#1: I never miss U.S. FARM REPORT. Almost always see AGDAY. Al Pell, Mike Hoffman and John Phipps do a bang up job and I also like Tyne Morgan. I do have a very minor complaint. I heard once that you want to keep round table market reports positive. I am writing in regards to the program aired on Jan 21st You had Mike North and Blue Reef guy on. I find opposing views much more interesting and informative than two guys that sit and agree with each other. Let em fight! The markets are what they are and it’s the negative that bites us. Ag Day marketing report could be longer. I wouldn’t watch if you were skipping that function. I have great admiration for what you do there. It looks like a huge HUGE job to gather the information you display.
