More corn

In Ontario there is more corn coming from the 2013 crop.

Finally the snow has gone enough that harvest has resumed.

Will this flood the market and drop the price?

Re: More corn

He is not the only one still trying to finish harvest.

Lots of corn out in different places.

Snow stopped them last fall and it never went away enough until now.

 

Understand the quality of the corn is quite good.

Re: More corn

I know I'm 90% to go lol. If this is who I think it is he's in the big hilly area that is sandy loams. I'm primarily in the low loam areas

Snow won't get in some fields either

How many bushels are we talking, give or take a couple of million?

Didnt think it would register.

 

Reminds me of one of my friends that said the guy he worked for in the 80s sold 20000 bushels of soybeans one morning and the market dropped 20 cents because of that.

 

Sometimes you need a bigger perspective just to see how silly you are.

Re: More corn

This morning I see some harvesting did not go well.

Not sure this is the same guy as I know there is still corn out in many areas of Ontario.

Re: More corn

Good luck!

 

What is the quality and moisture like.

 

Have an air dried bin and still trying to get the drying front to the top of it.

Been a slow job this year.

Just had the last 3 days (Sat and Sun on low hydro rates) so will test it tomorrow and see if I finally made it.
