Feed Grain Outlook

  • October 14, 2021 – Revised old crop and new crop corn production and use estimates raised the ending stock number for U.S. corn in the October WASDE. The single largest bushel change was feed use in the 2020/21 marketing year, revised downward by 128 million bushels.
  • October 8, 2021 – The U.S. corn crop is 88 percent mature with 59 percent of the crop rated good and excellent. That is about where we have finished up the last two years. Export sales for corn reported this week were the strongest of the marketing year at 50 million bushels.
  • September 24, 2021 – With the last week’s release of the Cattle on Feed report and the Hogs and Pigs inventory, the focus of the grain use section today is feed. Generally, livestock and poultry numbers are starting off the corn marketing year below year ago levels.
  • September 17, 2021 – With 37 percent of the U.S. corn crop having reached maturity, the corn condition index still slipped 3 points this week. Normally, the index shows a slight increase as the crop year winds down. The focus on grain use this week is the fuel category.
