Undoubtedly, this year is going to be challenging. Experts recommend five steps to help put yourself in the best position possible.

  1. Consider being a contrarian. If all of your neighbors are switching to corn consider planting more soybeans.
  2. Follow the U.S. dollar, as it will dictate competitiveness for U.S. commodities in a global market.
  3. Capitalize on selling opportunities quickly, as there might only be a few profitable price points throughout the year.
  4. Pencil out your actual living expenses. Don’t just guess. If you think they’re $50,000 annually and find out they’re $70,000, it’s time to make some changes.
  5. Take time for your mental health—farming is what you do, not who you are. Don’t let your success or failure at what you do change what you think of yourself.
