More than one pundit has said that if it weren’t for weather, politics and religion the average human being couldn’t conduct a conversation. We talk about the markets a lot with our producer clients, but those conversations have had a lot of politics and weather in them lately. If religion comes up it has been of the Dear God or Oh God varieties, with pleas for better weather or a second chance to sell the top. This time of year, weather tends to dominate because it drives planting progress.
