Market Journal: Market Analysts Look at Latest USDA Reports - UNL CropWatch, Sept. 14, 2012

September 14, 2012



Arlan Suderman, grain market analyst with Farm Progress, discusses the latest USDA crop production report on this week's Market Journal show, recorded at this week's Husker Harvest Days.  Suderman also gives his thoughts on marketing in 2013 and possible planting acres for next spring.

Also on this week's Market Journal:

  • Livestock Markets — John Otte, livestock market analyst with Farm Progress, says even a slightly bearish corn production report won’t provide relief for livestock producers.
  • Nebraska Soybean Board Update — NSB District Seven Director Ron Pavelka talks about some of the questions he’s received regarding soybean checkoff dollars from other growers at Husker Harvest Days.
  • Safely Grazing Stalks — As corn harvest continues across the state, livestock producers now have another forage option for cattle. UNL Extension Beef Specialist Rick Rasby describes how cows select what to graze in a field, so producers can minimize nitrate risk during fall and winter.
  • Foot Rot — Dr. Dee Griffin, UNL Extension feedlot veterinarian, talks about the possibility of foot rot in cattle grazing stalks this fall.
  • Weather Update — Al Dutcher, UNL Extension state climatologist, forecasts weather for the next week.
