    This from Reuters:


    "Deere & Co. dropped $2.16 to $38.17 a share after the heavy equipment maker said it will scale back production, leading to lower second-quarter earnings, because the slowing economy and adverse weather have hurt orders."

    Anyone have stock in Deere?

    The real problem is they took over that mess called Grate Dane. ;)

    Yikes!

    Deere also took over Timberjack - the forest product markets are in the can too, so we logger types aren't buying as much new iron as in the good times.
