They are violently shaking the bushes is what it really amounts to. They are good at it. Basis levels keep gaining strength as we get closer to spring making me think there is a very limited supply of grain that is unsold though. They can keep shaking but it is a long long time before next harvest.

Just wondering who is responsible for the “trade expectations “ every week on the export sales reports. It seems to me that they, whoever they are, would have a smaller range of numbers every week, meaning they would be more accurate. 

Their estimates should not carry much weight in the market place.

rt = they must have a "meteorologist" doing the trade ranges - they are worth a chuckle.

What's even funnier is when an "analyst" mentions a cargo ship getting blown sideways in the Suez Canal as a reason for the market to react one way or the other.  Maybe 15% of the world's cargo traffic moves thru there but I'll bet the amount of ag commodities that due is minimal.

Vilsack through the Biden administration has allocated around 6 billion in a new overall pandemic assistance program which I believe CFAP falls into.  Program designed to help support medium to small Ag producers effected from the pandemic.  Check it out fellas, it benefits most of us that qualify.

Re: Floor Talk March 25, 2021

Brings to mind a comment I saw this morning that delivered a smile to my face........ 

How is this for a serious fundamental comment''''''''

  • "Mexicos corn farmer associations expect 2021 corn production to miss the governments 27 MMT estimate, seeing output closer to 24 MMT due to lack of government subsidies and policies; corn output was 27.5 MMT in 2020."

 

Just what is the rate of application per acre for government policies.........?   And more important were those subsidies and policies composted?????

all three of us at this desk had a grin over that one.
