    check out the chart hiwall just sent
    pick live hogs which are up 3% just today
    then look at the 5 month chart by clicking the 5M button upper right.
    April 1 (three days ago) they were trading about $87 - right now $98 - that's almost as good as a Killery cattle futures trade (look it up).

    and maybe this has something to do with it:

    really feeling sorry for those Midwestern farmers.
    they are facing another big storm - forecast for 12-18" of snow this week in Minneapolis, which is 2-4" of water
    many areas in the Midwest are going to be "too wet to plow" this season

    I'm hauling a HazMat load out west from a Yankee state and when I got towards Omaha and took the I 680 beltway because it's the law, the beltway is rerouted because the entire rest of the beltway has been severely damaged from flooding and an entire town has been evacuated and condemned because of the flooding. This is not a trifling matter.

    Corn planting is behind schedule in the United States because of the weather in four of the top six states for corn production -- and that situation is not expected to improve when the latest Crop Progress report is issued Monday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture

    Illinois, Minnesota, Indiana and South Dakota are the four states significantly behind schedule and expected to remain that way, according to AccuWeather meteorologists who have been analyzing the data. Those four states combined produce nearly 40% of the corn in the U.S. If the weather continues a wet pattern through late May, consumer prices could go up this summer.

    Flock, that's where I get some of my corn but we also have a producers co-op where the corn is grown locally. That saves a ton of money and I like buying local for grinding my cornmeal/corn flour for making cornbread.
