps 7)The boy from Palmerston North, who dallied with rugby league, has been one of the stars of the tournament. A killer step enhanced by an astute kicking game and a varied range of passing from both sides set Milner-Skudder apart as a future superstar.Dan Carter (Age 33. Caps 111)Carter has nothing left to win in the game, save a World Cup final. With 1579 points, he’s the world’s leading points scorer and his offload against France and pressure-releasing drop-goal against the Springboks show his enduring value to the All Blacks.Aaron Smith (Age 26. Caps 46)The world’s best scrum-half has been muted by his elevated standards in his last few games, but his will-to-win and ability to change the game with a snipe around the fringes or cute offload mean he will be given extra attention by ‘Pooper’.Pocket general: Aaron Smith is a dynamic presence at No 9Kieran Read (Age 30. Caps 83)Another who has put his body through the mill for the All Blacks, Read will be earning his 84th cap and he boasts an all-round skill-set that sees him viewed as the best all-round No 8 in world rugby. In the tournament’s top three for breaking the gainline.Richie McCaw (Age 34. Caps 148 )Winning his record 149th and probably final cap, McCaw’s ability to rile supporters simply by taking to the field mark him out as one of the most influential players ever to play the game. Will need all his celebrated powers to nullify David Pocock and Michael HooperJerome Kaino (Age 32. Caps 66)The less celebrated member of All Black backrow, Kaino is happy working in the shadows, but tries again France and South Africa show his importance to the unit’s balance. Seems to thrive at World Cups.Opener: Jerome Kaino scored the first try of the World Cup semi-finalSam Whitelock (Age 27. Caps 72)One hirsute half of the All Black engine room, Whitelock’s work ethic, ability to hit rucks endlessly and do the basics at the set-piece see him as the perfect foil to RetallickBrodie Retallick (Age 24. Caps 46)Reigning World Player of the Year, Retallick is viewed by man as the best lock in the world. At 6ft 9in, he is a prodigiously gifted athlete and has a work rate that sees him making eye-catching carries in the loos, as well as the ugly stuff in the unseen areas.Owen Franks (Age 27. Caps 77)Lost his partner-in-crime Tony Woodcock early in the tournament and has taken on extra responsibility at the coal-face with aplomb. Nothing flashy, Franks simply does the basics.Dane Coles (Age 28. Caps 35)Emerged in the last 18 months from the shadow of Andrew Hore and Keven Mealamu to make the No 2 shirt his own. Hits his jumpers, adds ballast in the scrum and prone to spectacular long-range tries. Loves hanging out on the wing.Ball-carrier: Dane Coles is renowned for his carries in the outfieldJoe Moody (Age 27. Caps 10)Harsh to say he’s this tournament’s Stephen Donald, but Moody is third choice loosehead on the rank and he’s not been exposed once. Even showcase some lesser known skills with an offload to put Kerr-Barlow away for a try against the French.ReplacementsKeven Mealamu (Age 36. Caps 131)Rated by John Smit as the hardest man he ever faced, what Mealamu lacks in stature he makes up in courage and huge experience. A leader in the All Black squad.Ben Franks (Age 31. Caps 46)London Irish bound after the tournament, Franks may get to win a World Cup playing alongside his brother, in the absence of Wyatt Crockett. How special would that be?Charlie Faumuina (Age 28. Caps 32)At 19st and sporting a fearsome beard, Faumuina certainly stands out and his muscular carries in the tight spaces will tire Wallaby defensive resistance late onUnit: Charlie Faumuina is used to smash holes in tight spacesVictor Vito (Age 28. Caps 32)Blessed with more pace than Liam Messam or even Jerome Kaino in the wide channels, the Hurricanes backrow has proved a reliable option from the bench this tournament.Sam Cane (Age 23. Caps 30)The heir to Richie McCaw – no pressure, Sam – Cane captained the side against Namibia, and possesses the cool detachment to get the job done and tread the tightrope of the law book like any good openside.Tawera Kerr-Barlow (Age 25. Caps 19)Kerr-Barlow seems to have usurped TJ Perenara as stand-in for Aaron Smith, and he proved his offensive skills with two tries in three minutes after coming on against FranceSonny Bill Williams (Age 30. Caps 32)Sonny Bill has provided the box-office offloads during the tournament, but also showed his maturity in doing it at the right time. The sight of him sauntering on after 55 minutes will dispirit all but the most resilient defences.Loves an offload: Sonny Bill is some replacement to bring off the benchBeauden Barrett (Age 24. Caps 35)Wickedly gifted utility-back who plays 10 but is quick enough to play on the wing. Scored valuable try against the Boks and will be backed to create some magic off the benchlast_img read more

An Urban Villa / Pitsou Kedem Architects

first_imgArchDaily photographs:  Amit GeronPhotographs:  Amit Geron Save this picture!© Amit GeronIn the 1950s what was known as the “International Style” was highly developed in Tel Aviv.  It developed thanks to architects who studied at the Bauhaus Institute in Germany and who then returned to Israel to continue their work.  One of the architects who led the “International Style” was Dov Carmi.  He designed many, usually large, projects.  One of his more restrained projects was an urban villa in the center of Tel Aviv which he designed in 1951. Save this picture!© Amit GeronIn his design, Carmi expressed his local interpretation of “Free Design” in which there is a  continuous series of spaces created by light and shadow, view and movement without creating one large, single and open space.Save this picture!© Amit GeronMy office executed a massive reconstruction of the structure which included changing the  of the exterior facade and the division of the interior.  The main idea was to preserve the spirit of the original design  whilst implementing a contemporary, independent interpretation of the existing structure and its adaptation to contemporary technologies, materials and knowledge.Save this picture!© Amit GeronDuring the project, we took great care to create an experience of defined, intimate and continuous spaces in a relatively restricted area; and this without detracting from the overall understanding of the entire structure.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe house is simple and minimalistic with the light and the materials creating drama and vitality.  The unique range of materials was preserved throughout the project.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe building’s external facades were painted white and the profiles chosen are decks painted black, similar to the Bauhaus style.  The floor is of off-white concrete.  These monochromatic hues provide the background for the original materials that we decided to preserve.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe central wall that divides the entry space was preserved in its original form, built from hewed, course sandstone constructed in a unique composition.  The floor of the living room is wild, natural limestone of earth hues and changing sections.  The wall and the floor symbolize the building in its original state.  Around them is modern, minimalistic architecture which emphasis the space and the light. The project’s furniture was carefully chosen to complete the overall experience of a living urban villa that conducts a dialogue between two worlds and two separate eras.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessGENETS 3 / Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & PartnersSelected ProjectsGlobal Center for Academic and Spiritual Life / Machado and Silvetti AssociatesSelected Projects Share Area:  370 m² Area:  370 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Israel Save this picture!© Amit Geron+ 17 Share CopyHouses•Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel Architects: Pitsou Kedem Architects Area Area of this architecture project 2012 “COPY” Year:  2012 Projects Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/410694/an-urban-villa-pitsou-kedem-architects Clipboard Year:  An Urban Villa / Pitsou Kedem ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAn Urban Villa / Pitsou Kedem Architects Photographs An Urban Villa / Pitsou Kedem Architects CopyAbout this officePitsou Kedem ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTel Aviv-YafoHousesIsraelPublished on August 05, 2013Cite: “An Urban Villa / Pitsou Kedem Architects” 05 Aug 2013.

In a garden between a dike and farmland VLOT architecten designed a small house. The main goal of the clients was to create a place where they could enjoy the garden more as well as the view over the farmland. This is translated in a wooden structure that is interwoven with its direct surroundings. Existing plants and trees are incorporated in the structure. The entire glazed façade can be opened and in doing so is fading the border between the inside and outside. The cantilever adds to this and creates a gradual transition. Buitenhuis is 54 m2 in size however, when the weather allows it, the entire deck can be experienced as surface area enlarging to 210 m2. The floor is heightened a little from the garden and in doing so the garden continues under the deck.Save this picture!Courtesy of VLOT architectenThe deck cantilevers over an existing ditch, this ditch creates the border between garden and farmland. From this vantagepoint the ever-changing farmland can be observed. The pergola is incorporated within the structure and creates a very direct relation with the garden from the inside. The majority of the rainwater is guided via the roof to the pergola and irrigates the plants and trees. Modular The structure is compiled of laminated larch combined with CLT.Save this picture!PlanThree CLT walls give the column and beam structure its stability. It is a modular structure design on a 1,5-meter grid. Cross-shaped columns are placed on the grid and carry the roof. The modular structure is filled in with six prefabricated elements. The inside floor, the outside floor, the open façade, the closed façade, the inside roof and the outside roof. The structure is deliberately left unfilled in certain spots creating space for plants and trees. Wood, wood, wood This building is made with wood to keep the CO2 impact as low as possible.Save this picture!Courtesy of VLOT architectenWood is used as the larch load bearing structure, larch window frames, timber framing with larch cladding, wood fiber insulation, birch plywood floor and ceiling and padouk decking. The roof is covered with sedum, which works both as a water collector and as an integration of building and nature. The building is engineered to be completely dismountable, only dry connections have been used. Buitenhuis is all-electric and uses electric floor heating, electric boilers and electric cooking. The cantilevers keep the hot summer sun out and let the winter sun in. The elevation in the roof allows hot air to rise upwards. The glass façade can be opened from all sides so the wind can pass through.Save this picture!SectionBuilding without a contractor The building is completely engineered using a BIM-model. The existing swimming pool is measured on site, these physical coordinates were used as a digital reference. 3D models of the steel foundation and wooden load bearing structure have been synced multiple times, optimized and interchanged. The client took the role of contractor upon himself and brought fitting subcontractors together. As architects VLOT was responsible for the ordering all the necessary building materials on time.Save this picture!Courtesy of VLOT architectenUsing the BIM-model to order all the materials as little waste as possible was created, on site there was hardly any leftover materials. The modular design allows for a great deal prefabrication. On site the finished elements were put in place. This was done for the load bearing structure, window frames, all decking boards, floors and ceilings. These were made in a warm and dry workshop and then brought to site.Project gallerySee allShow lessAttic Next to Parque del Oeste / Carolina González VivesSelected ProjectsSurf’s Up!

Theft of donated goods left outside charity shops

Police terror in Milwaukee

first_imgProtest at Red Arrow park in MilwaukeeAug. 22 demands justice for victims of police terror.Photo: Bryan G. PfeiferDontre Hamilton was sleeping in Red Arrow Park in downtown Milwaukee on April 30. Moments later he lay on the ground dead, shot at least 14 times by a Milwaukee cop.Family spokesperson Nathaniel Hamilton, Dontre’s brother, says that before the cop that killed Dontre arrived on the scene, two police officers had previously been called to “check” on him. They surveyed the park and moved on.The officer that killed Hamilton claims he received a voice mail that stated a man was sleeping in the park and that he hadn’t received any information from the other two cops. According to eyewitnesses, this cop attempted to awaken Hamilton with his baton. Hamilton grabbed the baton and defended himself and, during the scuffle, the cop drew his gun and shot Hamilton 14 times.The family is demanding that the killer cop be charged with homicide. Protests continue to demand justice for Hamilton and the numerous victims of police killings and vigilantes in Wisconsin and nationwide.More than four months after the incident, Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn still refuses to release the name of the cop that killed Hamilton. No charges have been filed.The Milwaukee County district attorney’s office, led by John Chisholm, is still sitting on a report they received Aug. 8 from the Wisconsin Department of Justice—Division of Criminal Investigation. A new state law requires reports of investigations into deaths in police custody to be publicly released if criminal charges are not filed against the officers involved.Fighting police terrorSimilar to Ferguson, Mo., where a cop murdered 18-year-old Michael Brown, Milwaukee is a city where Black and Brown communities are confronting brutal austerity pushed by the banks and corporations and their servants, the racist police and politicians.Just as in Ferguson, mass protests have erupted in Milwaukee to demand an end to police terror and the semi-apartheid conditions of oppressed communities there. Press conferences, packing of community meetings and more have also taken place. These follow similar protest activities after the police killing of Derek Williams and the vigilante killings of Corey Stingley in West Allis, Wis., and Bo Morrison in West Bend, Wis.Angela Walker, a community organizer who is running as an independent socialist against Sheriff David Clarke in the Nov. 4 election, said: “We know that mass incarceration is the ‘New Jim Crow’ and Sheriff Clarke’s tactics have cemented Milwaukee’s place in that system. Wisconsin is the worst place in the country to raise a Black child and leads the nation in incarcerating Brown and Black people. I believe that it’s time to rethink criminal justice. It’s time we look at the impact poverty and harsh punitive measures have on crime rates, and advocate for policy changes that will increase opportunity for everyone in our community.”There is growing resistance and solidarity, especially between Black and Brown youth/students in Milwaukee, with support from poor and working-class whites.The next major protest will be on Sept. 26 at Milwaukee Area Technical College outside the S-Building across from the Municipal Court.The organizers of the “End Police Brutality, Mass Deportations, and Mass Incarcerations” protest state: “Join us as we unite as one commUNITY against the Police state here in Milwaukee, and in the United States of America. We all deserve the right to live a life without fear of the police or anyone else harming, separating or killing our families.” (tinyurl.com/p9mj5vb)Call Chisholm’s office to demand the release of the name of the killer cop of Dontre Hamilton and that the cop be charged: 414-278-4646 and/or email: [email protected] For ongoing updates and information about protests against police terror and occupation in Wisconsin: www.wibailoutpeople.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Farm Economy Outlook Improving

first_img The new year is bringing some optimism for the farm economy, thanks to multiple factors. Farm Bureau Chief Economist John Newton says one of those factors is trade with China, which could reach near record levels.”Recently released data from the U.S. Census Bureau show that preliminary exports to China during November [are] nearly $5 billion. So, when you add that to the existing total, we’ve now sold about $22.5 billion to China. So, that’s significant progress and a step in the right direction. We’re unlikely to hit the Phase One targets, but we could be close to record exports to China this year.”Meanwhile, the latest COVID-19 relief package includes roughly $13 billion in additional support for farmers and ranchers.“It puts a $20 per-acre payment for crops that were included in the CFAP-2 program, it includes support for contract livestock and poultry producers, it includes a supplemental payment for cattle producers, and it also includes no less than $1.5 billion for food distribution programs, so it allows USDA to continue the Farmers to Families Food Box Program.”Add to that the ongoing market rally and Newton says the farm economy outlook is improving.“We’ve seen the market get pretty tight in terms of supply over the last few months, especially with South American weather concerns. We’ve seen soybean and corn prices rally pretty significantly. And I think moving into 2021 with prices where they are, we’re certain to see an expansion in soybean acres, maybe corn buys some acres this spring. So, the outlook of the farm economy has certainty improved since late July and August.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleStabenow Expected to Lead Senate Ag CommitteeNext articleFarm Economy Outlook Improving on the HAT Friday Podcast NAFB News Service By NAFB News Service – Jan 7, 2021 Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Economy Outlook Improving Facebook Twitter Farm Economy Outlook Improving SHARElast_img read more
