SWINE PRODUCTION

Let us show you how you can get the average price for the year and process your own soybeans into "EXPRESS SOYBEAN MEAL", Our mechanical process of extrusion is superior to conventional solvent extracted soybean meal due to the process in which it is manufactured gives it a higher nutrient availability.  This value allows you to feed what you already raise in the same manner you feed your own corn today!  2-4% increase in both feed efficiency (8-16 lbs. of feed per pig) and improved rate of gain (5-8 lbs. heavier pig in the same amount of days!) along with ease of grain marketing can add value and additional savings to your feeding operation.

DTN Closing Corn Comments
Darin Newsom
Darin Newsom
DTN Sr Analyst
December corn closed down 4 1/2 cents Friday and was down 8 1/4 cents on the week, ending within a tick of its August low. Even though this is the time of year when prices typically start to make a seasonal turn higher, corn has struggled to rise above its lows and anecdotes of higher-than-expected yields around the Midwest are likely the source of those problems. On the demand side, the export pace has been slow, but more sales were announced this week. Early Friday, USDA said 4.9 million bushels (125,000 mt) of U.S. corn sold to unknown destinations and 4.7 million bushels (120,000 mt) sold to Spain, both for 2017-18. All sales are welcome, but we can't fool ourselves that this fall's corn piles are going to disappear anytime soon. Technically, the trend in corn is still sideways, but vulnerable to new lows until we get farther past harvest. DTN's National Corn Index closed at $3.05 Thursday, priced 44 cents below the December contract and still holding above its August low. In outside markets, the December U.S. dollar index is up 0.48 after the U.S. Senate approved a budget plan and with many still guessing which candidate President Trump will select as the next Chairman of the Federal Reserve.
