Gulke: Farmers Might Get A Christmas Present From New Tax Reform

December 23, 2017 04:00 AM

“Soybeans continue to be under pressure this week on better weather along with improving crop conditions in South America, which in turn is less than positive for U.S. agriculture when it comes to exports,” says Jerry Gulke as he spoke with host Pam Fretwell on the Weekend Market Report.

When asked what impact he thinks the recently passed tax bill will have on agriculture, Gulke responded “a rising tide lifts all ships according to the old saying, so if the U.S. economy gets better and is half as good as Trump thinks it will be, that will pull up a lot of other countries too. When you make more money, you eat more calories, and that’s good for agriculture, not only here in the United States, but for the global economy as well.”


Gulke will be the closing keynote speaker at the 2018 Top Producer Seminar, which takes place Jan. 23-26 in Chicago. His presentation, titled, "Looking Beyond Our Backdoor: Today’s Grain Markets" will be moderated by Fretwell and will provide his expert market commentary and insights. Reserve your spot now.
