If corn gets worse in price we can start a thread for co-oping bulk purchases from feed stores. We can go in on pallets and meet at the local feed store and 5 or 6 guys can split the entire thing and divvy it up in the parking lot. An idea, if it gets over 10 bucks on the regular.

Owner of the feed store I stopped at said it is very possible that we will see $12 per 50# in the near future. I sure hope he is wrong.

Many places don't offer a discount on per ton prices, if they do it's .10 or so per 50. Not sure how many tons one would have to buy to change it more, but I'm gonna look into it in the coming months.

Brazil's corn crop is suffering from a drought and it is 2-4 weeks behind on its normal growing schedule which could allow for the dry season to further reduce yields. I saw a podcast last night that production could be off some 10-12 million tons from what was forecasted. This alone would further add to supply shortages on a global scale. Expect China to keep buying.

Wow! The price of corn may cause some us that use to hunt to dig deep to remember how it use to be. The younger guys may have to learn how to hunt without a feeder.

Why do they make gasoline out of it when it is much more economical to make gasoline from petroleum? Only our wonderful government can answer these welfare questions.

I am not smart enough to understand international trade but China is paying more for corn now as is Brazil, India, Africa, and the US. This spike price is going to affect everyone. Don't just worry about what you might pay in deer corn a few months of the year. You are fixing to see a price spike in everything - milk and other dairy, pork, beef, chicken. Hell it is all going up. Inflation is here to stay I am afraid.

Beef cattle prices will go down for ranchers but go up in the grocery stores for retail consumers. Just my guess.

LOL. Very few.

The yankees are mad because they legally can't, or they would. Most of the ones who criticize how we hunt in Texas hunt over standing crops or over travel routes to and from.

Everything has gone up. WIll be $10 corn here before long.

Buddy at the feed mill told me all commodities are going up and he can almost guarantee from his reps/field people that is isn't done yet.

Sure makes for some expensive deer feed

If farmers can store their harvest for any length of time the market always bumps up after the bulk of the supply is sold (usually around harvest time).
