Buchanan Co. farmer says corn supply outpaces demand

 

Corn harvest has been late and long this year. But, farmers are not disappointed on yield, only on price.

Greg Alber farms in Buchanan County, near Independence, Iowa. Alber serves on the Iowa Corn Promotion Board, but his focus since April has been growing his crop. He’s given up on getting the moisture down on the crop.

Alber says we don’t have enough demand to meet the supply. He adds he is not afraid to put on a coat and tie and meet with international buyers face-to-face.

Greg Alber hopes to be done with harvest by Thanksgiving, weather permitting.
