Midday Update

·         Trade chatter emerged this morning that two, and possibly up to six, cargoes of Argentine soymeal are headed north to U.S. shores to alleviate tight supplies here.

·         The price relationship does work, suggesting that Argentine efforts to force farmers there to sell soybeans may be working to some degree, particularly at these price levels.

·         At least 16 vessels are on the docket to load soymeal at Argentine ports over the next few weeks, with six of them lacking a destination designation. Of course, any of them can be rerouted for the right price, which appears to be baked into the market.

·         Gulf bids for corn and soybeans are weakening this morning as the flow of supply from the country improves on good farm sales.

·         Tonight’s Arctic cold will put the northwestern 15% of the Southern Plains hard red winter wheat belt at risk of winterkill, although a third of the region will have some snow cover.

·         Soymeal is down $5.80 and down roughly $23 from its session high.

·         Soybeans are down 9 cents and down more than 30 cents from their session high.

·         Corn futures are up 6 cents after taking out the top of the recent trading range, but are a nickel off their high, but still supported by wheat.

·         Chicago wheat is up 15, Kansas City up 17 and Minneapolis up 15 cents as Arctic cold invades the belt.

·         Live cattle futures are 40 to 85 cents, but mostly within Tuesday’s trading range, supported by firming feeder cattle prices.

·         Feeder cattle futures are 35 to 55 cents higher on good cash demand.

·         Lean hog futures are 15 to 60 cents higher as December probes the top of its recent trading range on a stabilizing cash and product market.
