Our 2016 Harvest Grain Policy is now posted. In review, it's basically the same as last year with the exception of a slight increase in storage rates on grain delivered after January 1st. Due to the low cost of propane and natural gas our grain drying and moisture discounts will remain at reduced rates.
During harvest we plan to do our best in accommodating incoming grain at all 3 of our locations. If there's something you need please feel free to contact us.
Grain Comments - Charles
Grains are trading higher Thursday morning with Dec corn futures up 2 cents at $3.31 and November soybean futures up 7 cents at $9.53. Weekly export sales were excellent on soybeans at 59.5 million bushels, well above trade expectations in the Mid 40's. Weekly corn sales were disappointing at 22.2 versus the trade range estimate of 30-37 million bushels. The big corn sale to Mexico this week will show up in next weeks USDA sales report. Year to date soybean export sales are 960 million compared to 757 million last year. Corn is at 730 million versus 414 a year ago. Soybean harvest is rolling along in the central grain belt with all areas reporting excellent yields. Farmers are selling which is driving the harvest basis values lower. Cedar Rapids has dropped basis 25 cents just in the past few days as have other areas of the country.
