Grain Markets Negatively Impacted by Today’s Report


The National Ag Statistics Service (NASS) issued two major reports this morning. The June Quarterly Grain Stocks report measures grain in all positions as of June 1st. It is used to gauge both on farm and commercial inventory of corn, soybeans, and wheat. Due to the reports only being released quarterly, expectations are often quite variable which leads to a volatile trade. The Planted Acreage report indicates the amount of acres planted to principal crops and is based on surveys taken in late May and early June. Below are summaries of both reports.

 

Quarterly Grain Stocks

Corn stocks reported at 3.8 billion were above the average guess but within the range of expectations. Soybean stocks were reported at 405 million bushels which was slightly higher than pre-report estimates.

Market Reaction: Negative for both commodities.

 

Planted Acreage

Corn planted acreage was reported at 91.6 million acres which was slightly below pre-report estimates at 91.7. This total is the smallest number since 2010, but still the 5th largest since 1944. Soybean acres were a massive 84.8 million acres, well above pre-report estimates at 82.2. This total is easily a new record for soybean acres, some 7 million higher than the previous record. The number is up 11% from a year ago and reflects higher soybean prices through the spring and wet weather during planting, which may have pushed some corn acres to beans. The USDA is expecting record soybean acreage in MI, MN, NE, NY, ND, OH, PA, SD, and WI.

Market Reaction: Negative for both commodities

 

At 11:43 a.m. New Crop corn is down -19 ½  and soybeans are down -60.

Hassebrook Picks Raybould for Lieutenant Governor


Lincoln, Neb. — Chuck Hassebrook was in Lincoln this morning, where he announced that he has chosen Jane Raybould to be his Lieutenant Governor.

“I could not ask for a better running mate than Jane,” said Hassebrook. “She is a respected businesswoman, small business owner, and job creator. As an elected official she has stepped up to address tough budget issues by implementing cost cutting measures that have allowed Lancaster County to serve its citizens effectively. But the most important attribute of a leader is a good heart. Jane is committed to public service, and has pursued elected office and other leadership positions to serve the people, not to serve herself.”

 

Raybould accepted, saying, “I’m honored to join Chuck’s ticket as the Lieutenant Governor, where I look forward to continuing my service not only to Lancaster County, but to the entire state of Nebraska. I also look forward to campaigning and working with someone who I greatly admire and respect.”

Jane Raybould is currently serving as a Lancaster County Commissioner. She was up for re-election this year, but will be withdrawing her name from the ballot. The Lancaster County Democratic Party is charged with appointing her replacement. Jane will finish her term as a county commissioner, which ends in January 2015.

Raybould also works as the Vice President of Operations for B&R Stores, which include Russ’s Market and Super Saver. There are 18 B&R stores across Nebraska and Iowa, which are family and employee owned.
