After the long holiday weekend the grain markets are quite a bit lower today. In the case of corn I read it was "profit taking" and planting progress or soon to be planting progress. It was warm over the weekend but looking at the forecast for the rest of the week it does not look like we will get a lot of planting done here in the upper Midwest
Recently I helped announce the 12th Annual Randolph FFA Tractor Parade. A record was set this year with 119 units in the Parade! The entire school from grade school students to high school students along with the staff and administration came out to watch the Tractor Parade

We have seen some big swings in the grains today but we are a fair amount lower. We have had a big run and in the case of corn broke through overhead resistance and got quit a bit above it. Gordy with Slipka Trading said during our 11:15 report that it is normal to see a market break through and than go back down and test the new support level
Traders had a lot of information to digest today. Last Friday after the close the USDA released the Quarterly Hog and Pig Report. This got a lot of attention because of the PED Virus killing a lot of baby pigs
Monday morning at 11:00 AM the USDA will be releasing the Stocks Now Positions and the Planting Intentions Report. On the projected plantings traders expect that Farmers will plant around 92.748 million acres of corn this year
This is National AG Week which coincides with the first day of Spring. The idea is to recognize and celebrate Agriculture. It seems consumers today do not understand where their food comes from. Well, it comes from the grocery store, but how does it get to the grocery store? When my generation was growing up there was more of a connection to the Farm
Thank You to everyone that stopped by the HyVee Food Store in Faribault Friday for the Food Awareness Program! It was fun to talk with shoppers about where their food comes from. When you include all the business that provide the inputs for Farmers, the service sector, processors, retailers like HyVee and transportation it accounts for 20 percent of our economic activity in Minnesota and the United States
Hope to see a lot of folks at the HyVee Food Store in Faribault Friday morning from 9 to 11:00 am for Food Awareness Day. I will be Broadcasting Live from HyVee Friday Morning and also hosting KDHL's AM Minnesota Program
