I just read that China and other countrys found some kind of disease or fungus in there corn that they got from S.A. and are haveing to dump it -- bottom line is that they are sending there ship's this way to buy our corn - Traders are worried that we will run out of corn by mid summer .

Funny, thought we were running out of corn by mid-summer anyway!
Before last big report, supplies tight-tight-tight -- then USDA says not really, although we all think they're wrong, and price drops like a rock. Go figure.
Last week, not getting any corn planted, nobody seems to care. Go figure. Sold a few beans - should have held onto those, too - just splittin my bets.

My 2 cents are on $8 corn. Don't see much information that's all that different from last week. Somebody just woke up over the weekend.

Yes C-X-1, and wouldn't you know it, I am down to just my 23,000 bushels of Gambling Stocks I try to carry into Spring Planting every year just for the fun of it!!!!!!!!!! Oh well, I actually sold a good Chunk of corn when Cash Corn hit over $8. So, at least my rough MEDIAN/AVERAGE Total corn price should be ok. As you know, your average selling price for your entire 2012 corn crop is all that matters anyway.
