anything. High quality isn't really that much more than CRP on a RFQ basis.  But if you guys are that far behind that means we have already lost alot of this years hay crop. Lots of guys up in Minnisoda and sconny land rippin up hay.  Probably why the corn mkt. is going down. It's darn dairyfarmers fault again!

I know a guy buying large square bales at the old Forest City sale barn probably #800 @ $130 ..that`s around $400/ton, uff-dah!  The pastures ain`t growin` too quick.  I have a feeling the day of the 1st cutting, hay price will drop in half.

Re: Floor Talk May 9

Here are a few photos that just came across my desk, this morning. The corn has been in the ground for over a month. It is located south of Griggsville, Illinois in Pike County.

Same field looking in two different directions. What do you think? Will it make it? What will it make?
