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 to a simple stomach.  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
March corn eked out a quarter-cent gain Friday and was up a half-cent on the week. That may not sound like much, but it could be considered a victory after getting past USDA's January reports without any significant bearish hit. Now that the market can settle on a record fall harvest of 15.15 billion bushels, traders can put their focus on demand and South America's next crops. Dec. 1 corn stocks of 12.38 billion bushels pointed to record disappearance of 4.56 bb in the first quarter, which is a good start for the season. The next step will depend on crops down south, and so far they are doing well, but there are concerns of too much rain in northern Argentina and not enough in either southern Argentina or northeastern Brazil. DTN's seven-day forecast is expecting rain in northeastern Brazil and northern Argentina. March corn continues to trade within its sideways range, above support at $3.42. DTN's National Corn Index closed at $3.23 Thursday, priced 35 cents below the March contract and near its highest price in five months. In outside markets, the March U.S. dollar index is down 0.24 with traders unsure of what to expect from the new administration.
