The 2012 record high cash receipts for corn brought much optimism among corn farmers and associated businesses. However, more recent years have fostered feelings of concern with many reflections about other challenging times, such as those experienced in the 1980’s. Among producers such feelings are usually negative, but when properly channeled can lead to positive business actions, such as cost reductions and increased efficiencies.
