Export numbers show dramatic increase in corn, feed grains

Exports of dried distillers grains and sorghum decreased due to reduced sales to China.

U.S. Department of Agriculture export data for the month of September — the first in the 2016-17 marketing year — showed a dramatic increase in exports of feed grains in all forms, a bright spot in the overall challenging farm economy, the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) reported.

Total feed grains in all forms — which includes corn, sorghum, barley, meats, ethanol and dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) — in September were up nearly 34% from September 2015.
