Re: WASDE Today, place your bets!

We will be well into October for bean harvest in my neck of the woods. Although there are a few fields starting to yellow. The switch at my local Co op for new bean price currently sits at $1.05. 
It won’t surprise me to gain that back in a few weeks.😉

Re: WASDE Today, place your bets!

went for a drive yesterday afternoon, first combine I saw running was at the I-80 and hwy 71 junction in a bean field.

Saw a few more as afternoon wore on. Saw several more in various locations up I-29 disposing of corn fields.

Very few bean fields ready yet, some getting close, close to a third still all green.

Quite a few pivots still running, maybe my next major investment?

Dryness becomes way more pronounced out westside of Yankton,SD. white covered piles of chopped no eared corn everywhere.

Special thank you and kudos to our EricJohnson68 for he and his wife's hospitality last evening and this AM.

Great couple.

Apropos time to recall some wisdom from Jim Rogers: Never get your investment advice from the government ... USDA included. USDA still too Pollyannaish in their estimates of vital crops.
