Visited with one of my neighbors that has several uncles farming in the north central Iowa area that are reporting very low crop adjuster numbers on some of the corn up there... Under 25 bpa.

 

From what I've seen up there that would be the exception but it is still there to go along with the millions of acres of summer fallow.

 

How is this going to play out with the southern fringe states at 20% over normal yields and most west of central Ne and Ks under by 20% on irrigated or an almost  0 on dryland, and Iowa, Minn, and Wis under by 30% or more?

 

NW Kansas corn field being baled, 600 acres to go.

 

Hows that average out?

 

bales bringing $75+ each at the feed yard.

BTW that is the replacement baler

60% of the time, it works every time.

Re: Bunge's latest poll

Hello boys,

 

I will be at Meredith Corporation headquarters for a month working updating you on South American crops and other things, as well as touring around the Midwest. Yesterday, I went to LIncoln, Nebraska, and checked the tractor tests there.

 

What I can tell you is that the crops I saw on the road were dry in Iowa and much better in Nebraska. The funny fact is that at the same day it rained a lot in Iowa, but the sun shined in the afternoon in Nebraska.

Just hanging on.jpg

The end users are just hanging on to the USDA's pie in the sky #'s

 

and in the mean time the farmers are a lot like this squirrel

 

one of those days.jpg

 

And behind curtain # 3 the Chinese are booking very large orders.

 

The great grain robbery of '13/'14? Perpetrated by our very own USDFA?

 

Where' the Hee Haw guys with their "doom, angony, despair song for this one?

 

oh yea...
