Wheat Plantings in Line With Expectations and Below Five Year Average- Kim Anderson of OSU Explains MoreFri, 14 Jan 2011 7:45:32 CST
Oklahoma State University Exxtension Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson believes that there were few surprises from the USDA reports from earlier this week. He does acknowledge that the supply demand numbers issued by USDA continue to confirm that we can expect relatively tight stocks of feed grains much of 2011- and that will keep the ag markets on edge.
Anderson says that the wheat seedings report also offered few revelations that were not already in the market- showing higher seedings of winter wheat in general and hard red winter wheat in particular than a year ago- but still slightly under the levels of the five year rolling average.
Anderson's comments came in a conversation that he had with Lyndall Stout of SUNUP- and you can get an early preview of his thoughts on the grain market this week by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
