This year it was hard to stay on the right side of the market. Brody was able to keep the plant with a good supply of corn but at a higher price to the corn pool. When the market is continually going lower that works against the corn pool so our margin call will be higher this year. Patty informed you of this at our informational meeting in September. Remember our annual meeting on January 23. We will be electing two board members at this meeting. My plan is to step down, so if anyone is interested, please call the office to get your name on the ballot. The corn pool has no districts so the new member can come from any direction.
I want to thank all of you for trusting me to be part of the corn pool since its inception. It truly has been my honor.
