    Picture is taken across the road from our shop. Dry land soft white should run 115 bushel, it usually does.

    That's beautiful! Are they going to be able to sell it after harvest?

    That's a very good question, 98% of the grain grown around here which is mostly soft white is export. Asia buys most all of it. So farmers around here are pretty nervous
    and not to happy about the things on the national scale. They are not waving the red, white and blue right now. The morning cafe get together for coffee with the local farmers is fairly glum from what I understand.
    I don't have time for that round table B.S..

    Last time I went to Spokane I saw the jumbo piles covered next to the elevators between Mosses Lake and Sprague.
