Feed Grain Outlook

  • October 16, 2020 – Nearby corn futures crossed back above $4 this week. The focus on grain use in this week’s newsletter is on fuel, noting the continued impact of COVID-19 on the U.S, economy as reflected in gasoline demand and the ethanol industry.
  • October 9, 2020 – Production revisions to the 2020 corn crop combined with lower carry-in from the Grain Stocks report continue to support corn prices. Let us know if we can help with anything else.
  • October 2, 2020 – USDA’s Grain Stocks report lowered the U.S. corn supply by about 260 million bushels from the earlier September estimate. The crop is maturing ahead of normal for late September but harvest is progressing at the normal pace. This week’s crop condition index was unchanged.
  • September 18, 2020 – Corn futures are higher this week. Major reports from USDA showed a decline in the condition rating of the 2020 corn crop and another round of strong corn export sales.
