So SA is Dry The USA is Dry and Well Canada is bone dry?

Test
SASKFARMER's Avatar Nov 24, 2020 | 07:48 1 Winter wheat ratings dropped yesterday surprise surprise surprise.

We have just come off a cycle of one of the wettest periods in our history and could this be the beginning of the drought years. Similar to the 30s 80s etc. Cycles come and go.

Europe was dry and finally got some moisture it's too late for winter ****seed planting but alright timing for the rest.

Brazil and Argentina are in a serious time right now the rain is needed in the next 14 days or they are in serious problems.

Canada has snow cover big fricking deal. You need what a foot of snow across the field to give an inch of rain. So yea it's shitty to sled so really no moisture in what we have so far.

Now the USA thanksgiving Thursday will have most quitting on Wed and not back till Monday. So who knows what will happen in the next 4 days. Reply With Quote
Nov 24, 2020 | 07:52 2 Move along SF3..obviously you are still on morphine....the drought doesn't matter until 75 -90 percent of the grain is contracted to those that will profit the most....

Same goes for accurate reporting of the crop size and any other pertinent information that may actually help farmers...


Sarcasm ...just in case you are still on morphine and its making you loopy....

  • Nov 24, 2020 | 08:05 3 Retailers and specialty canola handlers keep asking if I want to commit to growing canola, aka buy or commit to seed 5 and a half months before I need it and sign a basis or production contract. It's pretty hard to get excited about trying to establish canola in what could be dust.

    We are tapped out.

    Canola and flax could be hard to establish
    Canary seed has a shallow root system.
    Mustard is no better than canola and flax

    I have no idea if April will have decent rains to help alleviate the dryness.
    Moisture maps look worse than dismal in our area.

    We could probably drive anywhere we wanted in our stubble feilds with a 4X4 right now.

    Cowboys need spring run off to fill some critically low dug-outs and some spring rains to kick start parched pastures in this area. Neighbor is already thinking his cattle won't be on grass until next June.

    Not too funny in the Slum of the Ghetto!

    FFS farmaholic did you go visit SF3 and get some of his morphine drip????

    This doesn't matter if it is just a farmer concern...move on to something else...


    more sarcasm....

    Remember this though......we are one day closer to a rain.

    This won't matter until some companies cant fill a train or the grain isn't there to move ...then all hell will break loose....

    Nov 24, 2020 | 17:44 9 While the drought is a concern, be careful getting overly pessimistic and failing to market some grain during this nice bull run market.

    A few good rains can add to yield quickly. It is normally this dry here 3 out of 5 years in the fall and I have grown many great crops the following year.

    Yes crop prices MIGHT still be going to the moon, but what I have noticed is that once everyone is talking about why the market is going to go way higher, the bull run is over. I am hearing almost all positive to the moon talk, and starting to fear that this may be close to the high.

    Don’t let greed or pessimism cloud ones look at market prices.

    I just about saw I think it was god turned the handle to open the gate and then i fell backwards and I knew I had to go back and stir up shit some more.


    Interesting week in grain marketing as most brokers and buyers are done tonight till Monday.

    Rookies are here.

    Will it be a weak week I think so.

    Next week could be explosive.

    Interesting fact my arm looks like a junkie with blood tests twice a day and IV working not working redo.

    Ah fun times No not the diet I wanted. Reply With Quote
