What is going on with winter wheat right now? I asked that question of Meridian wheat farmer Richard Durrant who owns the Big D ranch. “There are a few growers that are taking their water off, we’re getting some hot weather and things will change pretty fast around here. I don't thing we will be harvesting anything before the 15th of July probably closer to the 20th. Its just nice to see some rallies in the wheat market. Producers that had dark northern spring, definitely that dark Northern Spring is having some good rallies. When we’re getting $7 dollars on that, growers are at least feeling better. The Soft white we still have a ways to go. We got some carry in the market so that makes a big difference when we’re getting a 20 cent carry in the market in December, January thats always a positive note. Personally I have about 15-20,000 bushels. Growers stored in the warehouse, still 10-15 percent, about 300,000 bushels so not very much.”
