    I seem to remember talk of someone getting a crop of spring barley from a reservoir in '76!

    :scratchhead: Not sure about that, but I'm sure that it is difficult to farm without it.

    What are feed oats worth now? I’m in the market for some if anyone has any?

    I'm in a similar boat, my usual suppliers are going plant their surplus rather than buy seed which they tell me is very expensive and not very good germination. Can't find anyone locally with any spare. So their probably not cheap....

    Feed wheat £155 Jan/March 2020

    Trying to second guess the Deal vote on Tuesday by taking some cover.

    How much are you doing? I'm tempted to lock in 1t/acre of harvest 19.

    If it's rejected though will that not weaken the £ and benefit us anyway.

    Booked 1t/ac feed wheat for September 19 back in August for £165, doesn’t seem to have moved much?

    What do options cost for that period?

    It's certainly a big call at the moment which way anything will go in next few months. I suppose the aim at the moment must be to protect against risk of losses rather than hoping to maximise profits. (not that is a bad thing)

  11. A lot of good looking crops at the moment, I’m wondering what stories are going to come out if we have a big export surplus which could keep prices down. Did a couple loads Nov £156, might do some more methinks.

    Argentina having a fantastic growing season, Brazil pondering whether they will break crop records. How are other cropping regions doing?

    Done 1t/acre for 2019 crop at £160+.

    This will lock in a substantial profit on some of the acreage at 2014-17 yields.

    And lead to yet another substantial loss at our 2018 yields, if repeated.

    Just over half budgeted yield. I can turn a profit at that. No osr done yet as I’m still concerned that flea beetle could kill a fair chunk of the crop. Wheat is harder to market under WTO than barley so I’ve only done a little bit of malting barley marketing.

    It's all malting barley we grow, but contracts are £20 above wheat futures.

    Would get £180 at moment. Which would be a decent profit. Did some at £190 in October.

    Gut says spot market will start with a 2 at harvest.

    There’s more wheat in the ground because of the kind autumn so less spring barley down south.

    I can’t remember where the options prices are listed. I’ll have a look around the LIFFE websites later.

    Don't suppose you've bought very much land, recently.
