Feed Grain Outlook

  • July 2, 2018 – Last week’s Acreage report shows most grain acres planted were up slightly compared to Planting Intentions in March. The corn crop condition ratings continue to run above normal. With solid demand, yield needs to be in record territory or stocks could get tight.
  • June 26, 2018 – Corn crop condition ratings slipped two points last week but are still well above average for this week of the growing season. Above normal growing degree day accumulation is promoting crop development across much of the Corn Belt.
  • June 18, 2018 – Along with favorable early season crop development, trade tensions with the largest export customers for U.S. grain and oilseeds (corn and wheat to Mexico, soybeans and sorghum to China) have contributed to significant price weakness of late.
  • June 13, 2018 – Here is a recap of the June WASDE. The stocks to use ratios for corn tightened both domestically and globally.
