We won`t have a market for a while

If you have old crop to move, might as well sell what you need for cashflow.  And in all this drama, don`t forget to check your bins, I cored some bins 3 weeks ago and let`s just say i`m glad I did, it wouldn`t have lasted long with warming temps and foggy days.

I have no idea where markets bottom, let alone "marketing opportunities".   The way I see it is I left my revenue assurance crop insurance levels at 85% corn and 80% beans and I`m comfortable that I did.  For the 2020 marketinging year, my worst case scenario is the "per acre" guaranteed amount that my insurance lady highlighed for me.   I can make that number work and I`ll bet you can too, but we might have to live on Mac & Cheese...that is if they still have a supply in the stores   Smiley Happy

Brisk  ,  Limit  Up  moves ,  occupies  a  thin  slice  of  our  liking  and  during  this  market  Days  of  Infamy ,  things  will  improve   -  -  -

Seems  we  are  harvesting  a  bumper  crop  of  slung  mud,  and  finding  a  dwindling  market  destination  -   -   - 

EXAMPLE   -  Who's  fault  are  these  current  market  conditions ,  socialism ,  while  we  are  told  not  to  gather  - ?

Re: We won`t have a market for a while

We have to draw our strength from the Paul Harvey "God made a farmer" poem.  It was easy to pat ourselves on the back 7yrs ago when it was played in a Super Bowl commercial and corn was $7 at the elevator.  But now is the time when we need to live up to our larger than life reputation..
