Hear from the following speakers:


Angie Setzer spent her life on a farm before returning to agriculture from a cash grain perspective. Her years of experience running a diverse and unique direct ship cash grain program, coupled with her current position as the Vice President of Grain for Citizens LLC in Charlotte, Michigan, has given her an in-depth understanding of basis, spreads and futures. This knowledge and experience translates into her ability to help her customers see the flow of cash grain and prices, maximizing margins and returning solid results. "Cash is King" focuses on the developments in the cash market, as well as ways you can take advantage of potential opportunities as they develop. Angie is known as the @GoddessofGrain on Twitter.

Richard Judge has served as the Technical Agronomist for Northeast Iowa since 2007. In this role, he supports the DEKALB and Asgrow brands, as part of the Technology Development and Agronomy team at Monsanto. The main area of focus includes seed, seed applied solutions, traits and crop protection products, but also includes other management decisions that influence crop production in covering the area. He received his B.S. degree from Northwest Missouri State University. 

Farm Journal field agronomist Ken Ferrie oversees the test plots in the Farm Journal Field Test program. Ken applies his extensive, cutting-edge knowledge and his systems approach to farming to the plots. In addition to working with Farm Journal for 20-plus years, he operates an independent agronomic consulting business in central Illinois. A graduate of Illinois State University, Ken credits much of his knowledge of the systems approach to the late Dr. Everett Dennis, who took what Ken had learned in books and "brought it to life." A native of northeast Iowa, Ken has previous experience as a floater operator, crop scout, and maintenance manager over three elevators, coop manager and company agronomist. Ferrie is one of only a few completely independent agronomists in the United States. He is not an employee of any agribusiness company (including Farm Journal), and he doesn't sell anything, accept any commissions or have any hidden agendas.
