Maybe they could give some of the money to the farmers instead of the resident at some corporate penthouse suite. And create seeds that aren't genetically altered.

Risk-management and financial-services have been a risky business for Cargill for years since they were caught in the Russian bond bubble. But who knows what is the real picture, Cargill has no real oversight as they are privately held.

Corn at $9-12/bushel and soybeans @$15/ bushel--seems to me the farmer has never made more. They create world markets, are the largest privately held corp in the world and earn every bit of it! Go lay an egg dude and stop the class warfare. you probaly have a small unit too and are embarrassed when you take a shower at the gym!!

Promotion from within is the sacred cow at this company. You work for them and travel the world you can reap the benefits. Employ a heck of alot of people so quit b-i-t-c-h-i-n fool. Profit is not a dirty word -- we live in a capitalist country not social welfare! Get a job or when you employ as many people as they do, you go ahead and do things your way. Until that never happens, put a sock in it!!

You would be wrong again. Visited their company though right out of college and it passes the test of great place to work--benefits and compensation as long as both your arms. Also spent time on a real farm with crops and animals--until they advanced foreign markets, corn and beans prices were stagnant. Their success is making a little margin on unbelieveable volumes for which they dominate the distribution network. Only someone lacking in knowledge would condemn a company because they are successful beyond your peanut brain size. Let me guess, Jimmy Cartert and Carter II (obummer) are your guy heroes?

They are an open book to those who need information--in well over 150 countries too. They live and die based on their own capital at risk. They are best in class and got there without needing to be publicly held which would undermine their competitive advantage. Been around 125 yrs--so stop the fretting. The shareholders know what the real picture and they don't worry about those who are clueless anyway.

...what the hell is your problem? You sound really petty and immature with all of your ranting against anyone who disagrees with your views here. Do you have to call everyone names just because they express an opinion different from yours? Sure, it's good for Cargill that they have more then tripled their profits, but some people obviously have an issue with that company and have a right to say so without your vitriol just because YOU like Cargill. It's called a discussion. Grown up people can discuss issues and differences of opinion without name calling. It's pretty clear that you cannot. Perhaps you need to grow up.

Well then, WHY don't you work for them? It's obvious you would like to. They wouldn't hire you, would they? I know they have pretty high and exacting standards and I bet you just couldn't cut the mustard, could you? But keep on trying little man. Maybe someday they'll hire you on as a janitor.
