US to spend $4.7B to aid farmers
Soybean farmers will be the primary beneficiaries of a $4.7 billion program to offset trade losses, The Wall Street Journal reports. The U.S. Department of Agriculture will make payments to the farmers under the program, which is intended to counter the impact of Trump administration tariffs and counter-tariffs by other countries, especially China. The USDA will:
- Make $3.6 billion in payments to soybean farmers
- Buy up to $1.2 billion of food from farmers
- Spend $200 million on trade promotion
Starting Sept. 4, the USDA’s Farm Service Agency will administer a program to provide payments to corn, cotton, diary, hog, sorghum, soybean and wheat farmers. Soybean farmers will get the bulk of the money, $3.7 billion. Pork producers will get $290 million, while cotton farmers will receive $277 million.

Cornell University's College of Agriculture recently published an interesting article on cow environmental stress. It's the summer in many parts of the world. People are hot....and so are cows.
The article, authored by Curt Gooch, states:
"A visit on July 4th to a dairy farm that employs aggressive fan cooling for their dairy cows reminded me how much cows really need direct evaporative cooling (sprinklers) to mitigate heat stress when summertime heat waves hit. Cows lying in their sand beds were aggressively panting and drooling saliva with every breath. While sprinklers cannot be located to cool cows when resting in stalls, they can do a great job at the feed bunk, holding areas, and return alleys. "
Keys to successful sprinkler systems include:
- ample water supply, up to 50 gallons per cow per day
- adequately sized pipe to deliver required water to sprinkler manifold pipes
- low pressure within manifold pipes - about 20 psi
- nozzles located so that cows' backs and upper flanks are soaked to the skin in about two minutes of water application
- fans located over feedbunk to remove cow-evaporated moisture from immediately around the hair surface for the balance of a 10 to 15 minute wetting cycle
- an appropriate system controller with proper settings

At 12:01 am on July 6th, the US/ China trade war officially began.
In an article from the New York Times,
"A trade war between the world’s two largest economies officially began on Friday morning as the Trump administration followed through with its threat to impose tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese products, a significant escalation of a fight that could hurt companies and consumers in both the United States and China.
The penalties, which went into effect at 12:01 a.m., prompted quick retaliation by Beijing. China said it immediately put its own similarly sized tariffs on an unspecified clutch of American goods. Previously, the Chinese government had said it would tax pork, soybeans and automobiles, among other goods."
For the full article, go to:
"All About Feed Magazine" presented the findings of "The Agricultural Outlook 2018-2027", a report presented on July 3rd in Paris by OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) and FAO (Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations).
The report predicts global agricultural and fish production is to grow by approximately 20% over the coming decade, with considerable variation across regions. Strong growth is expected in Sub Saharan Africa, South and East Asia, and the Middle East and North Africa. Production growth in the developed world is expected to be much lower, especially in Western Europe.

On June 23rd, the Wall Street Journal reported "investors are likely to get hit before the U.S. and Chinese economies feel the pain, meaning the trade feud could escalate."
"The U.S. has already put tariffs on steel and aluminum and will add a 25% tariff on $50 billion in Chinese imports starting next month. China is matching the U.S. tariff for tariff. These actions have sent U.S. steel prices higher and U.S. soybean prices lower."
Today, The American Feed Industry Association has updated its members on the US/ China potential trade war.
In part, AFIA's International Trade and Pet Food Committee stated in mid June, the US announced its intent to impose two sets of tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese goods in response to China's unfair trade practices related to the "forced transfer of American technology and intellectual property theft" pursuant to Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974. China has since announced retaliatory 25% tariffs on a selection of U.S. goods. Subsequently, in response, President Trump ordered the US Trade Representatives to identify $200 billion worth of Chinese goods for an additional 10% tariffs.
The first set of US proposed tariffs on Chinese goods are set to take effect on July 6th.
China's first list of tariffs on US goods will also be implemented on July 6th.
Pet food is listed on the Chinese list of US products that will be subject to 25% tariff. The tariff is currently 4%.
Import duty will also be raised on US soybeans.Continue Reading
