A farmer in west-central Missouri says it’s been an interesting time for crop marketing.
Garrett Reikhof from Lafayette County says he took several loads of soybeans to a local crush plant as soon as they were harvested.
“We took a number of soybean loads to Kansas City to capture some premium on early delivery. That worked really well for a week or so, but we stored the rest. Prices have started to rise on soybeans, so that’s alright, but I’m not overly optimistic about future prices.”
Reikhof says it will be important to harness the highs of the soybean market and corn prices are anyone’s guess.
