Definition of the word "coincidence".
A chicken farmer went to the local bar ....He sat next to a woman and ordered champagne.
The woman said:" How strange, I also just ordered a glass of champagne".
" What a coincidence " - said the farmer, who added: " It is a special day for me ..... I'm celebrating"
" It is a special day for me too, I am also celebrating!" said the woman.
"What a coincidence" said the farmer.
While they toasted, the man asked: " What are you celebrating?"
" My husband and I are trying to have a child for years, and today, my gynecologist told me that I was pregnant".
"What a coincidence!" said the man. " I'm a chicken farmer and for years all my hens were infertile, but now they are all set to lay fertilized eggs. "
"This is awesome" said the woman. " What did you do for your chickens to become fertile?"
" I used a different rooster " the farmer said.
The woman smiled and said: "What a coincidence"

MARKET COMMENTARY July 11, 2014
By Nathan Schouvieller
Unfortunately I have been given the rather unpleasant task of summing up a pretty gloomy marketing week. So here goes, September Corn Futures closed down a total of 31 ¼ cents on the week and the December was down a weekly total of 30 ½. Soybeans followed the same trend with August beans down a total of $1.04 this week and November down a total of 58 ½ cents.
Today’s Crop Report capped off the bearish news of the week with production unchanged at 13.86 billion bushels and an average yield of 165.3 bpa. New crop ending stox were increased from 1.726 to 1.801 billion bu and had the highest stox to use ratio in six years at 13.5%. Old crop ending stox increased as well from 1.146 to 1.246 mostly due to a decreased feed usage of 125 mil bu.
Fields in the draw are looking really good and if you haven’t started marketing new crop yet it’s time to stop putting it off. If you want some help we are signing up Pro Pricing bushels now and would be happy to discuss it with you and see if it’s a good fit. Premium offers are another great way to add a few cents onto your cash price. If nothing else give us a call and have a conversation about what you have left to market we’re here to help.
Have a great weekend. Hopefully the rain holds off and there will be some sunshine to get out and enjoy.
