He says they’ve only had four inches of rain since the end of May and the crops are showing signs of stress. “You can start to see from last Monday to this Monday, the light spots are starting to deteriorate a bit,” Coleman says. “The corn to starting to shrink a little bit and the beans are rolling up just a little bit.” But Coleman says the pollination of corn appears to be going well.

    An ag marketing advisor says another rally in corn and soybeans this summer is possible.  But Paul Mussman, president of AgWest Commodities, says time is running out for a significant up move. “The major reports are done—the plantings, the intentions—all that’s past us,” Mussman says. “We’re into weather now.

Peter Vitaliano with the National Milk Producers Federation says whole milk sales are now trending upward.  “Fluid milk had been on a long decline, but in terms of fluid whole milk, that decline was very sharply reversed around 2013 and we’re seeing increased sales month to month of 5% year-on-year.” He says other fluid milks are using more milk fat as well, and along with butter, it’s keeping demand strong.   Continue reading DMI says milk fat demand rising thanks to checkoff research at Brownfield Ag News.     &nbs […]
