OSU's Kim Anderson Talks with SUNUP about What he is Hearing about the Oklahoma Wheat HarvestThu, 11 Jun 2020 16:59:10 CDT
Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.
Combines are rolling across the state and the grain is coming into the bins. Dr. Anderson says he is hearing that the test weights are really good. He says they are talking about an average test weight of 61 pounds and maybe a little bit higher, but protein has been lacking in some areas. The reports that are coming in show 8% protein to 15% protein. Dr. Anderson said if you get to below 11% protein, you see an 18 cent discount, and anything above a 13% is a 45 cent premium, "So there's some good premiums out there for that good protein wheat."
