Kim Anderson: USDA's WASDE Report Comes In Close To Expectations

Fri, 10 Feb 2012 06:20:50 CST

Kim Anderson:  USDA's WASDE Report Comes In Close To Expectations Dr. Kim Anderson reports the recent WASDE report from the USDA was very close to expectations. Corn was projected at 997-million bushels, it came in at 801; beans were projected at 269-million bushels, it came in at 275; and wheat expectations were for 868-million bushels and the actual came in at 845.

Anderson said it was good news that wheat ending stocks were lowered by the USDA compared with last month's 870-million bushel figure.

This means the markets are favorable and he sees them being bullish on corn and beans and slightly bearish on wheat.

International numbers won't provide much price impact as they were right on with industry estimates.

Bloomberg reports record corn, bean and wheat prices, with corn at $6.20, beans at $11.45, and wheat at $7.20. Income in corn and bean country has been up 28 percent and farmland values are reflective of that trend. Farmland values across the midwest are averaging $2,350 an acre. Iowa prices are averaging $5,600 per acre.

Anderson says increases in corn and wheat acreages, however, will mean slightly lower prices next year.
