Hart was also interviewed in an Oct. 26 Sioux City Journal story, "Siouxland farmers optimistic despite challenging economic times."
"When supplies exceed demand, you see prices decline dramatically, and that's what we've seen," Hart said. "We hit a peak and immediately hit a valley, and we've stayed in that valley."
"Still, it could be worse," Hart said. "Despite the downturn, we still have a lot of farmers doing well," he said.
He also was interviewed for a CBS News story by Adam Brewster about the economic impact spring flooding had on US agricultural production.
