Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

Corn's up 55, beans up 81.  Now, wait for the crowd to start complaining, "Can't be, can't be, can't be".

  Sure begs the question, what happened to the American farmers'  ambition?  Can't count on them to plant their way out of high prices, no how.

Re: Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

isn't there some other internet site that you can go to to attack farmers while you watch the grease drip?

Rsbs,

A sign that says

"       WARNING

           TROLL

UNDER THE BRDGE"

should precede his posts.

Re: What, attack farmers?

As a farmer, I like higher prices as much as the next guy but I've been conditioned to disappointment so I'm a little surprised and confused when it doesn't happen.

Conditioned for disappointment   In New York. I fully believe that.

Farmers will overplant.   I don’t think that has been true in 15 years.  It’s just a usda wives tale.  

Congress took farmer decisions out of it when they decided to pump up ethanol. So they wouldn’t hear “we’re burning our food” from political opponent.  Usda began guaranteeing surplus, regardless of real data. That is why we are in this position.—usda can’t deliver their bushels.

Central Banks Globally

Are simply capitalizing Every country.... No matter what. 

Soo.....they are all eating better and consuming More Products.

Times have Finally Advanced some.

Thus global usage of things like corn beans wheat is Imperatively Higher than it used to be.

It's called Evolution.

Re: Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

Yes it was quite the surprise.

Seems to be that kind of year.

We've had several of these large move days followed by either a turn around or a yawn.

At least this time it may have footing. Not just a dart board excuse.

For the few left that will not be droughted out, hailed out, flooded out, frosted too soon, or mostly sold too soon this most likely will be a blue ribbon year.
