Background of Panel:

     This panel is facilitated by Whitney Wiegel, Agriculture Business Specialist
Lafayette County in the West Central region and Mary Sobba, Agriculture
Business Specialist - Audrain County in the Central region. The panel consists
of 4 producers from Lafayette County. Panel members have been farming for 1
to 9 years, with an average of 5.5 years farming. The panel members own
between 0-240 acres, cash lease 250-600 acres, share lease 0-100 acres,
and lease 0-150 acres of hay/pasture. Primary crop mix is 50/50 corn and
soybeans with very a small amount of wheat and double crop soybean acres.
The producers are 50%-80% no-till. None of the producers work a full time
job outside of agriculture. However, all of the panel members do some custom
work in addition to their own farming operation. This custom work consists of
custom haying, planting, dirt work, spraying, combining, crop insurance selling
and adjusting.

Baseline: The baseline farm consists of corn, soybeans, wheat and double crop soybeans planted on 400 acres of cropland.
