Facebook Twitter SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 24, 2018 Facebook Twitter Many farm groups have responded after President Donald Trump and USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue announced the $12 billion program to assist farmers in response to trade damage. Indiana Farm Bureau President Randy Kron said, “While the president’s announcement today of $12 billion in agricultural assistance will provide temporary relief to Hoosier farmers, the importance of trade and open markets is essential to supporting our farmers’ bottom-line. Farm income has dropped about 50% over the last 5 years. Recent drops in corn and soybean prices compound the real dollars lost to Indiana farmers, their families, rural communities and our state’s economy. The administration’s announcement of the assistance package is confirmation that our concerns have been heard but there is still work to do. We will continue to express the importance of reliable trade agreements to Indiana’s representatives in Congress.”North Dakota farmer Kevin Skunes, president of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), said, “NCGA appreciates the Administration’s recognition of the harm to producers caused by tariffs and trade uncertainty. The fine print will be important. We know the package won’t make farmers whole but look forward to working with USDA on the details and implementation of this plan…Corn farmers prefer to rely on markets, not an aid package, for their livelihoods. NCGA will continue to advocate for Administrative actions including: rescinding the section 232 and 301 tariffs; securing NAFTA’s future; entering new trade agreements; allowing for year-round sales of higher ethanol blends such as E15; and implementing the Renewable Fuel Standard as intended. We believe these additional actions, which would come with no cost, would result in stronger market demand for farmers.”John Heisdorffer, American Soybean Association (ASA) President, said, “U.S. soybean producers want to see President Trump succeed in meeting his trade campaign goals of achieving better trade deals and greater market access. And, we appreciate that he has recognized our loss in exports and lower prices and provided some immediate relief. However, producers cannot weather sustained trade disruptions.” He added, “Our best course of action is to expand other markets and develop new ones to buy the soybeans we’re not selling to China. This means finishing the NAFTA negotiations as soon as possible so we can begin talks on new bilateral agreements with other key soybean markets including Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Groups React to USDA $12B Aid Program SHARE Farm Groups React to USDA $12B Aid Program Previous articleHouse Vote on Guest Worker Bill in DoubtNext articleBraun: “I’d Love to be on Ag Committee” Hoosier Ag Today
Local NewsBusiness Report: Oil giants’ goals require $30B Permian investment WhatsApp Facebook Facebook Rattler Midstream: 4Q Earnings Snapshot A rig hand works on a CanElson oil drilling rig in Andrews County in this 2015 file photo. Snap Inc. to Participate in the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference 2021 Pinterest Twitter Octopus Energy U.S. to Discount Customers’ Bills by as Much as 90% Oil giants Exxon Mobil, Chevron and Royal Dutch Shell must ramp up spending to hit growth targets in the booming Permian Basin, spurring more consolidation and inflated oilfield services costs in the area, according to a new report released today from IHS Markit.The supermajors, as they are known, will need to invest nearly $30 billion through 2020 to achieve strong growth projections, IHS found. That could result in higher costs for the oilfield services that drive Odessa’s economy, which supermajors could help fund by tapping their cash-flow generated outside the U.S.“The supermajors will further stress the Permian service sector, and as costs escalate, the increased execution risk may be too great for these smaller companies to overcome, possibly forcing them into mergers or sales,” said Sven del Pozzo, director of energy equity research and analysis at IHS Markit, in a statement.The report forecast the three Big Oil companies will spend a combined total of around $8 billion this year. That would increase to about $10 billion in 2019 and $11 billion in 2020.Since 2017, the performance of wells belonging to the three supermajors has been catching up to the smaller independent oil companies that pioneered the boom. But the supermajors could buy companies and acreage to support their targets.IHS pointed to Permian-focused Concho Resources’ recent purchase of RSP Permian exemplifying the rationale at play. Concho paid a premium for the company, a smaller competitor drilling productive wells on acreage that matched up with Concho’s.“Prior to the deal, industry service-cost inflation was already apparent, as was the benefit of scale,” del Pozzo said.By 2020, IHS projected Exxon would invest about $5 billion in the Permian Basin in 2020, the greatest amount among the three supermajors. The company earlier this year announced plans to triple daily production in the region to more than 600,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2025.“If truly committed to the Permian Basin, the traditionally return-focused supermajors will have to grow accustomed to a rising cost-basis in order to build their core, operated-acreage positions that currently do not suffice to meet medium- to long-term growth plans,” del Pozzo said.

To address this lack of accountability, “[civil] society groups’ main strategy is to name the mining companies linked with the event.” They then spread this information using “the global news media to make the general public and the financial markets aware of the human rights abuses.” CW: Violence. “[Suits] against multinationals for human rights abuses are exceedingly rare”. Of the 354 assassination events recorded over the last 20 years by the study, the majority took place in the Philippines, Peru, and Colombia. The majority of companies associated are headquartered in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. A study conducted in part by Oxford economics professor Nathaniel Lane has analysed alternative frameworks of accountability for multinational companies, rooted in civil society. These include ‘naming and shaming’ campaigns by human rights organisations as well as media coverage associating an event and a company. The case study used looks at the effect of reporting the assassination of environmental activists in association with mining companies in terms of the change in the stock price of the company. The study found that “assassinations events lead to negative abnormal returns for firms associated with violence.” In the 10 days following a reported assasination event, the study calculated a media loss in market capitalization of over 100 USD. The effect was larger on the 5th to 10th days, attributed to the time needed for “market participants … [to] gather additional information” and estimate the monetary “[price]” of a tarnished reputation and legal damages. The recorded effects were also larger on days with “low media pressure”, in which there were fewer other large “newsworthy events”. The study acknowledges that the reactions are more strategically then morally motivated, writing that, in the past, hedge funds have “not shied away from investing in companies associated with regimes responsible for severe human right violations”. The study hopes to use its results as a foundation for further research on the role of “civil society in governing transnational corporate activities at the global periphery.”
A Ginsters pasty or slice, displayed in the chiller cabinet of a petrol station, may not immediately conjure up thoughts of the Cornish countryside carrots and potatoes plucked fresh from the soil or local cheese producers but perhaps it should.The West Country firm started making handmade pasties in a small bakery back in 1969, and although it’s now one of the best-known producers of convenience pastry products, it has kept the values of good quality and local ingredients close to its heart.The business grew in the early 1970s and joined Samworth Brothers, which is made up of 14 businesses, in 1977. However, Ginsters says its values, which run through the whole of Samworth’s empire, are pivotal to what it does. It is big on family values and is keen to keep people in the business, with nearly all its staff permanent employees. It employs around 700 staff in total, around 500 of whom work at the Callington site.Product qualityBrand communications manager Larry File says Ginsters aims to ensure the quality of the products is preserved throughout the production process. “We have significantly built up our local sourcing over the past five to six years,” he explains, and the firm is set to purchase a record £12m-worth of fresh ingredients from local farms this year. “We even grow wheat in Cornwall to produce our own flour. Currently around 20% of the flour is milled from Cornish wheat and it’s something we’re looking to expand.” The weather may have caused problems in the past, but the firm has dispelled the myth that it is impossible to grow wheat in that part of the country.File says the business has worked hard with local suppliers to grow the amount of produce sourced locally as the business has increased in size. Issues such as a lack of pig farmers in the West Country have meant the firm cannot source as much local pork as it would like, but 70% of its beef is from Cornwall. It sources many of its vegetables, including potato, swede and onions, from Hay Farms, Torpoint, only 15 miles from the bakery. Bocaddon Farm supplies it with soft cheese, and the Davidstow Creamery is its source for Davidstow cheddar. Meanwhile, Jaspers of Treburley, only six miles down the road, supplies the majority of its beef.Ginsters has also worked closely with local agricultural college Duchy, to look at what type of potato will grow best in the area.In addition to a continued focus on ingredients, the firm has also been increasing the automation at its Lynher bakery in Callington thereby decreasing non value-added labour. The site produces over 3.5m units per week. However, head of brand mar-keting Andy Valentine says the bakery does have the capacity to produce up to 4m a record it expects to hit in the coming weeks. It has invested over £20m in automation in recent years, in order to lower the cost of production, including the recently completed commissioning of a Schubert pick-and-place machine a £1.2m investment. “We recently replaced one of our travelling ovens and will look to replace the other two in the near future, as we know now that we could get improved efficiency,” explains William Wakeham, process development manager, adding that, when he visits trade shows, he is always looking at what the next big thing in ovens will be.Wakeham says the firm is not tied to an A-list of suppliers, which gives it more flexibility. One of the many benefits of dealing with local suppliers, he says, is it that stock isn’t held for a long time. It has about 24/36 hours meat supply at any one time, and the only ingredient it freezes are herbs and spices.A £250m brandThe pie and savoury snacks category is valued at £1.06bn and is growing at 2.2% according to the latest figures from Nielsen (52 weeks to 20 March 2010). Ginsters is the largest brand in that category, with a market share of 11%, and the retail value of the brand is worth approximately £250m.Customer marketing controller David Bacon says the category may be steeped in heritage, but is driven by convenience. “Recently it has been the slices that have been driving the market,” he says. “Pasties, hot pies, pork pies and sausage rolls are also driving growth, but quiche sales are in decline.”Ginsters has initiated a full strategy review, which is still under way. The initial findings have identified trends that have affected the category: for example ’eating in is the new going out’; online retailing; and the growth of the elderly population. Bacon says that retailers are preferring to opt for, say, £1 individual pies, rather than deals on larger pies, “which has really ripped the bottom out of the ’planned meal’ occasion” for example quiches or large box pies.The research has prompted the firm to invest in NPD in the snacking and sharing category, which research established was the biggest occasion, with a range of new products launched last month in time for the summer (see British Baker, 7 May, pg 8). These include snack-sized two-packs of mini Ploughmans pork pies, sausage rolls and its original Cornish pasties and a new Sweet Chilli bar, a new Meat Feast Slice, a Fiery Cheese wrap and a BBQ Beef wrap. It has also made recipe improvements to its Southern Style Chicken wrap.Valentine says that, when it comes to making the snacking occasion work at the fixture, implementing it correctly is key. “There exist some real challenges that need to be overcome. For example, the category needs to work out how to shout about the good things, such as local ingredients and no nasties,” he explains.Although Ginsters claims to have been the first business in the industry to sign up to the GreenPalm initiative, Valentine says it’s not something it actively promotes to consumers. However, when the time comes that it’s possible to manufacture all Ginsters products with sustainably produced palm oil, then that will be something the company will definitely want to shout about, he says.Marketing vision’Properly filling the nation with real honest food’ is Ginsters’ long-term brand vision, says File, who explains the firm will be developing its 2008/09 message of local ingredients this year and its recently relaunched website now highlights this message. It will also be rolling out the British flag more on front-of-pack, says Valentine.Despite the fact that products such as Cornish pasties and sausage rolls are often referred to as ’trad fare’, Valentine says he doesn’t want Ginsters’ products to be pigeon-holed as that, explaining that the company’s new product development is much more forward-looking than that reference suggests.
