we all had opportunity farmers always get to a target then want more once it gets there and complain when it vanished quickly

and current weather related spike is nothing more than a dead cat bounce so sell into it in my opinion

usa canada south america europe australia and russia and most of all india will produce a crop so be careful what you wish for

STO it's exactly the same here, the smart farmers sold when prices were climbing and the dumb "I wish we still had the CWB" farmers wanted more because what if the price goes higher.

Grain marketing on my farm is one of the easiest and most enjoyable tasks on my farm.

Biggest problem with the coops are they take thier time and kill off all the competition and then when there is not options left they slowly but surely raise thier prices higher and higher so eventually we have to go to the larger centers to have any purchasing power. And in a lot of cases thier service sucks too.
