leebros, this post is not directed at you or wise1,
The most ridiculous statement i ever read today was on the nc dealers quit buying seng today post reason;;;; NO MARKET!
Are you flippin kidding me? NO MARKET? REALLY?.....REALLY?,
you guys should start posting dealer names when they make absoulutly stupid, stupid stupid claims like that, I have a good mind to hop a plane fly to nc, find those dealers and laugh in their hillbilly faces. When in recorded history has there ever been no market for wild ginseng? So what those guys have stated is that ginseng has no value whatsoever, i call bullsh*t, there is no way i will ever accept that reason.
Here is the real reason: they have all the seng they can afford to buy, complements of poachers and idiots selling green seng to them at a whopping 200 a pound. that equates to 600-800 a pound dry, depending on which crook you believe on the green to dry ratio. You guys that are panicing are suffering from the \"heard mentality\" not to be confused with the \"herd mentality\".
Let one dealers make a stupid comment and it takes off like wild fire, i heard this or i heard that...looks like they have the diggers on a sheet of artic ice clubbing them like seals,
look prices will hit 1200-1500 lb this year, you or i may not recieve it but when the market finally wraps up this year those dealer are going to be laughing all the way to the bank, and whats worse is they are going to sell you guys seed at the tune of 150* lb. Ive been telling you for weeks to hold your seng, but if you get skinned buy your dealer its your own fault.
think about this, if they had money they would at least be offering something for the seng right? hell makes me want to try to get my license before season ends. hahahah were not buying...stupid ginger-kids.
lets go back to last month. does this ring a bell?
i said this would happen, but it came even earlier than i expected.
