Flex Lease Insurance Guest: Guest Bio Who is Common Ground IO? What are their offerings? Who is Hudson Crop? History, Mission, Vision Hudson is a market-leading specialty insurer that offers a wide range of property and casualty insurance products to corporations, professional firms, and individuals through retailers, wholesalers and program administrators How did this partnership come about? Flex lease insurance How it works: If… Commodity prices rally after you have contracted grain, or Commodity prices fall after your Flex Lease Agreement is negotiated based on current market rates and you didn’t contract your grian hoping for a price increase later in the season And… Your Flex Lease Agreement has a bonus clause that you must pay more to your landlord in rent due to higher revenues Then… Flex Lease Insurance covers the difference from the agreed upon rental rates in your agreement and the new rental rate whether due to a bonus or a commodity price fluctuation How has progress come? What impact will this project have on ethanol production in the midwest Why is it such a focus now? How will this help farmers? Advantages of flex leases The actual rent paid adjusts automatically as yields or prices fluctuate The avoidance of committing to a fixed rent amount at a time when many production and market variables remain unknown Risks are shared between the owner and the tenant, as are profit opportunities Operator - some level of risk protection should costs rise or revenue disappoint Landowners are paid in cash - they do not have to be involved in decisions about crop inputs or grain marketing Landowner - an opportunity to benefit financially from higher yields and favorable commodity prices How are the producers getting paid? How are flex leases more beneficial/different than other leases? Disadvantages Landowner - a flex lease can increase their exposure to risk (compared to a fixed cash lease agreement) Operator - higher revenue from increased yields and/or prices is shared with owner Both parties - flex leasing greatly increases the contract’s complexity Other Questions How are you marketing this to producers to bring them in? Is there more risk doing a flex lease? What other means are suggested in adopting to reduce the risk? With a flexible lease, how is the payment for rent in advance determined? Does it change the final payment that depends on the actual prices and yields? Determining Price Expected revenue trigger = expected county yield * projected price * trigger election To establish a trigger, the producer may elect the following deductible options: 110%, 115%, 120%, and 125% Final revenue = Final county yield * harvest price What date is used when the crop may be sold later Are forward contract prices included? What are you most excited for in the future? Flex Lease What challenges may the flex lease face ahead? What can we and our listeners do to help? What did we miss? What does success look like to you?

Noah Young grew up the son of two school teachers. Farming was not something he ever thought of doing for a career, but growing up in central Nebraska, it’s tough to not be impacted by agriculture in some way. He grew up helping farmers and seeing how food was produced and the impact agriculture had on his community. From a young age he was intrigued by the fact that his neighbors were feeding the world but the majority of Americans knew nothing about it. The average farmer in the U.S. feeds over 155 people while making up less than 2% of the population. So after receiving his degree in Agribusiness, Young began his journey into the unknown world of farming. When he started “Shiloh Farm” in April of 2020 his goal was to pursue a simpler life for his family. With no experience raising livestock, gardening, or raising chickens, he decided to start a homestead from the ground up. His mission was to learn as much as he could about agriculture while sharing his journey and experience with others. He wanted to give people the chance to see what farming was like up close. His opportunity to share his journey with others came much sooner than expected. In July 2020, his goal of educating people came to fruition when he started using TikTok. With daily facts about chickens, ducks, vegetables, sheep, and anything agriculture related, he finally found the perfect platform to educate others about the joys of farming. This blossomed into a wonderful opportunity to share agriculture with over 125,000 followers. Whether it’s telling people that all chicken eggs start out white or that you’ve been opening pineapples wrong your whole life, these videos have been making people laugh and learn. If there’s a bright spot to this Pandemic it’s that millions of people began growing gardens, buying chickens, and looking for ways to be more self reliant. If they did not have the opportunity to do that, they most certainly began supporting local farmers and ranchers. Looking for ways to support small family businesses as much as possible. That meant a lot of people were in his exact position. Wanting to be self sustainable but having no clue how to start! By sharing his experience with others he hopes to make a positive difference in the homestead community. Future plans involve expanding the farm in hopes that they can have a greater impact on the community and produce food for their neighbors. Young is hoping to add a greenhouse, raised beds, and over 500 chickens in 2021. As well as the addition of sheep, goats, turkeys, and whatever rescue animals they can find! While he is certainly excited to expand the homestead, his ultimate goal is to continue educating people on where their food comes from. There is such a big difference between farm fresh local produce and something you buy at the grocery store. Did you know the apple you buy at a supermarket is on average over 14 months old? His hope is that by sharing these facts he can grow a following so that more people can see that there is so much more to farming than what people see on T.V. At the end of the day if he can get 1 person to get chickens or to start a garden, it will all be worth it. Noah Young is one of those people who believes sharing knowledge is not about giving people something, or getting something from them. Sharing knowledge occurs when people are genuinely interested in helping one another develop new capacities for action; it is about creating a learning process.

Cattle Barns Bill Rubis – Vice President at TenCorp, INC In 2010, they designed and built our first deep-pit cattle barn. Exploring the profitability of feeding cattle in confinement settings. As the cattle production industry has evolved over the years, there has been a significant shift to feeding cattle indoors.Just like no two cattle operations are the same, confinement buildings come in all shapes and sizes. Typically, they can be divided into a few broad categories. One major difference is the manure handling style: deep-pit In deep-pit buildings the cattle are on concrete slats (usually covered with rubber mats) and manure is stored underneath the building and pumped annually bed-pack. With bed-pack buildings there is usually a concrete or earthen floor that is covered with bedding (most commonly shredded cornstalk bales). The other key feature is the roof shape. Cattle buildings usually have one of three roof types: Hoop (a curved roof usually covered by a canvas fabric) Mono-slope (where one eave is higher than the other) Gable (a traditional peaked roof). Mono-slope and gable roofed buildings can be made out of both wood and steel. Why should our listeners look into confinement feeding for cattle? Weather Feed Conversion Why better? Consistent feed intake Space or Sq Ft More valuable manure What are some draw backs from confinement feeding? Large capital investment Anything else? Let’s now look more indepth to the types of barns you build the most of – the deep-pit barn. What are some benefits over others? The benefits of this type of deep-pit cattle barn include: Reduction in labor expenses: 0.14 hours vs. 0.38 hours in a bed-pack confinement (per head-space/year) Elimination of bedding expenses Reduction of building size: stocking density of 22 sf (in a slatted barn), vs. 40 sf (in bed pack) Reduction in manure management expenses – only requires 1 pump/year Is this true? Increased manure nutrient levels Why? Increased cattle comfort How What are the features of TenCorp, Inc. Standard Barns: Gable Roof Structure With properly designed ridge openings and sidewall height, the gable roof structure provides the ideal ventilation for cattle in every season. Fresh air is drawn in from both sides of the building, and is pulled through the open ridge due to the “stack effect”. Wood-Framed Structure The wood-framed structure provides superior strength for the cattle barn. The roof system includes 1/2″ plywood and felt paper above the purlins. This eliminates condensation issues that are common with metal building systems. Pen Configurations The pen sizes are designed to ensure that the cattle are housed as efficiently as possible, while still maintaining adequate bunk space for access to feed. Why does pen size matter? How do we determine pen and barn size? How do we determine bunk space? How do we determine the amount of water access? Now cattle feeders don’t just need a good confinement to maximize their efficiency.We also need to be able to provide top quality feed to the cattle. Why is this important? Every cattle production site needs to be able to properly store commodities for use in their operation. TenCorp, Inc. provides storage solutions for every size of operation — from silage pads, to commodity sheds. Pads-A simple, yet effective solution allows producers to stockpile grain for future use. Bunkers allow more grain to be stored in a smaller area. TenCorp, Inc. works with our customers to determine: Storage capacity needs Ideal width, based on daily usage Length of bunker required Bunker options included poured-in-place walls, or pre-cast panels. Commodity sheds provide storage capacity for the feed stock needed for mixing in the daily feed rations. Our commodity sheds are overbuilt, in order to withstand the day-to-day use required for feeding cattle. Shed features 8-foot concrete base walls, with 10-foot framed walls above. This provides ample head-height for loading equipment. The number of storage bays and sizes are modified in order to meet our customers’ needs. What else are we missing for our listeners to learn or know about feeding cattle in confinements? What’s the useful life of the buildings? How do we work around regulations locally getting permits to build these? What does the future of EPA regulations or methane emissions look like for farmers? Does this include the use of aerobic digesters? Anything else? Are we working to help the processing end of the cattle industry? Any new plants going up or planned to go up?
