Title: Overflow
Post by: BigSkyKen on September 06, 2014, 12:19:50 PM
Montana's wheat harvest has been pretty good this year, and most grain elevators are at capacity waiting for the railroad to ship the harvest.  This elevator in Moccasin, MT uses an exposed ring-wall for the overflow grain.

Very interesting, Ken.  Does that mean prices for bread and other wheat products will go down?  :lol:  (Dream on, Jeanne)

They should be more affordable in the coming months.  Corn, wheat and other grains are considerably less expensive than during the last five years, and unless China decides to buy up untold millions of bushels, we should see some relief in a lot of carbohydrate food pricing over the winter and spring.  Proteins, particularly red meat, won't see the same magnitude of price decrease...in fact, beef may become more expensive.  Vegetable proteins might come down, especially if the US, Canada and South America can prioritize rail shipping pf soy and canola over crude oil.  I know, fat chance of that :(

Great shot Ken!

I'm glad to hear wheat harvest has been pretty good this year.
