World Economic Challenges
As agriculture producers we sometimes can spend too much time focusing on “home” and not enough time on what is happening in the world around us. This can be the case with many entrepreneurs who work tirelessly to build a successful business. “Focus on the tasks that you can control and you will have the greatest impact on your bottom line”, has been drilled in our heads since we all took that leap of faith to put our destiny in our own hands; but can we really be successful without paying close attention to what is happening around us?
There are economic challenges going on around the world, challenges that even the United States and our powerful economy are struggling to overcome. And yet as grain producers, we have been somewhat immune from all of the economic turmoil. Will this continue, or is it our turn as agriculturalists to share in the pain?
