The Labor Day weekend means the end of summer.  The temps this week were summer like and will help bring the growing season to a close.  We will need the frost and cold temps to stay away for several weeks.  The grain trade is ready to start trading how soon frost will hit and which growing areas will be affected the most.  Stay tune.  It will be warm for the start of college football this weekend.  Make sure you get out and cheer for your favorite team.
 
I’m guessing we won’t see our first new crop bean load for another 3 weeks.  This week some bean fields are starting to turn yellow.  Some fields are also showing some sudden death or white mold issues.  Most of the corn crop looks to be 30 – 45 days away from harvest?  The nearby basis numbers are the strongest.  Most processors are trying to buy just enough bushels to get them carried over into new crop.  Heard today some new beans from southeast Iowa made their way to Cedar Rapids.  Next week areas in Southern Illinois and Indiana may start harvesting some corn.  Price probably won’t rebound until we find out more about our yields and the start of the SA planting season.
 
The dryer crew should be finished on Saturday.  The LP line will be installed on Wednesday.  A crane will be here to set the last section and the head for the wet leg on Wednesday.  The installation of the fill conveyors up top will start next week along with the dryer reclaim and wet corn fill conveyors.  Concrete work will continue as needed.  The electricians have several days ahead of them.  We also need to install a new transformer.  We are exceeding our limit on the old service.  We will have several areas of the driveways to dig up to bury gas and electrical lines.  We will try and keep them as smooth as possible this fall.  We hope to have everything running in time for harvest. 
 
The fall grain policy will be posted next week. 
 
The Annual Meeting is scheduled for Thursday Sept 17th.  Invite cards will be mailed out. 
 
Thanks for your support and understanding while we’ve been under construction.
 
Have a great and safe Labor Day weekend.
 
Bob
