"...Periodic surpluses or market imbalances are hardly new. They occur weekly as grocery stores sales peak on the weekend and plummet early in the workweek. They occur seasonally and in conjunction with holidays, such as the Christmas and New Years holidays when many stores close. And, more and more they occur cyclically as the market roller coaster takes its journeys up and down. The lesson for farmers and everyone else in the supply chain is that market risks are not new but they are much more pronounced than they used to be and all elements of the industry are struggling a bit to learn if old strategies are still the best strategies."
