Feed Grain Outlook

  • January 4, 2019 – The budget impasse in Washington limits fundamental market information normally included in the Feed Grain Outlook. We should know soon if that will impact major reports slated for next week: WASDE, Crop Production, Wheat Seedings, Grain Stocks.
  • December 21, 2018 – Portions of corn and soybean production areas in southern Brazil have been dryer than normal in early December. Corn export sales were strong this week while sorghum remained flat. Livestock inventory reports show increases on the year for beef and pork, steady for poultry.
  • December 13, 2018 – No major changes to U.S. grain supply and demand balance sheets in the December World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates released on Tuesday. U.S. corn ending stocks up 45 million bushels on a reduction in corn for fuel. Sorghum and soybean ending stocks unchanged.
  • December 7, 2018 – The stock market is down sharply this week as concerns over global economic growth and the state of trade negotiations between the U.S. and China weigh on the market. Grain prices, which moved higher on hopes of progress in the trade situation, have held on to gains.
