Feed Grain Outlook

  • May 12, 2021 – The first official projections for the 2021/2022 crop year for U.S. corn show a production increase on higher yields but supply gains are tempered by lower beginning stocks. Days of use on hand at the end of the marketing year remains a relatively tight 37-day supply.
  • April 30, 2021 – Planting of the 2021 U.S. corn crop continues at an above average pace: 17 percent planted as of April 25 compared to 11 percent average. Normally about 2/3rds of the crop is in the ground by the middle of May. The focus of the Grain Use section this week is fuel.
  • April 23, 2021 – The corn planting pace for 2021 continued above the average as reported in this week’s Crop Progress. The focus of the Grain Use section is on the feed category with the release of the April Cattle on Feed report.
  • April 16, 2020 – U.S. corn planting progress was 4 percent in this week’s Crop Progress. Texas cash corn prices hit marketing year highs this week as did the Dec ’21 futures contract. Sorghum held strong but did not set new highs due to a weakening basis.
