Grain Market Update

Added March 31, 2009

Upper Midwest (Des Moines, IA)
3/25/09
Compared to two weeks ago, organic grain and feedstuff prices were steady on light demand and moderate offerings with trade at a near standstill. There have been few new crop contracts written.  Producers continue to inquire about prices but are not interested yet in moving much grain.  Wheat mids ranged in price from $200 to $250 per ton. Hay prices have started to fall as producers need to move the hay they have been storing.

All prices FOB price per bushel except where stated (trucking cost needs to be added)

Eastern Cornbelt (Springfield, IL)
1.24.09
Compared to two weeks ago, organic grain and feedstuff prices were mostly steady.  Demand was light for moderate to heavy offerings.  Feed grade corn and wheat prices were steady.  Feed grade soybeans slightly lower.  Trading activity was light due to heavy supplies and weakness in the U.S. economy.  Producers have been making inquiries regarding organic grain prices.  However, with grain bins near capacity end users have been offering lower prices which has discouraged producer selling. 

All prices FOB price per bushel except where stated (trucking cost needs to be added)
