Grain Update

December Update.

Hopefully everyone had a great Thanksgiving. For some it was a day off before another few days of harvest, as we are still taking grain at all of our locations. We are starting to wrap up harvest for the most part, so I just wanted to say thanks to all for turning to Premier for your grain needs this fall. We were glad to have decent weather. outside of a few stretches of snow/rain/cold.

Corn prices have been relatively quiet lately, holding above $6 for the entirety of fall. We are seeing corn shipments lagging behind their necessary pace, but that bearish factor is offset by production issues in the western corn belt. Locally, WI producers in general saw good yields on both corn and soybeans. Soybeans have been a little more active, catching some life after river levels recovered to some extent in late October and helped by soybean oil strength. Soybean sales and inspections have been strong as well. 

Now that the crop is in the bin, it’s a good time to set some selling goals and make a plan both for bushels in storage at Premier and grain in the bin. Contact us today to make a plan

In today’s world of lower commodity prices and tighter ROI for profits, growers are sharpening their strategies for crop inputs. Herbicides are an area that continues to receive scrutiny. So why should residual herbicides remain at current rates or even be increased in the future?

If you are among the 11 members of my audience (including my mom) who read my newsletter last month, you’ll recall that I was being a little braggy about getting caught in a snowstorm in the St. Paul area. Then we got hit with a snowstorm here a few days later. I guess I’m not as special as my mom thinks I am.

Despite the possibility of a few more nights of sub-freezing temperatures in the last week of April, our agronomy locations are not slowing down as they enter their busiest season. Our agronomy division and producer members are working hard to plant this year’s crop, with long days and short nights being the norm. It’s important to be extra cautious during the next couple of months. Farm machinery will be frequently entering and exiting fields and wide loads will be encountered on the road. Whether you’re driving to work or moving to the next field in your tractor, always be aware of your surroundings and never assume that others can see you. Take it slow and be safe.
