The Ag Expos bring you the information you need for your farm business.  Regional and local experts will be available to discuss the market outlook, new products, services and technologies. We're working on the detailed agenda and will publish it here soon.
Farmers can attend a 3.5-hour private pesticide applicator workshop for recertification instead of taking a test. The workshops in this area include:
CALEDONIA • JANUARY 27 (Tuesday) • 12:30 p.m. • Good Times Restaurant
WYKOFF • FEBRUARY 3 (Tuesday) • 12:30 p.m. • Wykoff Community Center
ST. CHARLES • FEBRUARY 10 (Tuesday) • 12:30 p.m. • Community Center
PRESTON • FEBRUARY 19 (Thursday) • 10 a.m. • Fillmore County Office Building
RUSHFORD • FEBRUARY 23 (Monday) • 12:30 p.m. • Loken's Rushford Inn
Testing (online or mail-in) remains an option. The on-line test, mail-in test and recertification workshops all cost $50. If you are not currently certified you cannot become certified by attending a recertification workshop. For more information, click this link to the University of Minnesota Extension website or call their farm information line at 800-232-9077. 
With markets continuing to trend down, we encourage you to lock in your minimum price. Lock in what you need and protect the upside with an option. Don’t give away your corn. If you have to sell your corn, spend a little money on an option, leaving room for the upside potential. If you’re storing your corn at home, don’t let it devalue, we can lock in the futures for next summer and buy an option. You can’t lose more than you invest in the option, leaving the upside potential. Please call Greg Boldt, 507-864-7733, if you have questions. We're here to help you understand your options.
FCE has grain services for all your needs — storage, competitive drying rates and marketing programs. A new bin at Spring Grove has sped up receiving there. The new bins at Rushford South Fork continue to take pressure off our feed and grain facility in downtown Rushford. We still have some space available, so give us a call at 507-864-7733 to learn more about your contract and storage options.
In cold weather calves require more dietary energy just for maintenance of body condition. We have calf milk replacers and starters specifically formulated to meet the needs of your calves and heifers this winter. Contact FCE Calf & Heifer Specialist Krystal Regan, 563-794-0778 or, to discuss your calves’ nutritional needs.
Order now to make sure you have the seed that will work best in your fields when planting season rolls around. FCE is once again offering pre-pay discounts on seed ordered by 12/31. Call your agronomist or an agronomy location (Rushford, Houston, Spring Grove) for pricing and discounts.
