12:03 EDTDD, ANDE, BG, ADM, CMP, MOS, SYT, MON, IPI, POT, CF, AGUU.S. feed grain supplies for 2013/14 projected lower
According to the latest WASDE report from the USDA, U.S. feed grain supplies for 2013/14 are projected lower with reduced production estimated for corn and sorghum. Harvested area for corn is raised 436,000 acres, but the estimated yield is lowered 1.6 bushels per acre to 158.8, reducing production 64M bushels to 13.9B. Corn ending stocks for 2013/14 are projected 161M bushels lower at 1.6B. The projected 2013/14 season-average farm price for corn is unchanged at the midpoint with the range narrowed to $4.10 to $4.70 per bushel. Projected corn use for 2013/14 is raised with feed and residual use projected up 100M bushels based on September-November disappearance as indicated by the December 1 stocks estimate. Corn used to produce ethanol is raised 50M bushels reflecting continued strong weekly ethanol production, a reduction in expected sorghum use for ethanol, and higher forecast 2014 gasoline consumption in the latest projections from the Energy Information Administration.
