thank you 07/24/2013 @ 8:39am Thanks for what you do, Mike. We don't always agree but the more information the better. It's good to have someone on the floor with farm experience. You know what we have to deal with outside of Chicago. However, if the market continues to slide isn't it time for your summer vacation? Maybe the B team should be given the chance to bring the market back.

Markets 07/23/2013 @ 9:40pm I know exactly what Chad is talking about. Maybe not your report Mike, but all the other reports about "fortune telling". Makes you wonder who all has e-trade accounts including USDA people. Corn is now below the cost of production here in irrigation country. Might take a year off, better than losing money again. No Farm No Food!!!

Re: Re: Markets 07/24/2013 @ 8:27am These traders could care less if the farmers loose money or go bankrupt like I said its not their livelihood.

Wow 07/23/2013 @ 3:30pm Calling you people idiots at this point is a compliment. I love how you can try to justify knocking prices down,I've said this before and i'll say it again,I don't understand how you people can go home at night and say yep we did good today but when your messing with someone else's livelihood it's pretty easy I'm sure.

Re: Re: Wow 07/23/2013 @ 5:09pm I don't need to be informed by anyone who is not out in the fields and is not living the day to day duties of a farmer,anyone can sit and read reports and go off of a computers long range forecast or listen to the USDA until you walk in our shoes then I might listen what you have to say.

Mike McGinnis Re: Re: Wow 07/23/2013 @ 3:48pm Chad, Do you understand that this story is reporting about today's trading activity and not setting prices? I'm clearly confused about what or whom you are referring to. I would be happy to discuss this story and the information it contains. Informing the farmer is my job. And yes, I do go home feeling confident that I did my job. Respectfully, Mike
