It's That Time of Year

The most recent 6 to 10 day outlook from the NWS is calling for the Heartland to remain warmer and wetter than normal. The Rockies might get some early snow and some private forecasters have gone out on a limb and are suggesting that the growing areas of concern might get a frost two weeks ahead of normal......We'll see. We're too cheap to sell yet, there's no apparent reason to accumulate! Yesterday's reports were luke warm and a trade deal may be around the corner. Regardless, there's no reason to chase anything near term and spreads may continue to stay on the defensive.

Field reports coming out of the Mid South for corn are good as theyields are not as good as lat year but given the headaches we saw this Spring producers are happy! The race for space begins!
