I look at the boards, and then read some of the reasons why the market is doing what it is doing.............
I notice in wheat, the market is down due to rain in the land of down under.
there was also rain here in the u.s. but it is delaying the planting, cool wx not drying, and more rain tomarrow.
work is piling up due to recent rains
beans not cut.....that's not going to be good
same with corn.....
with all that, the market does not respond.
Tell me, just what has to happen to get the market to come up........just what is "their" ideas about the
crops, and where do "they" think prices should go to ?
This system is so broken, i'm not sure if it can be fixed.

the market is not based on supply and demand it is controlled by who has the $ and as long as the store shelves have food on them the only people who get hurt is the farmer and no one cares

Here is a prime example of the disconnect.
The Ks wheat crop is already behind the 8 ball, slow planting progress. With the continued rain, the best time to plant is starting
to slip away.......yet, it is a non-story.
