Here's a sampling of what some folks are saying:
Corn yields were disappointing, between 125-150, but basis is at least +$1.00, so the poorest corn sales to date are all +$7.00 delivered less than 10 miles.
Cattle feeding margins are strong as the packer is offering contracts at + basis for deferred cattle later in the year. I can lock in market price for my feed plus $100 head. Hope rains eternal… there is always next year.
Family is healthy and all close home, living within 1 mile and employed in ag related careers they enjoy. A healthy 17 month grandchild to celebrate Christmas this year and another one on the way is a blessing. Thank you Jesus.
