    Broiler Economics, US Harvest Well Underway, Oct. 2014

    The progress of the US harvest is slow, but the total is expected to be huge. Harvest is slow in part due to the difficulties of bringing in an enormous crop and in part to some untimely rain, but the total amount is no longer in question. The most recent crop progress report of October 14th shows that only 24% of the corn was harvested, down from the average of 43% on that date. Crop condition is encouraging with 74% of the corn crop in good to excellent condition. Soybeans are 40% harvested; down from the average of 53% on the same date and 73% of the soybean crop is in good to excellent condition. Harvest will accelerate in the next few weeks.

With every passing day crop failure becomes less likely and it becomes more likely that a record amount of both corn and soybeans will be produced in the US this year. As a result, the market prices for both corn and soybeans are falling.
