Re: Floor Talk January 5

Current temp at Liberal, KS airport is 12 degrees with some light snow in the forecast.

Mondays' forecast high is 60 degrees.  What does that do to the wheat?

Re: Floor Talk January 5

We look awful rough already.  This is the third one.... We went from 70 to sub 0 in 48 hours in Dec. that one burnt off the better wheat... 

We were dry all fall so dry land wheat has a spotty stand with lots of fields that did not come up unitl late... Those are probably gone already...

Way too cold for good ground cover snow.  We will destroy a lot of it and go for a summer crop when it gets wet again... If it stays dry we will be looking at 2011 again.

 

 East of us it looks better beginning in the Greensburg area..... North not so good .... I haven't been toward OKC area yet.

Do we want Chinese business?

 

Yes

BUT there are many other customers that are worth as much and many times much more...
