We appreciate your patience as our new employees get positioned into their work environments. We welcome you to stop in and say hello to them when you get the opportunity.
Grain Comments - Charles
Grains traded higher on Friday due to a lower dollar and some good soybean export sales. November soybean futures rallied 28 cents to $10.06 before closing up 25 cents at $10.03. December corn futures managed to traded 4 cents higher closing at $3.42 3/4. Without a fresh, bullish weather outlook, corn will have a difficult time pushing higher and maintaining it. Corn ratings are just the 2nd best in 22 years with minimal threats in the weather forecasts.
Special Notice: On days when the market experiences extreme volatility we may elect not buy grain in the afternoon. We can place a pricing offer for you when the market reopens at 7 PM in the evening.
DTN Grain Offer System
We have implemented a grain pricing offer system on corn and soybeans which is both free and easy. You can select a target price above the market and we'll place that offer into the DTN on-line system which will work 24/7. When your offer hits we'll call you to see how you'd like to select payment. Orders must be placed in 1000 bushel increments. Please contact Charles, Katie or Rita in the Dysart office at 319-476-3666.
