Talked to someone recently in the S. Eastern part of SD, and if the information was reliable their local grain elevator was bidding 1.51/bushel for new crop corn.

You better get out and buy futures before it's too late. :wink:

We heard in the past couple of days that at least one ethanol plant in s.e. SD is doubling their ethanol production, and IF recall is accurate, they currently are producing about a million gallons per year. Wonder if/how much that will effect local corn prices. Will try to find the story to check numbers.

We use quite a bit of the dried distillers grains left over from ethanol production during winter in our backgrounding lot. Hauling costs will probably be more than the feed if things keep on the way they have been going lately.

Going $1.50 to $1.60 around here at the local elevators. And the new crop isn't all that bad looking in the fields. Everything of ours will be chopped this year...soon.
