Took a trip to Pittsfield for a customer appreciation dinner last night.  Snow was blowing like crazy.  We had a good discussion with new clients and old.  We had lots questions about Gypsum and Sulfur.  Things we have been talking about for years are becoming hot topics.  The main farming activity we observed was a number of people were filling trucks out of grain bins.  Time to deliver on January contracts, or maybe just time to pay some bills. 

The other ag related item of interest was the USDA grain report.  It seemed to me that reactions to reports of "larger" supply were over the top.  When you look at the numbers, it does not amount to much.  I am always amazed at how fragile the market can be.
