4 pre-harvest grain marketing lessons
The calendars have turned to September, which by my unofficial calendar math means that we’ve officially entered the fall season. Fall has always been my favorite season of the year, and for good reason. Growing up in rural Michigan, fall meant cooler days and bonfires at night, long days in the woods chasing the big buck, filling the combine with yellow gold, and of course football season (Go Blue!).
This past Friday I was at my local high school football game, and like a lot of early season games, it wasn’t the cleanest game ever played. In the first half, both teams struggled to move the ball much. Any good offensive play was almost always brought back by a penalty. There were turnovers from both teams, not to mention a few questionable coaching decisions and play calls. The game came down right to the wire and would eventually be decided by a touchdown that was scored thanks in part to a costly interception late in the fourth quarter.
