Well look at this market now! Corn up 10 and beans 3 during harvest, this is rare! My advice is always to know what you need to get. Figure your input costs and go from there. Of course everyone wants the best price but the guys that have there corn priced out at 4.10 and beans at 10.00 are still in a heck of a position. Thats unbelieveable return on your acres! It used to be enough for farmers to break even but todays world has changed things and I feel that lots of guys get caught up in things and stress out about it. I feel like offers are probably the greatest and smartest idea ever! You can lock in what you want and don't have to pay attention every minute, if it hits even for just a second you are locked in and that a wonderful thing.

Well thanks! Yeah my dad farms 11,000 acres. So we see all kinds! I'm really interested to see what people are doing in other parts of the US as I just got a job as a grain merchandiser for CGB and I feel you can never have enough information.

lol...that's true. Cows have no idea about holidays and what not. Thankfully we have enough people working that everyone gets every other weekend off!

Yep, Holstein... closed herd, all AI. The vet comes for herd health every other Tuesday, and we also have someone who comes in once or twice a month to oversee the feed rations.

Hey there! =)

Sounds like you're talking about the Bartletts in Standish. If so, they're not too far. We're at opposite ends of two neighboring towns.
