    In this issue, The View From Here is "U.S. Farm Sector Income Seen Up 10% in 2019."

China and U.S. trade deal is still not settled.

    In this issue,  tightening Black Sea supplies and declining shipping rates improved U.S. wheat export prospects, but fresh U.S. dollar strength apparently curbed sales. Early-2019 hog slaughter averaged almost 6% over year-ago levels. The unexpectedly large supply truncated the usual early-year price rally. The USDA will soon release a timeline for implementing the 2018 Farm Bill. The early focus will be on farmer sign-ups for the PLC, ARC and dairy programs.

    NOPA March 2019

    15 March 2019

    NOPA reported that members crushed 154.498 million bushels in February. Despite falling below expectations, the crush remained a new record for the month above last year. Members produced 1.807 billion lbs. of soybean oil in the month, versus 1.993 billion lbs. in January and 1.768 billion lbs. last year. This pegged an oil yield of 11.69 lbs. per bushel, which was in-line with Doane’s pre-report expectation for a rebound from January. NOPA members produced 3.628 million tons of soybean meal in February, which calculates to higher meal yield of 46.97 lbs. per bushel. Finally, despite the smaller-than-expected crush, NOPA member soybean oil stocks rose to 1.752 billion lbs. at the end of February. This was well above expectations and spurred some modest selling interest following the report’s release.
