|Deal of the Day|
- Cheap Protein is Cottonseed meal at $359.50 for Dec/March or Sunmeal
at $326.50 JFM or Dec/March. Canola prices down for Spot 2-3 tl
at $380.00 this week, Dec/March @ $360.50, $336.50 for
Jan/Sept. Markets are very slow, now is the time for you to use your
imagination and come up with bids, I am surprised every day with what
gets done by buyers who test the markets with seemingly “out of the
money bids“ !|

No quick resolution in sight so reformulations are going to be necessary.|

|Mega harvest leaves U.S. farmers battling bugs in storage bins|
- With record harvests depressing prices, U.S. farmers are holding
tight to their corn and soybeans and binging on chemicals that protect
stored grain from critters or even leaving corn standing in fields over
