With spring planting stalled in much of Illinois due to recent heavy rains, farmers are directing their attention to numbers at the Chicago Board of Trade. Michael Zecher has acreage in Mercer, Rock Island and Henderson Counties. He was happy to see a nice rally in the grain markets on Monday.
Zecher says he saw as much as four inches of rain in different parts of his operation last weekend, but doesn’t anticipate any re-planting.
