Cambria Plant 920-348-5868


Market Commentary
May 27, 2015
Good Morning,
Rain makes Grain!! If this saying holds true we are going to have a great crop this year. It’s definitely a little early in the growing season to be predicting a bumper crop, but the weather has been as close to perfect as we could ask for. Rainfall totals over the last couple days around our plant were reported at 1.5-3.5 inches. With the exception of a few small areas where the rain came down hard on Tuesday, the rains have been slow and steady allowing the ground to soak it up.
Yesterday afternoons crop planting report came in with 92% of the US and 93% of the WI corn crop planted. The first crop condition report showed the US corn crop at 74% Good/Excellent and the WI corn crop at 81% Good/Excellent.
Reports released yesterday state that Iraq plans to boost is crude oil exports by 26% to a record 3.75 million barrels per day in June. This move is an attempt to undercut US shale drillers that have been increasing supply with prices increasing. As Iraq floods the market with oil, this will send oil prices back to the prices we saw this winter when oil was in the $40-45/barrel range. At these levels, the US drillers will pull out of the market and shut down. What does this mean for grain prices, lower with no support from the energy markets. Crude oil and corn have mirrored each others movements historically and I would expect the same to be true this time.
This morning corn is down 2, wheat down 2 and soybeans are up 6.
Have a Safe Day!
