    Nov 16, 2020 | 10:13 5 Anything under 13 pro is struggling for price .
    Over 14 pro pricing was very strong in some locations.

    Selling lower protein hrsw into CP plus was $.50 or higher
    It has backed off lately I heard . Reply With Quote

    Nov 16, 2020 | 20:34 7 Poor wheat, at the bottom of the thread list..... and the price list.

    I used to call it the summerfallow of continuous cropping....something to put between the money generating specialty crops.

    Let's call it "dummerfallow". Or dummerfellow for growing it.

    Only guy who makes a killing growing wheat is SASKFARMER in the Garden of Eden. Reply With Quote

    helmsdale's Avatar Nov 16, 2020 | 23:10 9 This area has historically been 75+% cereals. They may not be sexy, but I've yet to see a crop that doesnt put "something" in the bin. It might be single digits, but ive seen peas and oilseeds die before pod set. Cereals are survivors... Reply With Quote

  • blackpowder's Avatar Nov 18, 2020 | 19:53 11 Been thinking about the possibility of a lower USD. Perhaps I should cautiously anticipate a better than avg basis on new crop sales.
    Still not sure how we'll be shut out of another grain robbery this time. This isn't 72. But yes, I'm carefully bullish. Reply With Quote
    Nov 18, 2020 | 20:14 12 The parallels to 1972 and the great grain robbery are amazing, our Fed Govt hasn’t caught on yet Reply With Quote

  • blackpowder's Avatar Nov 18, 2020 | 20:54 13 Okay, I get the demand, the US factor, the subsidy thing, but we dont look to be on track to be shut out of sales by lack of movement. Sold out maybe. Reply With Quote

  • Nov 18, 2020 | 22:59 16 It’s mighty sad that in 1974-75 we got more for durum than we get today. That’s 45 years. That year we bought a brand new Chevy half-ton for $4500, freight and taxes in. Just sayin. Reply With Quote

    Nov 20, 2020 | 06:40 19 Got offered today $320 on farm for wheat to go into box trade.

    Little more planning needed with delivery and grades have to be certain before you deliver, no drama have protien machine.

    Always premium in container market but next weeks offer will be filled quickly.

    Sonot as liquid as delivering to elevator with 15 or so buyers operating.

    But trader rings around need x amount if tonnes next week. Which means ship the week after, if hes short priice will rise mid next week.

    Box trade not sure maybe 10 to 15 plus % of australias trade bit more than niche. Issue is actually getting enough containers. Heading to northern africa i believe.

    Container trade big for you guys? Reply With Quote

  • blackpowder's Avatar Nov 20, 2020 | 12:53 20 Containers I believe are a specialty or pulse thing. Becoming a bottleneck here also. Port capacity and lack of containers becoming issue I've read. Reply With Quote

    yah but that 6.50 milling wheat price still subject to discounts, a good buyer should get that price down to 6.25 after checking your unload sample. Reply With Quote

    Entirely weather related? Maybe not?

    CBOT Dec wht up A$3.33/t despite sharp lift in A$. US$ lower. Demand from Tunisia, Turkey & Sth Korea. Concerns whether Russian crops have enough snow cover to protect them from the cold. Fund buying as well with funds not as exposed to wht as they are to corn & soybns.
