Soybean export sales picked up for the third straight week this week at 35.2 million bushels, up from 33.2 mbu the week prior and an 11.1 mbu bottom three weeks ago, though still less than half the comparable week last year. That LY total was the last big number for ‘18/19, however, with weekly sales averaging less than 9 mbu per week here on out. ‘19/20 sales would have to average 23.5 mbu per week from next week through August to meet the USDA’s current estimate for a 77 mbu.

Funds credited with selling 10K contracts yesterday bringing their net short to 156K contracts. Soybean selling guessed at 5K making their net short there 23K.

Brazilian real making another new low against the US dollar.

Rains and mixed precip were scattered over the past 24 hours and remain so in the Midwest this morning; precip will continue to move through today and tomorrow and again early next week, with extended maps varied but favoring the wet side. Temp forecasts are definitely trending cooler into mid-April.

Letter to President Trump!


Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Time is running out, and we need to YOUR help TODAY.

America’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is critical to revitalizing struggling farm economies, reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and protecting the climate. But Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) exemptions to oil companies have destroyed demand for billions of gallons of U.S. biofuels. President Trump vowed to restore lost gallons, but the current EPA proposal only accounts for a fraction of the demand destroyed by the agency’s unprecedented use of oil refinery waivers. We MUST demand action NOW before it’s too late.

Join us TODAY in calling on President Trump to take action now to reopen biofuel plants and revitalize markets for America’s farmers.

Thank you in advance for your continued support.
