Quote of the Day
"I live by this credo: Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations. Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something to laugh about if you try hard enough."
The next USDA report is Crop Production: September 12, 2019.
Market Comments for August 22, 2019
Grains were mixed again today without any real direction to the market. Beans started to the plus side and faded through the day and wheat did the opposite, starting negative and finishing to the plus side. Corn finished a fraction better than unchanged. Export numbers for wheat beat expectations, helping them finish higher. Pro Farmer wrapped up today without any news to move the market. Yield estimates were below the USDA but Pro Farmer usually is. Moving forward the trade will be looking at weather forecasts to see if we will have a long enough summer and fall to get the crops to maturity. The next major USDA report is the WASDE report released Sept 12th.
