I think we will have trouble transfering beans to long term storage fast enough at Campbellford the next couple days so we would appreciate any of you southerners dumping anything to Wooler rd that you can.
As a way to avoid corn storage charges that typically eat up all price improvement, use our brand new Maximizer contract. You can price with it pre or post harvest. Consider the quoted price a floor, you will not take lower than that price. Stored corn has downside risk. The Maximizer has upside opportunity. If the market offers you a better price this winter or spring you can take the higher price and get paid that day. It is going to tie up cash on you but so does storage. If you need cash now, you still need to sell the harvest price. On bu you don't need the money on, the Maximizer pays you carry, sets a floor and gives you the chance to sell a better number all the way to June 30. There is no cost associated, you retain ownership of the corn, have a storage receipt and full protection under financial protection program. There is no way I would even consider using open storage this fall. Why pay to take risk on? More details can be found by clicking on "Maximizer Contract" in the green margin on the left side of this page.

A friendly reminder about pods in the sample: they can make it very difficult and dangerous for us to unload bins, so here are a few tips to help reduce them. Keeping air up and bottom sieve down is 90% of the deal. On JD combines you should be about 5 or 6 on the sieve setting. If that causes too many returns, work on getting them threshed better by increasing threshing speed and/or decreasing concave clearance. If you are having trouble please call Pete; he can usually talk you through it in a couple minutes and that saves us all time. Good luck and work safe.
Wheat has bounced a bit. Looking at our 5 step plan, profitable targets are within reach. Probably should consider getting a target working if you are planting wheat this fall. Again, sell the carry.
