All these tough conditions that we are all reporting are just what the doctor ordered for us farmers! Take insurance at 85% revenue which is at profitable levels and pray that we don’t raise a crop so we take even more bushels off the market! Because farmers are price takers and not price makers and we will need even more $ per bushel next year to absorb the prices that these retailers are looking at throwing at us farmers next year! Because there will certainly be a shortage of Fertlizer!
