Episode 180: Older & Wiser, Insight from Money Farm Founder Mike Krueger 2

6.2.20 Want to know why so many farmers question U.S. Department of Agriculture data? Mike Krueger suggests it may not be that the numbers are wrong, but rather because the entire system of reporting has changed so much over the last 15 years. In episode 180 entitled Older & Wiser, Insight from Money Farm Founder Mike Krueger 2, the recently retired grain marketing advisor suggests market fundamentals have been overwhelmed by things like fund buying and second to second transactions. Meanwhile, Krueger extolls U.S. Wheat Associates as an organization making a real difference to wheat sales overseas.
