John has New Crop Soybean Recommendations in comments May 16th
Old Crop Corn REALITY
The old crop corn basis is as strong as it POSSIBLY should be (farmers are in the field).  Need CASH FLOW?  Trucks are sitting....  In August, the processors will be the best bid and will be running short hours, and everyone will be busy.  EXAMPLE:  Sell 20,000 bushel @ 3.35 = $67,000 CASH FLOW.  For $6,000 investment, that covers the "margin requirement" and an additional 10c down.  Or $3,000 buys you 4 (20k bushel) August 380 Calls (14 1/2c).  NO MARGIN RISK, and you have until July 21st.  Sorry folks, its over by then. Bugs...Damage....Processor is best bid and likes to dock, etc..... Call me with questions.  -John

Brenneman will be closed May 16th until 12pm May 18th

Farm leaders representing ag exports in beef, pork, rice, corn and wheat are all somewhat concerned about losing their current market access as a result of the Trump administration's planned renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Others, however, said the administration could use the trade talks to lower the national trade deficit and recalibrate trade so it benefits farmers more and corporations less.
