Jen, you are over thinking this. The rules for 2013 are: rain makes grain, heat makes grain, dry makes grain and cold makes grain. Even I am starting to believe that 'everything is wonderful and these new hybrids call produce no matter what'.
I thought we would know in November were the truth lies, but now it looks like it will be late December.
It is really quite entertaining, if you can put aside the money part. My kids lost a chunk of change of their inheritance this week, other than that, I will be fine.
It is been a wild, wonderful, profitable five years to be a grain farmer. Is it over? Maybe.........maybe not. Right now, it pays to be a bear.

I try to see things that are beyond what is presented. When I see things such as the grain market this year that don't make sense, I try to look beyond the obvious, and what we are being fed, to make sense of the why. I'm just throwing it out there for discussion, and it makes me wonder.....
