Apr 22, 2021 | 12:23 1 A quote is not a sale, but I just quoted a prospective customer on non-GMO corn at $335/t. ($8.51)

Which is about $15/t over board price bid for conventional.

Coulda done better on the old crop bean sales, but at least the corn crop is still in the bin.

It's almost stupid to not pull the trigger on all of it right today. Reply With Quote
Apr 22, 2021 | 12:54 2 How are conditions there? moisture, soil temps? Reply With Quote
Apr 22, 2021 | 13:10 3 After a balmy, very dry March, we are having a shift to colder than normal April temps. Some good rain 10 days ago - about 1 1/2 - 2", really helped the hay and winter wheat ground, but it's still quite dry for this time of year.

Most N has gone on the wheat, but still have to get mine on. Tomorrow if it doesn't rain.

Some spring grains are in, planted in the good stretch in March. A tiny bit of corn, just a few "test" acres.

-4C last night, forecast for -5 tonight. Ridiculous. Reply With Quote

    Where is this one going?

    Now hearing reports from local hog producers that it's getting tougher to source corn.

    A loooong time until harvest.

    The SRW might just end up in pig feed. New crop SRW bids are about $320.

    Corn currently at $345 FOB farm. New crop at $266/t. Reply With Quote

    hay crops and pasture are in trouble in the majority of western canada , feed grains virtually gone here as well. Next three weeks critical, early yet but as of now not looking great for feed anywhere. Reply With Quote

    You certainly don't see big moves in corn like we've been watching over the last couple weeks. huge moves some days. Canola hitting $20.20 this morning, has to be the highest offer for anyone in the history farmer sales, even for the coffee shop B.S.er Of course we're going higher. Reply With Quote

    not even close to the highest if you factor in inflation. Reply With Quote

    May 3, 2021 | 10:05 13 Pulled the trigger on a bit.

    $9.61 delivered to the feedmill.

    What it will cost the producer who is feeding it when it goes out as prepared feed.

    Last time we sold feed grains at these levels, some the guys who were buying it from us to feed livestock quit the business.

    The cure for high prices is high prices.

    But one thing I know - when corn was $1.92/bu when I started farming, nobody ever offered me a premium to help keep me in business... Reply With Quote

    The monthly chart is mind boggling. Reply With Quote

    May 5, 2021 | 07:34 17 burnt.

    Good info.

    Sure hope you didn't hate yourself in the morning!

    Oh!, I just remembered, you have flea beetle to do that for you. He hasn't got time for people like you.

    Meanwhile, canola explodes higher. I think macdon's info months ago on ag, and I'll admit I thought he was way to generous on where prices could end up, has a convert.

    A 10,000 acre plus local has seeded their entire farm to corn. Balls of steel considering zero subsoil moisture. Even seeded corn on corn. Reply With Quote

  • May 5, 2021 | 08:22 19 I did about 1/3 of my small acreage, so I don't feel too good or too bad.

    It was up about $10/t the next day, or almost $400 a load, LOL!

    What surprised me was how readily the feed mill made an offer and could take delivery fairly quick - within a week.

    These are some weird and wonderful times.

    I was out a fair bit on the soy crop but so far so good on the corn. Reply With Quote
