Market Comments

Sunflower prices had a good week with the birdfood market still giving support to old and new crop prices. The birdfood market continues to trade at a premium to crush plant prices. The USDA Planting Intentions Report for 2015 sunflower acres was in line with trade expectations. This has resulted in sunflower prices remaining strong gaining 40-45 cents per cwt. so far this month. Talk of lower Argentine prices and slower demand in China has offered resistance to CBoT soybean and product values. Last week's USDA supply and demand report was viewed by traders as neutral for oilseeds. Ending stocks estimates were within the range of pre-report expectations and reflected the data from the USDA Grain Stocks report released last month. Globally, soybean ending stocks increased slightly. USDA left Brazilian soybean production unchanged, but increased its forecast for Argentina. USDA estimated the global sunflower seed crop near 40.3 million metric tons. This represents a slight increase from their March estimate of 39.8 MMT and compares to 42.9 MMT last year. Market attention will continue to be on the South American harvest and spring weather in the Midwest.
