Wet weather ahead
This is just a forecast but it does look like the wet weather will continue for Iowa. Heavy rain now will do little damage to the maturing crops however, some cattle farmers looking to chop corn soon, may have to wait. This was a Summer where the crops did not suffer from lack of rain. Not even once here in central Iowa. Did they suffer from too much rain? Yes, time will tell.
Other than sell what I have contracted plan to store this crop as long as long as I need to.
Re: Wet weather ahead
Story was told of a farmer who stored corn (ear corn) multiple years during the "Great Depression" hoping to get a higher price. The price of corn was .17cents when he cribbed it and .11cents years later when he sold it. The rest of the story is that rats ate 1/4 of the stored corn!!! The only "happy camper" here was a pack of rats. A 30's marketing strategy that went south.
