The guys delve into the reality that bushels will likely be hunting for space this year, and what that means for the value of space amid the sad-trombone spread structure currently in place (hint: don’t pay too much for the basis!) They also get into the nitty gritty of the real cost of running a grain elevator and how your policies can help (or hurt) your ability to cover those costs. As always, the anecdotes are free for our valued listeners.
We are joined by University of Arkansas Professor, Dr. Mckenzie, to discuss the grain business and how he has been able to bridge the gap between academia and pragmatic cash grain trading through his career. He also shares with us his perspective about what qualities young people are looking for in an employer as they begin their careers (and it's not what you might think). Finally, we discuss his very intriguing work on the psychology of farm marketing.
