mark guildenzoph predictions 02/26/2013 @ 10:44am Would you like to know why we don't believe it can happen because of facts not predictions. Fact droughts can occur at any time not every 50years like the last comparable to2012 in 1990 and two years prior88. Just like the weather center said Katrina would only happen every 100years then Sandy pounds the east coast whoops. The facts are where I live in Chicago Lake Michigan is still 20 inches low so as far as water levels being returned to normal not true all over the country. The fact of the matter is that if the grain market was adjusted by supply and demand like all other commodities we would be at 20dollar corn and 50dollar soybeans. Based off of predictions the market is turmoil what will happen is of no concern to the average farmer who cares about what is happening now FACT.
