Where are the trucks?

I went by our local coop today and no trucks anywhere dumping grain.  $6 cash corn, $14.33 beans, dry gravel roads, nice spring weather, too wet to be in the fields, but no trucks hauling grain.  Are the cupboards bare?  If the farmers are sold out in April then what happens in May, June, July, August.  Last fall the shortage of corn showed up in September.  If that shortage starts showing up before it’s even planted, these markets are way behind.

Bill Havertape said he could make the case for corn being $2 higher  or $2 lower. Local elevator NCIA is basically full and need a train.   Hauled yesterday, today the D.O.T boy was around, reckon he has a boat payment due   Smiley Happy

Re: Where are the trucks?

Mine got parked Monday after first load of corn, 16.7 moisture they (eplant) had a 16.5 limit through Wed. Shut for maintenance Thursday and Fri. Open next week for business as usual.

Local coop has been staying near full to full and shut for deliveries many days.

Closing in on twice as much per load as last Aug.

$6 bought some this week....

 

On the bean side still dragging my feet on empting last couple of bins till $15 or July.

$14.52 right now.
