A little silver-haired lady calls her neighbor & says, “Please come over & help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle & I can’t figure out how to get started.” Her neighbor asks, “What is it supposed to be when it’s finished?” The silver haired lady says, “According to the picture on the box, it’s a rooster.” Her neighbor decides to go over & help with the puzzle. She shows him the puzzle spread all over the table. He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, and says, “First of all, no matter what we do, we’re not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster.” He takes her hand and says, “Secondly, I want you to relax. Let’s have a nice cup of tea, and then,” he said with a deep sigh… “Let’s put all the Corn Flakes back in the box.”

Today the alfalfa sold much lower. The three new crop loads were carrying moisture and had very little buyer interest. The grass sold steady to stronger on the higher quality and steady to weaker on the mid & lower quality. Bedding remains weak.
