good afternoon.geiger. this week the senate is going to try and deal with the g-m-o labeling debate.. by passing a voluntary labeling bill headed by senator pat roberts.. it's an attempt to head off what some senators believe will be a nationwide patchwork of state labeling laws.. that start with a mandatory labeling vermont law in july. iowa senator chuck grassley says laws like vermont's are intended to hurt biotech products.. there are some democrats.. like senator debbie stabenow on the agriculture committee that think different state labeling laws will not work.. but it's not clear if democrats as a whole.. will back a roberts bill. "they aren't sure where democrats stand on it, yet. but in our meeting tomorrow or thursday will tell us exactly where they stand. but it's going to be difficult to get this bill through the united states senate if it isn't bipartisan."

"march is next week. i think again for another month. i don't think there's any money to be made until at least april so avoid this market at the current time and if you look at soybeans, they're the same price they were six months ago. corn has gone nowhere. just avoid the market at the current time. i still am not bullish though." "i'm not involved in cattle right now but as a producer i would take advantage of any of these 200-300 point rallies. absolutely. i still think we are in a longer term downtrend line. meaning the spike ups are just retracements. we're still headed lower."
