Hi John...I almost fell out of my chair, when you admmited on live t.v in front of all us other, regular old farmers, that you still had '08 grain, IN the BIN unpriced. I am shocked, You of all people hear in person from the great advisorrs on the show about putting a floor??? Or protecting the grain on hand?? And all the other terms that I would wager 75% or more of us have no idea, or the $$ to do..I look forward to listening to you and Scott.
A fan, Cliff
Cliff - thanks for watching. I'm going to use this for next week's show. But suffice it to say, I don't do fancy marketing. I use forward contracts, and farms storage, period. I have tried to "upgrade" my marketing several times and seem to lack the discipline and time to adopt the tools our gurus insist we must learn.
More next week.
