Allendale Wake Up Call 101013

Oct 10, 2013


Good Morning! Paul is out of the office this week, celebrating his 40th anniversary. In place of his usual morning notes, Paul thought it would be a good idea to give our non-subscribers a taste of some of our other reports. Have a great week!

Corn 10/9/13: Early this morning there was talk about the light showers expected this weekend causing harvest delays, more talk that China bought 450,000 tonnes of corn last week and also word that South American corn acres will be slightly lower. All of this just so happened to occur after the 440 short term support level was hit to offer another short term bounce to start the day. Once again it is easy for…More Corn Comments

Lean Hogs 10/9/13: Yesterday we discussed the fact that hog slaughter is running under USDA’s Hogs and Pigs estimate. The September 1 to mid-October kill should be around 3.5% smaller than last year. It has actually run a large 6.9% under last year including this week. While this comparison with USDA’s pace is a very valid concern for us right now (bullish) we must also point out…More Hog Comments

Live Cattle 10/9/13: South Korea’s announcement that it had suspended beef purchases from one US beef plant may not have been the major issue here, but it added onto a growing discussion about demand. For the statistics, South Korea took only 7% of our exports in the most recent month available. Because this is a limited suspension, and only from one plant, we…More Cattle Commentary
