Watching Grain Prices

Wondering what website or app everyone is using for watching grain prices.

Curious to know how many farmers actually do that consistently.

I only check grain prices consistently when I'm wanting to sell grain.... in between time I check once in a while just keep up on trends.
And i only keep an eye on the prices through the websites at the terminals i sell to.

I do. Use Agmobile for an app, seems to be OK, but only gives corn, soybeans, wheat, live cattle, lean hogs and cotton I believe so may not be good for you guys.

I've become pretty anal about checking/watching not only ag markets but precious metals, bitcoin and for awhile I was really watching the Canadian dollar.

Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

Thats a bit of an odd question.
Its like asking how many people actually care what thier income is.
I would say 90% of farmers I know are watching prices at least daily and using thier phone to do it. Through an app or text or emails.

I bet it's probably not as many as you think! Many people tend to only look at prices when they are wanting to sell. I follow daily on tradingcharts, gives an idea of what's going on, but doesn't really reflect on elevator prices. I get several emails and texts from local elevators usually twice a day at open and close. Always find when someone calls wanting to buy somethings as it went up a few cents, it's best to wait a bit as the price will usually take a big jump and they are trying to top up before the price increase. Hard to really go by what a farmer tells you they are getting, as it is usually like their yields, higher than it really is!! lol

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!
