“Prices received by Wisconsin farmers in September showed both minor and major changes from what they were in August or in September of 2014, according to a report by the Wisconsin field office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service. Only minor changes occurred in the price of corn for the two comparative periods. The September average price of $3.58 per bushel was down by 9 cents from August but up by 5 cents from September of 2014. Soybean prices, however, posted more significant changes to the downside. The September price of $8.62 per bushel was down by 95 cents from August and by $2.58 from September of 2014. For oats, the September average price of $1.91 bushel was 12 cents more than in August but $1.70 per bushel lower than for September of 2014.” ~ Wisconsin State Farmer
