Feed Grain Outlook

  • January 17, 2020 – December 1 U.S. corn stocks of 11.389 billion bushels was below both last year and the five-year average. It was the lowest December 1 stocks level since 2015. Grain use numbers this week show an increase in grain for fuel and ethanol production.
  • January 10, 2020 – The much anticipated January World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates made larger revisions to the 2018 corn crop than to 2019. Bottom line: ending stocks tightened slightly and the season average farm price estimate unchanged.
  • December 20, 2019 – This week’s reports related to feed grain use were positive for demand: corn and sorghum exports, cattle on feed, and broiler chick placements. Hog and Pig inventory numbers will be released on Monday.
  • December 13, 2019 – The December WASDE made no changes to the supply and demand balance sheets for feed grain (corn and sorghum) or soybeans (except the season average farm price estimate was lowered 15 cents). January Crop Production and WASDE reports will provide those critical updates.
