Kim Anderson Talking Canola Price Outlook on SUNUP- Plus Check the Program Lineup For This Weekend

Thu, 21 Apr 2011 20:56:25 CDT

Kim Anderson Talking Canola Price Outlook on SUNUP- Plus Check the Program Lineup For This Weekend With over a hundred thousand acres of canola planted in Oklahoma last fall, farmers are not just growing a rotational crop for wheat, they are also looking at a crop that can make them some money- and OSU Extension Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson says that he sees a stable, strong market for canola, based on demand for oilseed crops domestically and internationally. Anderson told Lyndall Stout for the upcoming SUNUP program that will air this Saturday on OETA that what farmers are really interested in is a crop that can provide a profitable return on their investment- and winter canola seems to fit that bill.

Dr. Anderson also talked briefly about the current wheat market, which he continues to regard as high- and said with all of the uncertainty regarding production, this is a year to not pull the trigger on marketing any more of the crop until harvest.

You can see Kim Anderson with Lyndall Stout on this weekend's SUNUP- or you can get the audio version of a sneak peak by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.

Besides the regular Kim Anderson segment, Lyndall and her team tell us they have a great Easter weekend lineup- including:

SUNUP visits with producers attending a session of the 2011 Winter Canola Field Tour in Kingfisher County.

Then, Josh Bushong discusses insect concerns and the quality of this year’s canola in fields around the state.

In the Mesonet report, Al Sutherland and Gary McManus update soil moisture depletion levels and the widening drought across the region.

Derrell Peel has specifics on the latest cattle market reports.

Glenn Selk offers timely drought advice on early weaning and herd downsizing in Cow-Calf Corner.

Damona Doye explains the Intensive Financial Management and Planning Support (IFMAPS) program and how Oklahoma producers can access free and confidential financial advice.

In Shop Stop, Randy and Wayne share important reminders about hydraulic jack safety.

Finally, Dave Freeman tells us how to recognize signs a mare is ready to foal and whether she’s having difficulties. Plus, advice on caring for a foal in the first hours of life.

SUNUP airs Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. on your local OETA channel.
