Big Spread in Soybean Meal Prices
Wed, 19 Nov 2014

Meanwhile, there are reports that a feeder in North Carolina bought 45,000 tons of French feed wheat. This would be the first significant volume of French wheat shipped to the US since 2002.

Post-Harvest Grain Rally Already Happened
Wed, 19 Nov 2014
Utterback Marketing president Bob Utterback is not expecting much of a post-harvest rally in the grains.

You should be pricing yourself out and looking for basis improvement to lock yourself up and be satisfied." Utterback says farmers who have unpriced grain are the most at risk in this market.
