|Friday, June 24, 2016 - Thirsty Corn : New Report says 44% of Iowa abnormally dry or worse|
What farmers think of this year’s growing season depends upon the amount of rain that has fallen on their fields.
In northeast and east-central Iowa, where rain has fallen when needed if not sooner, crops have taken advantage of an exceptionally warm June to stretch their leaves to the sky.
In southeast Iowa, where some farmers have not had measurable rain for three weeks, the corn leaves are rolling up to conserve moisture each morning.

|Friday, May 27, 2016 - Advice on Protein Prices|
The quote below is from the 5-26 Van Trump report and concerns the very big spike in soymeal prices over the past 60 days. Soybean meal for the July contract went from $269.60 on April 8 to $415.30 today. Why? The comments below are a large part of the explanation. I would expect lower protein prices sometime in the next 30-60 days. If we don’t get the reasons are related to Brazil, Argentina and other macroeconomic factors and not supply and demand.
“Keep in mind meal has now moved to highs not seen since late-2014 and the traditional fundamentalist are scratching their head as the "cash market" seems somewhat non-responsive. Most of the traditional fundamentalist will tell you a setup like this could end at any moment with the bullish rug being ripped out form under the market in the blink of an eye. I would agree, especially if we are talking about the markets a few years back. Today's markets however are much more complex and different than in years past. Sector allocations and cross-hedging by the funds have added a new twist. As we can see in today's market the funds continue to defend their extremely long position in the front-end, just as I had anticipated. Their position is not based on traditional fundamental reasoning or on historical supply and demand data. It is more complex and wide-reaching. They are trying to protect assets in various classes and *dark-pools and are using markets we are not accustom to seeing them in... i.e. the soybean market!”
* - Dark pools are offshore non regulated trading platforms – outside the regulation of SEC/US Treasury and not on BT/NYSE/NYME. We are talking for Pirates and friends of Putin. If you have to ask you shouldnt be trading there.

two biggest U.S. competitors for soybean sales on the world market,
Brazil and Argentina, are making inroads in the corn market. They are
forecast to limit the U.S. share to 32% this marketing year, a drop of
5 percentage points from last year, says USDA. U.S. corn exports of 42
