Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Judge Orders Dairy Group to pay Farmers $50 Million Judge Orders Dairy Group to pay Farmers $50 Million Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleReducing the RFS, Bad for the Environment and Economy, Farmers Tell EPA Hoosier Ag Today The Dairy Farmers of America cooperative has agreed to a $50 million revised settlement paid to Northeast U.S. dairy farmers. The settlement stems from a class-action lawsuit that accused the marketing group of trying to drive down milk prices. The revised settlement includes new protections to prevent retaliation to farmers that was missing from a settlement proposal denied by a federal judge in March. Settlement papers were filed on Thursday and require approval by a U.S. District Judge. If approved, the cooperative will pay an average of $4,000 to more than 8,000 dairy farms.The lawsuit was filed in 2009 when farmers accused Dairy Farmers of America, its Dairy Marketing Services arm, and dairy processor Dean Foods of conspiring to monopolize the market for raw Grade A milk in 11 U.S. states stretching from New Hampshire to Virginia. Dean Foods reached a $30 million settlement in the case in 2011. The Kansas City, Missouri-based Dairy Farmers of America did not admit wrongdoing in agreeing to settle, according to court documents.Source: NAFB News Service By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 9, 2016 SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE
Facebook Twitter Indiana Corn and Soybean on Farm Bill and NAFTAThe Renewable Fuels Standard stole the spotlight last week at Commodity Classic in Anaheim, CA, but other issues like trade and the Farm Bill have not gone away. Steve Howell, Director of Allied Industry Affairs for Indiana Corn and Soybean, was a panelist at the Purdue Extension Midwest Women in Agriculture Conference in Muncie. He spoke about the status of the Farm Bill.“I’m still hopeful that we’ll be able to finish the bill on time. There are some concerns that if the process isn’t completed by July, given the fact that it’s an election year, there may not be an opportunity to get it done on time, but I’m still hopeful. The Farm Bill has certainly always been a bipartisan effort. I think there’s good opportunity for lawmakers to come together and find some common ground on not just farm programs, but on nutrition issues as well.”Many programs within the Farm Bill do not currently have baselines, or funding allotted. That, along with the proposed changes to crop insurance, has Indiana Corn and Soybean concerned.“With any new legislation there’s going to be a lot of talk ahead of the actual development of the bill. I’m confident that we can protect the good programs that Indiana corn and soybean farmers rely on.”The continued threat from the president to withdraw from NAFTA continues to be a topic of conversation. Howell doesn’t believe NAFTA will go away, but says that if it does pork producers could lose $12 for each hog, or their margin.“The reason we’re concerned about that as Corn and Soybean group is livestock is our number one customer for both corn and soybeans in Indiana. So, we need our livestock producers to flourish so we can flourish as well.” Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Corn and Soybean on Farm Bill and NAFTA SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Mar 5, 2018 Indiana Corn and Soybean on Farm Bill and NAFTA SHARE Previous articleGovernor Appoints State Fair Board and Commission MembersNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for March 6, 2018 Eric Pfeiffer

In addition to contributing to DSNews.com, he is also the online editor for DS News’ sister publication, MReport, which focuses on mortgage banking news. About Author: Tory Barringer Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / FHFA Director Says He Is Powerless to Alter GSE Bailout Agreement As stakeholders continue to battle with the government over what they say should be their share of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s profits, the regulator in charge of overseeing the two GSEs says he’s not in a position to act on that situation.In a meeting with reporters on Wednesday, Mel Watt, former U.S. representative and chief of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) since December 2013, discussed a number of key issues facing the GSEs and the agency, touching on topics ranging from recently introduced low down payment programs to the often debated subject of principal reduction for struggling homeowners.One thing Watt says he has no plans to change is the GSEs’ current bailout agreement with the government, which has allowed the Treasury Department to sweep nearly all of their profits since August 2012.Despite protests and lawsuits from politicians, industry groups, and investors about the terms, Watt told reporters he doesn’t perceive “that it’s [his] responsibility to start that discussion,” according to the Wall Street Journal.”I inherited a set of agreements,” he said. “I know why they were put in place, basically as a quid pro quo for rescuing Fannie and Freddie. … I just have to live with it.”Bruce Berkowitz, the CEO of Fairholme Funds, said he does not believe that Watt is powerless to act in this situation. Fairholme, one of the GSEs’ largest investors, has a lawsuit pending against the government which claims that the sweeping of GSE profits into Treasury is unconstitutional.”According to recent Congressional testimony, Mel Watt, our conservator at FHFA, claims he is unable to end his own conservatorship,” Berkowitz said in a conference call earlier this week. “In the history of conservatorships, this is a first. Think about it.”Another issue Watt stayed relatively quiet on was the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which is set to expire at the end of this year. Since debuting in 2009, the program has reached more than 3 million U.S. homeowners, though its numbers have fallen off dramatically over the last year. FHFA estimates there are some 700,000 borrowers who are eligible for HARP refinances.While some industry participants say they would like to see a new expansion to allow more homeowners to refinance under HARP, Watt said that is not in the cards.On the topic of Fannie and Freddie’s recent move to lower down payment requirements to 3 percent for qualified borrowers, the FHFA leader kept up the same kind of defense he offered to Republicans critical of the change.”There’s not the kind of correlation that people say there is between a down payment and paying a loan,” he said, adding that the new loan programs are substantially different from the types of offerings that led to the housing crash.Finally, Watt also discussed the idea of reducing principal on severely underwater properties, a strategy that this predecessor, Edward DeMarco, was staunchly against.While noting that the idea had never been taken off the table, he said that any cuts will be “substantially narrower” than what some housing advocates have called for, adding that the focus would be to reduce the risk to both the GSEs and taxpayers.”Reducing everybody’s principal would cost taxpayers billions,” Watt said.

The Importance of Assessing Weather-Related Risk 2021-05-26 Christina Hughes Babb Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Hurricane season 2020 broke records, with named storms such as Hurricane Laura delivering the most intense hit to the northwestern Gulf Coast since 1856 and Delta ravaging a similar path mere weeks later—and those account for but a fraction of the estimated $7.8 billion in hurricane damage in America last year. The record-busting season combined with increasing climate-change-related risks to residences has insurers, governments, and investment-property owners thinking of new ways to mitigate hazard and make neighborhoods more resilient, according to property-data provider CoreLogic, which Wednesday hosted a webinar entitled, “The Winds of Change: What We Can Expect From the 2021 Hurricane Season.”Moderator Maiclaire Bolton Smith, Senior Leader, Research and Content at CoreLogic, and a panel of experts examined weather, climate change, and property damage during the 2020 season and looked at the 2021 forecast.They discussed anticipating hurricane risk with catastrophe models and presented compelling reasons why financial institutions should care and remain informed about weather- and climate-related risk.”Based on data from NOAA over the past four decades we’ve seen a 70% to 90% increase every decade in the total inflation-adjusted losses from weather events in the U.S., Bolton Smith said. “And this trend isn’t slowing down, and this is why it’s more important than ever to know your risk to help accelerate your recovery.”Panelists include Daniel Betten, Senior Leader, Science and Analytics; Thomas Jeffrey, Principal, Science and Analytics; Shelly Yerkes, Senior Professional, Product Management; Tom Larsen, Principal, Industry Solutions; and George Gallager, Principal, Hazard and Spatial Solutions.Battan pointed to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a source of storm data, noting that it tracks the number of billion-dollar storms every year. “Last year, we saw $7.8 billion hurricane tropical storm events in the U.S., which was, by far, a record,” he said. “Just to give a little context, that’s the same number of events we’ve had the last three years, combined.”Jeffrey discussed storm surge, one of the most vexing aspects of a hurricane, the panelists agreed.”Storm surge flooding [along with wind] really is one of the two major threats to life and property that’s posed by hurricanes,” he said.”One thing I think is critical to mention here is that storm surge is not limited to that 100-year flood zone that we all keep talking about. It’s a situation where you can have even low-level storms that push a lot of water inland,” Jeffrey said. “So the 100-year flood zone certainly is viable when you start to consider what is the threat for many storms, but in other cases, you can have surge water that flows beyond that and I think that becomes apparent when we start listening to the survivors and some of the storms, saying they just never knew that they were had the potential to have their properties flooded.”Yerkes uses charts and maps to demonstrated how professionals can use data and tracking to help them understand property damage risk.Gallagher explained why he believes this understanding is vital for banks, borrowers, and whole communities: “We’ve already established that 2020 and previous years have been record-breaking financial impacts across many communities. I summarize this as a key reminder we cannot overlook the human impact and community impact that devastating hurricanes and other natural disasters have on borrowers homeowners and the communities they live in.”He points out that spikes in delinquencies are common and somewhat expected when federally declared disasters occur.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The 19-year-old who allegedly opened fire in an Illinois high school this week used a gun that had been purchased by his mother, according to Illinois State Police.No victims were injured in the Wednesday morning shooting at Dixon High School, and the suspect, Matthew Milby of Dixon, Illinois, is in custody.The weapon used was a 9mm semi-automatic rifle that was purchased by Milby’s mother in 2012, according to the state police.The state police said it is investigating how the 19-year-old — a former student at Dixon High School — obtained the gun. Milby allegedly fired several shots near a gym Wednesday morning.Senior Devin Scott said he was in the gym when he heard what sounded like fireworks.“It was a little unreal,” he told ABC News.The weightlifting coach then ran into the gym and alerted the students — who were all seated in the bleachers for graduation practice — to run for safety, Scott said.“Some started crying as they started running,” Scott said. The school resource officer confronted the suspect who started running away, Dixon police said. When the officer pursued him, the suspect shot several rounds and the officer then returned fire, hitting the gunman, police said.Milby was hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries and then released from the hospital on Thursday, state police said.He was taken to Lee County Jail to await his arraignment, which is set for today. Milby has been charged with three counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, Dixon police said Wednesday. Bond was set at $2 million.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
