Market Comments

Sunflower prices had another good week with the birdfood market still giving support to old and new crop prices. Old crop seed prices gained 30 to 35 cents per cwt. 2015 new crop added 20 to 25 cents per cwt. Old crop high oleic cash bids at the Enderlin and Goodland crush plants were at $3.00 over NuSun prices. The Fargo crush plant has a bid out for old crop high oleic at a premium to NuSun prices as well. USDA released its latest supply and demand report this week. The U.S. crop numbers in the report were fairly benign and close enough to trade forecasts that traders focused more on the world numbers leading to a bearish reaction on the CBoT. Big global crops particularly in South America are gaining attention of traders. They believe there will be plenty of oilseeds into 2015. USDA estimated the Brazil soybean crop at 94 million metric tons (MMT) and the Argentine soybean crop at 55 MMT; both figures are unchanged from November. USDA did lower world soybean ending stocks near 89.9 MMT. This represents a slight decrease from last month and compares to 66.6 MMT last year.
