  not shocking... the big elevators and commercials are holding poor quality grain to blend off with the new crop. Also harvest was starting earlier and some of the bushels in stocks are new crop bushels and not old crop leftover.

  Gmart is right! Grain Elevators held over poor quality grain to blend with good grain from this crop year, the only problem . . . in a large area of Iowa there is a lot of poor quality grain which when blended will be poor quality grain. They are screwed.
