Farmer doubts Ukrainian ag trade will reopen


A Western Cornbelt farmer says he has to see ag trade reopen from Ukraine before he believes it.

Missouri farmer Cody Brock is taking his home state’s motto of ‘show me’ to heart.

“I’d be shocked if Putin turns loose of that grain,” he said. “If he actually has control of it.”

He tells Brownfield even though grain markets took steep losses earlier this week/early last week, his mindset is ‘buy the rumor and sell the fact’.
