Re: Beans are buyin acres today

Plenty of truck...... filled the bill.

 

clearing the edges..........  I thought that the first time I saw a CED show how accurate they could get on their software,,,,, and wouldn't ya know, she was drawing around every obstacle on the field to show me how this field was now 98 acres instead of 100 as it had been reported.

"There is a bar ditch that will get farmed as soon as you trim that fields historic acres, in order to get those acres back."

Re: Beans are buyin acres today

Iowa and the belt will increase acres to get more bushels to pay the bills.  The fringe will trim acres with high costs, greater options, and yields will finally go up for real as acres go down.

 

That is the logic I was trying to show by pointing out that over half the national corn crop is not raised in the belt, but in higher risk/ higher cost per bu. fringe........ a couple of years back.  Yet usda continues to discount any problems anywhere else.

Re: Beans are buyin acres today

Plugged it in and WA LAA, what I found is you are looking the wrong direction (again) .

 

Start looking down in the pan handle region of Ok, Texas, Sw kansas, way better prices then up here in Podunk country IOWA.

 

HISTORICALLY speaking many, many ,.many unit train Loads of corn have been shipped from my county unit train loader to the Hereford, Tx area,, it is a livestock heavy, grain deficient area.
