    Broiler Economics: The (Not-So-Low) Harvest Low, Oct. 2016

    It is often the case that grain prices reach their lowest price of the year during the harvest or shortly after the harvest. This year appears to follow that pattern. Unfortunately, the harvest low is not quite as low as it otherwise would have been due to wet conditions in the US Corn Belt.

    Broiler Economics: Drought Danger Appears to Have Passed, Aug. 2016

    Two months ago it seemed that a drought in the Midwest of the US was likely. As a result, grain prices rose substantially in part due to those fears and in part due to crop problems in South America. The combination of a lower crop in both North and South America would have sent prices to exceptionally high levels. As it turned out, it appears that the market only has to deal with the lingering effects of the short crop in South America earlier this year not a short crop in North America. In fact, crops this year in North America are on their way to being record large.

    Broiler Economics: The Importance of South America, June 2016

    Just 10 years ago, the production of soybeans and corn in South America was significant but not determinant for world prices. Back then attention was usually focused on production in the US while South America was mostly ignored.
     
    The tables have now turned. Ignoring South America is perilous. A good illustration of this occurred in April when the combination of flood in Argentina and drought in Brazil led to a sudden increase in the world price of corn and soybeans. Traders and pundits alike were caught by surprise and unable to act quickly. The effects were huge because South America is now gigantic in world production and trade.
