Re: acres

Peak Corn was and still is a fantasy.  Raising right at 14 billion bushels in a year like 2013 with so much adversity pretty much proves it.  The American farmer will always have the potential to raise a bigger than ever crop.  Have a nice Thanksgiving.

Re: acres

The bears think 14' will get wall to wall corn too.  Boy will they get some some BullSh--- in the face.  Too many underlying issues to plant a lot of corn.  89 mil planted max in the end.  How does that corn spreadsheet look with $4.55 corn an inputs priced from $6 corn?  MoBeans!  I don't care if beans are $10 they are a lot less risk with lower corn prices.  I would rather take the $50 acre cushion with less laid out up front.  Plus we have been knawing at our APH the last 3-years.  Time to get it back up by only growing it on our best dirt with rotation.

Aaron,  I'm guessing that is happening in South America right now.

Re: acres

Ill Steve and I just keep pointing out the obvious. Peak Corn is a delusion of the worst kind. Besides, you have to look at global corn production not just one country. Keep it up Steve. Both sides need a spokesman and you continue to win the debate (just look at your yields and the corn price :-)  )
