mark guildenzoph 11/19/2013 @ 10:52pm 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.

Re: Re: 11/20/2013 @ 12:30am 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.
