EPA, Bears and debt reduction on MToM #3611

Lots to get to today on the blog.

Market To Market #3611 is posted here. This episode looks at a lawsuit brought against the EPA over increased blends in ethanol.

The nation’s debt also made news last week as another attempt at reduction was unveiled. And the bullish markets were not just limited to commodities like corn and soybeans, but many of the softs saw a big run last week. What does that mean? How did Alan Brugler see the markets? What’s ahead? Did you listen to our Market Plus segment?

Host Mark Pearson wanted me to share a story with you. He was recently in Boise talking to the Idaho Dairymen’s Association. Mark said he thought he’d been having a rough morning when he was approached by an audience member. The man told Mark about how he lost all of his straw and hay supply in a fire. Turns out, he wasn’t alone as six farms were damaged on a recent crime spree causing $45,000 in damage. The cost of replacement will be double what the hay was worth.

Mark has many other speaking engagements scheduled in South Dakota, North Dakota and Indiana to name a few. We’ll let you know where he’ll be so you can try and see the ever-entertaining Mr. Pearson in person.

Also, Elaine Kub responded to a comment we received last week. Kub was the analyst on MToM #3610. We received a comment here to the blog and Elaine responded.
