Re: Floor Talk August 22

Mike, just saw that the 'Brand X' crop tour found corn yields 21% lower than trend in Indiana and 14% lower than trend in Nebraska. What's everybody think? Is that right, or are they picking and choosing?

Re: Floor Talk August 22

  I have corn that I bought from a neighbor way back when that was light test weight.  I used it to blend in my hog feed.  I moved it out of the bin into my bulk bins and there it sits.  I don't know how long he had kept it, but it was from a very dry year.  My kids would blend it in good corn as I sold it one year and I would pay them by the bucket.  I think the bugs have eaten most of what was left.

My corn is so old it looks like wheat. Good wheat. It will still be fed.

WTI (oil) sitting at $97.27 last I checked...Brent is just over $115...  Any economic "recovery" is a fantasy with oil prices like these...  Add in the sure to come high food prices (as the grain prices work into the system) and I wouldn't doubt we see some ugly economic reports in the months ahead. 

 

Wonder how McDonalds (yes...i eat there) is going to pass off their $1 "mcdouble" (2 "beef" patties)...can they add more fillers?  Smiley Happy It will be interesting as we head down the road to see how food industry handles all this.   Throw in the $100 tank of gas to get to the drive thru  Smiley Happy
