Dr. Kim Anderson Says Wheat Prices are Good and Forward Contracting might be a Good Option for ProducersThu, 28 Jan 2021 17:20:21 CST
Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.
This week Dr. Anderson says market prices this week are relatively good, "If you look at that Panhandle and Snyder you got about $6.15 for forward contracted wheat for harvest delivery. You come over to Medford its at $6.30, and that basis is a minus 15 at Medford, and a minus 30 at the Panhandle and Snyder. You go back last year, you had the Snyder price at $4.55, you had the Panhandle Price at $4.65 and Medford price at $4.75. We got about $1.50 or better price this year. One other thing I need to point out is you got a minus 15 and a minus 30 basis now for the 21 crop. You had a minus 25 or minus 35 and a minus 45 basis last year, so stronger basis, better prices."
