It doesn't count until you have the scale tickets

Thanks to Hobby in a post below for reminding us of this simple fact.

 

While scouting your fields (and your neighbors too) You can argue yields and bushels per acre until the cows come home.

 

But it doesn't really count until you have the scale tickets.

Tiger - your still living in the old days - lol   You need to get with the program man !  Today the USDA tells us what we make - without scale tickets -  See - what they do is just move some from suppy or export and put in the bpa column and there you go , you just made 190 ! Just look at all the paper you they save with them dang tickets -  Hope this helps yeah some ! btw - No charge

That's right for half the market. The cash side. The side that hedges has been farming the CME right along.
