 Sisal and Plastic twine prices on the increase

Yes last year twine went up $10 a bale. Usually twine will take big drop the year following a large increase, but that is not the case now. What has happened with sisal is there is increased demand for sisal rugs. The most expensive sisal fibers from African sisal were switched from AG twine to sisal rugs but the demand has exceeded the supply of the available African sisal. The European mills located in Portugal have moved their operations to Brazil because of the logistics of now having to use Brazilian sisal for the European markets. The sisal fibers used in baling twine take two years to grow so when demand increases it takes 2 years for the producers to catch up.

Any twine in stock now will be at a lower price than when the 2006 stock hits the market. Since we purchase thousands of bales of twine we purchase 6-9 months in advance. We have nothing to gain by selling a few bales of twine in stock now when we will receive $5 more for it in a few months.

Plastic twine is made from oil and oil prices have dramatically increased since last years twine raw materials were purchased. Depending on the plastic twine desired, it has gone up $3-5 for next years market.

This price increase will not affect the average small producer because they may use 5-10 bales of twine. What if you used 100 bales of twine? That would purchase $500 more of that cheap diesel fuel. Farmers need all the advantage they can get because they purchase retail and sell wholesale & work long hours in non-glamorous situations.

Just tell me what I am trying to sell MURF? If you think you can sell twine over the net you are showing your Ignorance. I'm a Premium member and paying for that.
"Bwuuup, Bwuuup, Spam" Alert should be posted after any of the BS you post anywhere on the net. If you want to call me out you know where you can reach me. Mark Carter

Let me guess. You're trying to sell equipment, right? Isn't that why you posted a link to your web site? BTW, you don't show as being a premium member. There's no "Premium Member" indicator by your name and there's no "P" next to status on your profile. If you paid you might ask Dennis about that. Or just try logging out and back in to see if it fixes it.

 Sisal and Plastic twine prices on the increase

I'm not going to get into a school-yard level discussion.

You are a MEMBER yes, and you pay for it, OK, so do others here, I don't see MEMBERS who are computer whizes touting their businesses for free.

I'm sure there's more than one golfer or landscaper on this board.... Tell me, what is the name of my business?

You don't know it, and you don't know what my website is BECAUSE I DON'T SPAM THIS OR ANY OTHER BOARD.

"...posted after any of the BS you post anywhere on the net..."

Care to elucidate a little on that statement?

So you're saying Mark it's a complete coincedence that you are posting about the price increase on binder twine, then saying, of course, you would never do such a thing, then put a link to YOUR OWN SITE which just happens to have in big red letters across the top of the page "Hay Equipment Headquarters" ??????

Just who do you think is going to buy that?

Pun completely intentional.

BTW, Ken brings up a very good point .... your profile.

I see nothing but sales brochure type pictures on your profile, and then when I click on the "View Posts by Ironpeddler" link guess what I see, 90+ posts, in almost every single one of them your post is nothing but a thinly veiled infomercial wherein you say such & such can be had from CC Machinery and there is a link to your site.

Interesting screen name BTW, from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary "Peddler: one who offers merchandise (as fresh produce) for sale along the street or from door to door."

Best of luck.

Murf,
Show me where I mentioned our business in the text or even a price. That is crazy for you to say that I'm trying to sell off this post. If I'd said LandPride make a good core aerator but I'm not a LandPride dealer that would be the something.

Twine is sold locally. Just because I have a business does not preclude me from posting.

All I tried to do was to give some people the heads up what was going on with twine.

Murf have you been eating that MadCow infected Canadian Beef?

I agree with Murf and KW. Although Murf does talk about his business, it's used to provide information based on expeience gained in operating his business. I've never seen him post his business's name or website. Although I'm curious about it, he does an excellent job of keeping that side seperate from his board postings.

If Murf hadn't called you out, I would have. I started to read your posting and my "advertiser" alarm went off. Then I saw you were already called on it. Be upset if you want, I think the responses to your post were justified.

It's always interesting to note the downhill slide of an arguement....

First the opinions.....

Then comes the facts.......

Then comes the personal insults... even if it is one sided.

Mark, still waiting ..... "...posted after any of the BS you post anywhere on the net..."
