This is a bad time of year to try guess what the market will do, nobody wants to take the first step to start a trend. Guys buying will try wait as long as they can to see if prices will drop as harvest approaches and guys need to free up bin space. Will kind of stay like this for a few weeks then will get bouncing around a bit before harvest. Don't get all down and out just because it hasn't made a big jump and other markets are weakening, I haven't really found any connection between barley and other crops, it seems to follow it's own path.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Corn had a terrible day today and is still $4.83 per bushel in Canadian dollars for December corn (futures price). That doesn’t work out to worthless barley by my math. What if the trade war worsens and we put a tariff on US corn? Ever been to a feed mill? All the trucks are from the states, at least in Manitoba.
