Re: Floor Talk July 31

The 2014 U.S. soybean harvest is underway. In south Texas's Rio Grande Valley, the combines are rolling and the yields are way above normal for that area, Texas A & M ag officials say it's so good, that the area farmers should think about planting more of the legume than they do. I'm still waiting to hear of exact yield numbers.

Re: Floor Talk July 31

Just more proof that I know nothing about these markets. Is there another industry that had reported sales over 25% higher than anticipated and the price drops?

Re: Floor Talk July 31

But don't they say that every so many years computers double their speed? I wish that was happening to me.

Re: Floor Talk July 31

Computers might double their speed but is it noticeable? I mean if you take processing speed from .2 nano seconds to .1 nano seconds that is doubling the speed, but we're already processing so fast that the increase is unnoticeable. Apply that theory to production Ag and see if it fits anywhere.
