Volatility is the biggest concern in a lot of different ways – not just feed, not just milk, but growing operations not knowing what land values are going to do; not knowing what credit availability is going to be in the next five years.While many of us have plans, I know that there are others that don’t. It’s just scary to think if a lot of different risks occur at the same time, what might happen to some of us.

The diminishing confidence consumers have in the products we provide for them. That alarms me. We need to get back to educating that we are working diligently to provide safe and wholesome products.

The volatility of the industry is most concerning. The future is certainly not certain and so we’re having to take steps to make sure that we have a future for ourselves and our children in the industry.
