A foggy start to the day but the sun has come out now. We had a couple of loads this morning and moisture was between 15% and 16%. Check the website for updates! If you need a moisture test done, please drop by. We will be open until 6 p.m. tonight. If you would like to dump after that, please call. We will be open on Saturday at 8:00 a.m.
Markets are mixed overnight.
Old crop prices have merged with new crop prices and all focus is now on harvest. We have heard about some bean damage after last week's hail. Stats Canada is projecting record corn yields in Ontario and a decent size soybean crop as well. Grain futures don't care about Ontario crop conditions but have been holding up in last few days.
Marketing grain is a real challenge in a market where price swings are big. We recommend small contacts or sales over a longer period of time to gain a solid average. Take advantage of target orders and check prices daily.
