Yes anonymous 2 you're right, name-calling doesn't accomplish much but I'm alittle tired of all the analysts and experts who have been trying to pick the bottom of these markets. Bottomline is no one knows where that is. I sold most of the 07 crop for a good price but no I didn't sell any 08 because of the so-called experts' pie-in-the-sky predictions back in June. We don't even have our corn crop out yet, barring a miracle in the coming weeks, we may be taking it out come spring if it's still standing. Not sure it matters in the long run as we'll probably be swallowed up in time by one of the big-grain farmers who up until a couple of years ago survived because of the government checks. Call it whining if you want but it's a fact.
Bob, you say you're concerned about end of year weakness. Cash corn is 3 bucks and beans are 7.50, what was your first clue, you moron!!! Your problem is that you don't have a clue, everyone's got that figured out but you.
anon amouse must have the same yearend outlook that scrooge had, with an attitude like that. He must not have sold any 7.00 corn, is mad at himself for not doing so and takes it out Bob. Also there is no need for name calling, just look in the mirror.
