    Those Texas silver rounds are nice however APMEX has Austrian silver Phillies for only $0.09 more per oz in the same quantity.

    Re: So....

    recommendations on places to buy more metals? I know about APMEX, JM Bullion and SD bullion, any others?

    Also, so far I've just been getting gold and silver (definitely need more fractional silver), but does anyone have thoughts on platinum or palladium??

    If you have any don't park it on the street. Those catalytic converter theeve's are everywhere!

    As investments go a cow will give you 100% return annually assuming she doesn't have twins. A hog will give you an annual 1200% return if you can stand the smell of money.

    On the flip side I have never seen a John Deere reproduce

    With fertilizer doubling in price this year I can tell you we would produce 170 bushel per acre corn yield with nothing but the starter fertilizer and manure from a 70 cow dairy operation.

    We Nevada hayseeds don’t understand bushels. Is 170 bushel per acre below average, average or above average?

    I need to buy more fractional silver, have to help elderly parents get some more metals (mother gets it, elderly father in denial)

    Well over 90 percent of the people Hitler locked up were Germans. Only 2 to 3 percent were Jews and most of those Jews were elevated to concentration camp guards.

    170 bushels per acre with no fertilizer and natural rain isn't bad. Now with the hybrid corn, fertilizer and herbicides 220 bushels an acre is almost the norm. But it's not what you grow but what you get to keep.

    In the 1940s with single cross corn 90 bushels per acre was good. Then you had to pick it by hand so 80 bushels a day was all you could pick. That would be an acre a day.

    I was told in Wichita 200 bushels per acre are possible but with center pivot irrigation costs breakeven is 190 bushels per acre.

    Watching the online auctions today a Deere 4020 brought $19,000. This is SHOCKING These mid 60s tractors have been holding at $10,000 for the last 30 years.

    Diesel or Gas? I grew up on a 3020.

    I would say the latest market sell off proves that wilver gets dumped first when margins be called.

    Likely diesel. I don't believe I have seen any gas models. Some farmers would have Detroit diesels installed and once in a while you see these on auction.
