A Triple Whammy- Kim Anderson Explains Lower Wheat Prices- and We Have This Weekend's SUNUP Preview

Thu, 19 Jan 2012 19:56:18 CST

A Triple Whammy- Kim Anderson Explains Lower Wheat Prices- and We Have This Weekend's SUNUP Preview It's a triple whammy that has slammed wheat prices in recent weeks- and Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson is saying this weekend on SUNUP- there could be more downside ahead.

Dr. Anderson tells SUNUP host Lyndall Stout there are three reasons why wheat prices are in retreat- US and Global Wheat Stocks that are relatively high, Wheat acres in the US that are three percent larger than a year ago- and corn prices that are moving lower- so much so that corn prices are no longer a support point under cash wheat prices. Anderson points out that over the last couple of years, we have seen corn prices higher than soft red winter wheat prices- and that has been a strong support under wheat prices.

Kim indicates that corn acres may zoom higher this spring- and that has placed the proverbial wet blanket over corn prices- and as a result- wheat prices as well.

You can watch Lyndall and Kim Saturday morning on your local OETA outlet during the SUNUP telecast- or you can catch our audio preview of this duo by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.

Besides Kim's wheat market comments, Lyndall and the crew have a great program lined up Saturday morning- here's program rundown:

Josh Bushong updates the progress of the winter canola crop with timely management advice on planted acres, plant conditions, insects, harvest planning and Canola U information.

In the Mesonet report, Al Sutherland provides soil moisture levels, fire index information and the latest Keetch-Byram Drought Monitor.

In Cow-Calf Corner, Glenn Selk explains the importance of exposing a newborn to colostrum in the first few hours after birth.

Shannon Ferrell discuses farm labor management issues, including I-9 forms, exemptions, and wages and hours.

In Naturally Speaking, John Weir talks about the wildfire that burned north of Edmond on Aug. 6, 2011, and its impact on surrounding vegetation.
