Corn dumping hours are Monday - Friday, 7:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
If you have corn to move before harvest, give Roger a call to discuss your options. August / September prices are better than new crop due to demand so don't miss out of selling your old crop.
The report on June 30th told two different stories. It showed a decrease in corn stocks but it also told the story of more intented corn acres than the trade expected. Of course the bad news won for now. The trade still isn't sure that we will have 91.7 million acres of corn but that is the number the computers will trade until the August 12th report when new numbers will be released. The higher prices in May and early June told producers to plant more corn and in some areas they did. We will have to wait and see.
We have plenty of summer weather yet to get thru but look at marketing some of your expected crop to at least get costs covered. It doesn't have to be today, but don't wait forever. We are already rationing corn and will see more SA corn come into the coasts and ethanol has had a tough time making money lately so wouldn't be suprised to see more ethanol production drop off. You wanted higher prices and we have gotten them. Take advantage of some of it keeping the majority for the next level that we hope is yet to come.
Over the last couple of years $3.60 so don't miss out on opportunities to sell above the cost of production. This year with the option to sell new crop at $4.25 and above it should make for a little easier marketing strategy.

Dry conditions will dominate primary crop areas Tuesday. Temperatures will be seasonal to below normal in most areas, favoring pollinating corn. Rain will be confined to a swath in the Southeast. » More DTN Weather Commentary
