Midwest crops lost to flooding could profit area farmers

Farms in Door and Kewaunee Counties could benefit from feed crops lost to flooding in Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and other Midwest states.  High waters have caused over $1-billion in grain and livestock losses.  This is the time when farms in those affected areas would begin spring planting.  Flood damage has delayed that.  Kewaunee County UW Extension Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says that could create an opportunity for area farms to make money from surplus corn and soybeans now in storage.



Bjurstrom says surplus crops could be sold for livestock feed or as food for human consumption.  China is a huge market for U.S. soybean producers.
