$100 Per Acre is a High Profit

December 28, 2017 11:10 AM

Bob Utterback with Utterback Marketing recently sat down with AgDay TV host Clinton Griffiths to discuss commodity and farm markets. He says his own study of the 80's, 90's and today shows that per acre profits historically are not as high as some people think. 

"You look at history, but for a few exceptions, $100 per acre, over all costs, is a high profit," says Utterback.

Watch the video above for more on employing strategies that fit with today's financial environment.

  What the hell have they done to our farmers,?!? Crushed to death. Damn, if my dad gave me 40 acres, we would be set. Selling for profit isn't the big loop. Providing is. PROVIDING.

Lord almighty, down size and maximize. But please don't do what his guy does. He sells implents. $350,000 is impossible. I think he found a way to support him s family. He's not rich. B careful
