Deck Chairs on The Titanic

About as useless as re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Meaning that what you are doing is really not going to affect the eventual outcome.  Its an old expression that came to mind the other day while moving wheat and canola to a different bin.
Even at the unattractive spot price there are not many places buying canola, or any other grain right now. Most blame the railways. That has worked for years .
I needed to make room for granular fertilizer and the bin was full of canola. The only other reasonable option was to move this canola to the other farm some 8 miles away where there was adequate space to store it til the price goes up (or more likely down).
The snow is going away slowly with daytime temps in the high 30s and we are starting to see some bare ground in places. Early spring maybe? No excess water? We can only hope.

  1. I hope the water IS down for you this year. Then again, maybe the more limited acreage will help keep prices from falling.
