Feed Grain Outlook

  • June 11, 2019 – U.S. corn in today’s WASDE: old crop carryover (new crop beginning stocks) were up, 2019 production down, and new crop use down. The surprise was in the magnitude of the change in the yield estimate, down 10 bushels per acre to 166.
  • June 7, 2019 – With the pace of corn planting about 3 weeks behind, lower acreage and yield numbers are expected in next week’s WASDE, but so too will be lower use estimates, old and possibly new crop.
  • May 31, 2019 – Corn planting continues at a slow pace, eclipsing the record late planting year of 1995. This has implications for 2019 corn production from the standpoint of both final acreage and yield.
  • May 22, 2019 – A short market update report today but wanted to get something out about the Crop Progress information released Monday and ahead of the long Memorial Day weekend.
