WASDE: Wheat Ending Stocks Slighly Lower

January 12, 2012
 
 

WHEAT: U.S. wheat ending stocks for 2011/12 are projected slightly lower this month as reductions in expected domestic use mostly offset higher projected exports. Food use is
projected 5 million bushels lower based on flour production data recently reported by the North American Millers’ Association for July-September 2011. Feed and residual use is projected 15 million bushels lower as December 1 stocks, reported in the January Grain Stocks, indicate lower-than-expected disappearance during September-November. Seed use is raised 4 million bushels based on the winter wheat planted area reported in Winter Wheat Seedings. Projected exports are raised 25 million bushels based on the pace of sales and shipments to traditional markets. Increases for Hard Red Winter, White, and Soft Red Winter wheat more than offset a reduction for Hard Red Spring wheat. Ending stocks are projected 8 million bushels lower at 870 million. The 2011/12 season-average farm price is lowered 10 cents per bushel on each end of the range to $6.95 to $7.45 per bushel.

Global wheat supplies for 2011/12 are projected 2.7 million tons higher with production raised for Kazakhstan, Brazil, and Russia. Kazakhstan production is raised 1.5 million tons as nearly perfect growing season weather is reflected in a new record yield. Production is raised 0.8 million tons for Brazil, in line with the latest government estimate. Production for Russia is raised 0.2 million tons reflecting the latest official estimate.

Lower 2011/12 projected exports for Australia are more than offset by increases for the United States and Russia. Global consumption is raised with a 1.0-million-ton increase in expected domestic disappearance in Kazakhstan where record supplies will be difficult to store and maintain. Global ending stocks for 2011/12 are projected 1.5 million tons higher at 210.0 million.
