"i have spent every dime of credit that congress has given permission for me to loan out. i have spent every dime of cce money that provided as much under the dairy margin protection program as congress has authorized us to do." this was likely secretary vilsack's last hearing before the senate ag committee.. he gave advice as lawmakers look at a new farm bill.. asking them to look at what agriculture needs. ---- in the senate judiciary committee hearing tuesday.. big seed
11:21 am
says the potential to develop new products... doesn't outweigh his fears that prices will go up because there is less competition.. he says one of the big reasons for the hearing is to keep the justice department honest.. when it determines if the dow- dupont merger or chemchina-syngenta and monsanto-bayer buyouts violates anti-trust laws... "i'm very concerned about these mergers and the hearing was to tell the justice department and the we're looking over your shoulder, we expect due diligence to make sure the anti-trust laws are enforced." ---- harvest was slowed down a bit this week by rains across the country.. but so far the grain market is reacting to early yield results.. "we're starting to trade some of the early harvest results, and at this point it's still pretty early. a lot of rain, bean yields are good. " "we're

the early corn numbers as we really start to build big numbers for illinois for example. corn's rallied, we've been up into a sell signal. not really wanting to sell at this time of year at all. beans we could trigger a sell signal here in the next couple days, we're real close to it. so it could be a small bean selling opportunity at the minute." "china gave us some bullish news opening up the beef exports over to china which we haven't seen for a while so that's been positive. big supp "that's had hogs under pressure not sure we want to do much other than be patient. i'm looking for an opportunity to sell hogs. certainly don't want to do anything here but the real story there is big inventories. weights are up, cutout values are not moving strong enough to the positive to spark any kind of rally here so
