Are you kidding me since when is 16million bushel worth 7.4 billion US dollars? I'm no expert, but that is 46+ dollars a bushel. Not much of a problem on the farmers end. Time the markets in our country start reflecting this type of return. However we should all take the hint it is a much cheaper way out to put up additional bins and store it ourselves then settle for these unreasonable prices.

Thanks for the clarity I see that now didn't look right to me either. Still better regardless, but yes in the park.

It's not 16 million bushels, it's 16 million tons of beans. It works out to about $460 per ton. At 60 lbs./bu., that's 33.33 bu./ton, and it's a value of $13.80 per bushel. Maybe a little higher than today's Chicago close, but definitely in the ballpark. RTF article.
