The June 1 on feed report released this afternoon looks somewhat negative, especially in terms of May placement activity: on feed 104%; placement 100%; marketing 105%. Note that the average placement guess was 96%. Furthermore, last year's feedlot in-movement during May was historically large, the largest seen since 2007.

Wheat Cash Trend


September Chicago wheat closed down 2 1/2 cents and September K.C. wheat was down 4 1/2 cents at $5.05 1/2, posting a loss of 28 3/4 cents on the week. Winter wheat did have two days of higher prices this week with concerns that too much rain on SRW wheat crop areas is damaging wheat quality. In the larger picture, however, there is no significant threat yet to the notion that world wheat production will only be marginally lower in 2018-19 and wheat supplies are likely to stay high.
