Grain Comments Weather has been nearly ideal for harvest the past couple of days and it looks to stay that way for the rest of this week. Nationally, 31% of the corn has been harvested, up only 7% from last week, but that should take a big step forward this week. Most years we are past the 50% mark by this time. Soybeans are at 53% harvested compared to last week’s 40% and the average of 66%. This year’s drug out harvest has provided a small bounce in the market. With harvest picking back up it has applied pressure on the prices, but the market looks to be range bound for now. Besides the harvest progress there isn’t a lot of news to trade on this morning. Currently December corn is up a nickel at $3.53, November soybeans are up a dime at $9.54, and December Wheat is up a penny at $6.02. 10/21/14
Corn Offer Block Program The program is designed to help you place an offer to sell corn above todays market at designated prices based on chart technicals. Block prices shown for corn are based on CBOT chart targets combined with our local basis value. Offers placed must be in increments of 1000 bushel lots. If the target price is reached and grain sold you may defer the income to January 2015. NCCA south division price targets may vary slightly due to different basis value. Call Trevor or Charles in our grain department for details at 785-336-6153. Target #1 $2.88 Target Achieved on 10/14 Target #2 $2.95 Target Achieved on 10/14 Target #3 $3.00 Know what seed you're planting and grain you're shipping will take front stage in 2015 To meet the Food Safety Programs established by USDA this next season, Grain Elevators will be required to implement specific procedures in tracking and monitoring grain quality and movement through elevator facilities. This will include a traceability program on grain delivered from your field or farm bins. This may include grain with aflatoxin, damage or infested grain, treated seed or issues relating to specific varieties which have not been approved by certain export markets. Here comes the hard part. Elevators cannot get insurance coverage to cover any of these issues which would place the liability back onto the farmer delivering the grain. These are all things that can be managed by letting us know what your dealing with and planning ahead. The liability issue might be something you should check with your insurance agent on this year.
