I have decided to sacrifice some personal spending to take part in the Marketing Academy.
My marketing advice in 2013 could use a little more refining ------------ maybe a transplant of heart.
I will be in Kc for the first one Dec 2. Hope to see a few of you there.
Deadline is approaching ------- consider it!!

Those of us who subsribe to Roy "Soy Roy" Smith's annual newsletter that comes out once a month for $25/year or so know that Roy posts his trades and gtives a position recap each month.
It will be interesting, educational and persuasive if the SF Marketing Academy wallahs begin a similar public posting of a notional, typical corn belt grain farm that harvests let's say 100,000 bushels of corn and 25,000 bushels of soybeans, all of which are sold. That would be a 1,000 acre farm split evenly with 200 bpa corn and 50 bpa soybeans. I figured those numbers are close enough and are more or less round numbers. If someone has more realistic numbers for a good corn belt farm we can use yours.
What do you think?
