Quarterly grain stocks were a non-event for beans and wheat and slightly supportive of corn by number, but if we consider that last year we lost approximately 13 million acres to floods, late planning and an early winter and as of this report, at least farmers have shared the intent to bring back all those 13 million acres and a smidge more at roughly 14 million acres.

Pork exports were released on Thursday with total net sales of 38.2 million metric tons down 1% from last week and up 88% over last year. China again represents about 50% of those sales with some of the new sales represented by initial Chinese importers participating on the approved tariff waiver program. What’s this done to prices, Bauer explains.
