In 1985 the U.S. corn carryout was about 4.04B bu. after already having the PIK program - paying people not to grow corn! In 1986 it grew to 4.88B and in 1987 it was 4.26B! The nearby late summer price range was $1.42 to $2.03 (from USDA balance sheet)! You've got it Andrew and nobody is worried about it but you and me! That's what this thing could become in the next year or two and it will be ugly! Oh by the way - $400 seed and 300 bpa won't fix it! Only more demand will! Take care!

Unfortunately Andrew, droughts are about the only thing in our long range plan that gets rid of too much corn. Thank the Man for Ethanol - used about 5B bu. for that last year! Can you imagine staring at a 7B+ carryout and the price that would create! End users would be happy, happy, happy! They don't want the grain guy making any big profits!
