Your Price Data From?

I get several texts a day from my usual buyer that keeps me posted on market moves.  I find that is usually enough and I don't have to watch the board all the time.  When I am more interested in the market, of course I get more involved in tracking prices.  This varies by time of year, of course.


How do you get your pricing info?  Do you use the CBOT or similar site?  Get texts from a buyer like I do?  Call the local buyer when you are interested?  Read in in the newspaper?  Get it on a TV news broadcast?


Just curious if there is some useful method I'm missing.

Re: Your Price Data From?

All of the above except I never go to usda site unless I’m looking at historical data. For a look at price history mostly. Volumes are always speculation.
