geiger... you see cooperatives on the side of the road in big and small towns.... during this time of year.. it could look pretty busy.. but it may not be clear what they are.. so in honor of national cooperative month.. i headed over to a facility in monroe to talk to tracy gathman.. but before we got to what a co-op is.. i had to ask him how harvest is going.. "it's been wild, david, we've gone, probably three weeks now without
12:50 pm
bit the last couple of days, but it's allowed the producers to just keep right on rolling. and it's gone incredibly fast, and it's been really good so far. tracy gathman, general manager, two rivers, pella. the farmers themselves own the facilities, that's who we're here to work for and it's especially sweet when it's in october, right in the middle of harvest. and we can see the fruit of the labors. this facility, or these companies, were started in 1920, by the producers, they own them by common stock in the facility, they completely own the company. all of our profits are turned back to our member owners, or the producers. the quality's been really good. we're seeing a lot of stuff come out of the field now with very low moisture, especially with the corn. we're not having to run our driers whatsoever. everything's coming out anywhere between 13.5 and 16 percent. we're trying to make as big of a hole as what we can. we've started a ground pile at our facility in otley. we've moved some grain into some terminal storage to try and make more room. early on, we actually got soybeans in room
12:51 pm
today we've still got 20, 25 percent of harvest left and the bins are filling rapidly and where we're going to go with it next, i'm not real sure, but we'll get that figured out in the next day or two. nats" cooperatives should not be mistaken for independents. there's a big difference.. independents are owned by one person who takes in the profits.. co-ops are owned by farmers who split the profits. the two rivers co-op has nearly 500 farmer members.. and employs around 50 workers.. gathman adds they've seen the

"soybeans got a very good export will continue to see very strong export sales for most of the weeks between now and the end of 2015. but the corn and wheat numbers were pretty poor." "the cattle market is probably not done yet. but we are starting to see a little resistance here both technical and fundamental. the export sales of beef were pretty low the last week. we still think technically there's a little more room to the upside in cattle. although, they're due for at least a corrective pullback here."
