Brad S said:Agman, are you worried about corn plantings yet?
It is too early to get overly concerned at this point. If the weather outlook by Thursday is for more cool-wet conditions next week then I would expect the trade to get a bit more exicted. July corn closed today $.02/per bu above our average price projection for the second-half of April. Few if any acres would be switched to beans unless corn plantings are delayed beyond May 10.
How are those kids doing; any more tricks up their sleeves?!! Have a great day.

The kids are happy school is about over for the summer - they don't know that school is never over. I told them we'd go skiing after we got my Dad's corn planted so the kids want to half-ass the corn in. My Dad is terribly demanding about corn planting, and at 73 he's not getting any easier to satisfy. My son, Clayton Wyatt is a natural born cowman cause he couldn't give a flip about planting corn. Dad is getting edgy about not planting, and Clayton Wyatt is edgy about not planting, but my thermometer said 28 degrees yesterday morning, and the ground temp at 4 inches at 10 am was 46 degrees this morning.
