To my astonishment corn is still below 7 dollars a bushel this late in the season. With the horrible weather patterns earlier this year, I was certain that supplies would be low coming into October pushing corn above 8 dollars a bushel. However, every day I see corn below 7 dollars, I am beginning to wonder if we will not see a major sell off of the commodity. Right now it is priced at 6.78 a bushel. This could be a reflection of how ethanol subsidies may be discontinued because of our deficits. I don’t see how our government can continue on the spending spree no matter how important they are. And I don’t think ethanol is critical for our society to operate. Anyway, corn gluten is still expensive above 210 a ton, but corn is falling to about 250 dollars a ton. It seems to be to be a tight spread between the two products. I want the best for all farmers because I know how hard it is to make a living out of the ground, but this market is throwing me a curve ball for sure.
