Bins full of old crop

Last week I vaced and swept two of my silos out. I learned that my local co-ops and private grain dealers bins are plumb full of old crop ! Mostly soybeans. Normally it would be on barges by now floating down the river. I asked if there was any chance of moving grain out before harvest, he didn't hesitate to say no way ! I would like to know how much old crop beans in storage in other parts of the country and Canada. I'm already planning on less beans next year. There is going to be a lot of bunkers with tarps put up this fall here. I'm glad I have on farm storage for 80% of my grain.. Might be a lot of corn let stand till spring.....

Local elevators were supposed to get 40 and 80 rail cars respectively last month - they got none and are chuck full.

In this area, a lot. COOPS are chucked pretty full yet, and we have a massive crop coming. Some extra farm storage has gone up and local elevators have added about 2 million in new storage this year. There will also be close to 2 million extra bushels of corn as 8000 acres of seed corn production ground did not get awarded this year.

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

Thank you Trump?

When do those cheques start showing up in the mail? Did they include some cash for extra storage!

canadian elevators are probably filling their pockets left and right, can't ship more anyway because of the railroads and they know competitors are stuck in the same boat, so might as well widen basis and ride this cash train. We can't ship anything down south anyways because prices suck there too. Farmers stuck for storage are going to be *ssr*aped by elevators.
soys in canada are nothing to special to brag about and neither is corn (in western canada that is)
if prices don't improve by march we're adding storage I think. can always give it away another year then.

crop is slow moving here too, but harvest was earlier than usual.

Have not had a soy in the bin in a year, only have a hand full of rr1 acres in for seed stock, looked at prices the other day and just about had tears of joy I only have 180 acres in!
Didn't plant an acre of corn this year, first time in 13? Years and while the price ain't so bad compared to the last few years I'm not crying about not having them either!

Everything here is chuck full of wheat though and 100% of this years crop is getting locked up tight in the bin

God Bless America
