Kim Anderson Says Latest WASDE Projections Above Market Expectations, Causing Drop in PricesThu, 13 Jul 2017 16:16:19 CDT
This week on SUNUP! Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson joins host Lyndall Stout again, with an update on the US Department of Agricultureís latest World Agriculture Supply & Demand Estimates report.
According to Anderson, most of the information included in this report could be viewed neutral to slightly positive, given the current market situation. He reports the data shows global wheat production is slightly lower compared to the previous monthís report. Domestic ending stocks, though, were raised slightly, but lowered a bit worldwide. He also notes that the average annual price for the 2017/18 marketing year for wheat was raised by approximately $0.50.
The problem, however, is that the information in this edition of the WASDE report, was above market expectations. This caused the trade to adjust the price of wheat down.
Despite the dip in price, Anderson has good things to say about this yearís crop. He says HRW wheat this year is looking relatively good, with excellent milling qualities and good test weights at near 60 lbs. the average. However, protein levels are disappointingly low. Anderson says the takeaway from this yearís crop, is to consider protein premiums. He insists they will be around next year, too, and will be available to producers who find ways to take advantage of them.
