after an october rally. next wednesday usda releases its latest supply demand report and markets are already gearing up for adjustments to yield expectations.traders spending the week positioning themselves for the report. commodity brokerage firm, f-c stone, putting out its own pre-report the 2016 soybean estimate to a nation wide average of nearly 53 (52 point 8) bushels to the acre. usda put yields just above 51 (51.4) in october. fc stone is also forecasting corn to top 175 (175.3) bushels to the acre as a nationwide average. usda a couple bushels lower (173.4) than that in october. a new wrench in brexit the parliament must now sign off on the british government's plan to leave the european union. a high court ruled parliamnet must give final
5:02 am
will likely slow, not stop, brexit. the federal reserve sending signals that it's on track to raise interest rates next month. during the two day meeting this week, the fed says it's not raising its benchmark interest rate in november, saying it's staying the course leading up to the election. after the meeting, the fed said the case is there for a rate hike, but waiting for further evidence to do so. the news came as no surprise to analysts, as a rate hike is already priced in for december. corn harvest is now right on track with average, jump in a week. soybean harvest now surpassing average at 87 percent complete. that's 2 point ahead of average and an 11 point increase in just a week. and cotton harvest is trailing by 2 points, at 46 percent complete. california, south carolina and texas look to be behind the most when it come to cotton harvest this year. those are the headlines...meteorologist mike hoffman joins us now with weather...mike, how are things
5:03 am
overall very nice although it does depend on exactly where you live now first let's check the drought monitor it has gotten worse in the southeast southern portions of the mississippi of being seen what looked like a month ago and the change has been gradual but it is being getting drier and drier and drier in the southeastern and south central portions of the country it's also starting a little dry there in the high plains states in the eastern colorado western kansas it's actually improved a little bit in new england so let's go day by day as we start off on monday this could be the wet area but this front around the northern and central plains really would just bring scattered showers idol see this is being anything heavy it'll be moving quickly will start a week nice and dry in eastern third of the country and most of the west except for the pacific northwest where that system just kind of stalls out for a little while over the pacific northwest even on in the wednesday that system over the plains on monday moves to the
5:04 am
the folks finish up our best but it does continue to show some scattered showers in the southern portions of the plains states heading toward friday then you can see what's happening this storm system started two of these this could be good news for some folks in the southeast getting some decent rains out of that system late next week for the following weekend while ago this cold air coming south or it is not arctic air but nonetheless it is turning colder in the northern plains even some snow into the northern great lakes are longer ur next half hour. when we come back, three veteran analysts join me from kansas city to investigate the current market situation. so, don't go anywhere.

happened, looks like it may not happen. it's up in the air. there is uncertainty. the markets are amoral it's not about what's right or wrong or whether what they want or what they just like certainty to cause they can adjust a certainty. and politicians they know will say what they want a say in order to get elected, but then they lead maybe a different way or whatever, they may lead the same way. but they have a track record to know what to expect when suddenly things got election in this bizarre campaign. and it looked like suddenly maybe donald trump might win. well donald trump doesn't have a political background. so he says what is going to do, but will he? he doesn't have a political background so it's uncertainty. and the federal reserve in particular doesn't like uncertainty. one thing that they have a good track record of, is when there's uncertainty do
5:09 am
so the dollar plummeted, that's normally good for commodities but we saw the stocks turn lower, we saw commodities turn lower, the charts, major commodity indices turned lower. when a major commodity indices are turned lower their selling contracts of corn soybeans wheat et cetera and so it was risk off at that point and everything saying. with these dynamic markets right now, and heading into so much more uncertainty bushels let's start with old crop if we look a total crop the first question for producers, what did you do last summer? if you've got a lot of hedge positions in place or if you've rolled down taken money off the table, you're in a little different situation. you can shop for a firmer basis. and normally will see that base is the spread between cash in future start to narrow as we come out a harvest in most of the bushels find a home and you try and learn that carry. we're
5:10 am
good storage gains for weeding corn out in the next spring you could go ahead and sell march or may futures .now if you if you haven't done that if you don't have those hedge positions, you've got a much more difficult situation because you've got a weak cash bid and you've got large supplies. i think you still wait it out but you may want a sell just a little bit of your inventories just because we have rallied off those harvest lows. we were thirty cents off the low well not only next week we have this election but we also have a major usda report coming out where we think usda may raise soybean yield that kind of the projection, you would think that that then would pressure prices but markets haven't really reacted normally so far this year, so the usda does raise yield next week what do you expect .i think looking at what usda has done i think you probably will see higher bean yields next week. everything you hear other country is that bean yields are
5:11 am
e maybe somewhat riddiculous was fifty four, fifty five bushels per acre then the market is probably going to go the other way on us. but the fact is, if we get a half a bushel, bushel and a half, i think the market's ready for that. and the fact we talked a little bit about the demand side for being too still very very good. and that and that's gonna be the good thing for the next six months until the brazilian crop comes on. real quick fifty four, fifty five he said that kinda seems ridiculous but that you guys came out with your own projections for this week, and and maybe you think he's not that far off? our survey-based estimate came in a fifty two point eight. that was up three tents of bushel from our october estimate. that is now our estimate for the final january number. one point four above usda's old number. so we think he gets a little bit bigger but it's close. so demand has been impressive for soybeans, can this continue and does it continue to support prices ? i think you'll see continued strong export programs
5:12 am
and there's very little supply out of south america we've got a huge forward bookings commitments. the chinese signed a couple of frame contracts and they are executing on those. so that you'll see some three million metric ton weekly export shipments i think in soybeans before the end of the year. all right well speaking of south america they planted their plant in an impressive pace that means they could harvest earlier what could that mean for our prices? will

5:15 am
your local office today or raboag dot com all right let's talk about south america now. they've been pointing at an impressive pace looks like they could harvest earlier than normal normal do you think that it's in our export demand earlier the normal as well? oh sure. i think there's no question that if we get that crop out of brazil, particularly soybeans, that they're going to kind of ease their way into our particular marketing season come you know early late february that sort of thing. i think the big question argentina. you've got the export tax for wheat and corn at zero. you still got a relatively high export tax for soybeans and soybean products. on their primary product exporter not a soybean product. a lot of people said and we they're not going to plant soybeans and they're gonna plant soybeans because they have a crush industry to support. but i think the question is: what is the magnitude of that and particularly on the product side but you look actually at oil you
5:16 am
ned about that but i think that demand is very good globally. and so i think the big questions argentina what happens in argentina brazil's gonna be there to compete with us no matter what happens. let's switch gears a little bit our line a look at this macro picture. fed announcing this week it's not raising interest rates in november which we expected. it sounds like they will in december. so what happens if they don't raise interest rates in december? and i think we would have seen a stronger statement preparing the markets for december had we not had the uncertainty the presidential election. and once we get into january, and the concern is there if donald trump does win, the fed may say well we're gonna wait until its first one hundred days, and then we get into january, the normal rotation of the fed brings more doves onto the voting membership and the hawks rotate off. and so janet yellen may have more of a board that she likes and gets along with, and quell the
5:17 am
that would suggest more weakness in the dollar which tends to be good for commodities . but keep in mind even when the euro was bouncing this week, people were selling the euro. the money in the know was moving out of europe in two swiss francs. so we see the japanese yen playing into this is well so this is real concern i think longer term the path of least resistance is still higher for the dollar. and what happens to the to the dollar depending on the outcome of the election? what are you is just blowing smoke at you. there's so many pieces to that equation. global money flows are--we're talking trillions of dollars in a heartbeat so if you trade in news you lose that's it that's a fundamental statement of the market. and i think that's a case here. i think everyone's being defensive. we do have the money going to the sidelines so there is definitely
5:18 am
certainty is resolved. but what it is, we don't know yet. what other maco elements are you watching right now steve? well i think you know we talked about south american and what's going brazil. what is the rio doing? when we look at it from u s agricultural export think about the currencies that are traded the weak trade with. obviously what's happening with the real is extremely important. is that real going to continue to weaken against the dollar? or is it going to strengthen the dollar? i mean it's we've had both in the last few months. so what is at. and also i think the question we talked is about the mexican peso you know we often think of the glamour of exports of globally-- going to china and going places in the world. but really when you look at our major customers are north and south of our border. and we need to make sure that the peso in canadian dollar are compatible with with our dollar so we keep that trade flow going. those are very very important trade flows for us. arlan what about these
5:19 am
found a bottom here short-term in this cattle market? well maybe a short term bottom. the last cattle on feed report was encouraging. we finally started to cut down on our numbers. unfortunately comes at a time when demand tends to go into a holiday season. we have more turkeys more hams etcetera so it's a concern. we've seen some signs of encouraging export demand that's helped out . but this past week's trade is really disappointing. we thought we'd see some more build on the cash online auction was the first sign of that and when the rally started to lose some moment to the upside, i'm watching that 108 level for the december contract . but fundamentally right now with all the red meat we have on the market it's tough to see some above that. but long term you're very concerned about these cattle prices? yeah. we're pretty bearish long-term because the cattle cycle still expanding. typically that's four to five years up, four to five years down. it's a it's an eight to twelve year cycle. so if it continues to expand over time,
5:20 am
were talking a hundred right now so that he do right now real quick what did you know right now to prepare for that ? a number one if you're going if you're still expanding, look at that a little harder. a secondly, watch the hog and chicken guys because they can cut quicker than you can get. good advice thanks so much stay with us will get a closing
5:21 am
5:22 am
all right time now for closing thoughts. arlen let's start with you. on bullish agriculture, i think there's going to be opportunities. but keep in mind that the big cycle like we had 2008, 2009 with high prices, those come about once every thirty years. the money in the system, the market will have volatility will have opportunities but you're going to have to have a risk management approach. all right allan? keep in mind, the market's not a hockey stick. in
5:23 am
flat, it's more of a pogo stick. it goes too far down you press the spring and you bounce back. average annual trading range in corn is $1.19 a bushel in one year. all right steve? i think a couple quick things--i think one, and i agree with all the more bullish in agriculture. we are in a tougher time period. i think this is were you look for the opportunism to diversify that operation to look at what are the new opportunities out there. it could be things that you may not agree with that look at that. . i think also the other thing to be thinking about is the future may not be where the opportunity is, the basis is where the opportunity is and farmers should be merchandising . all right steve thanks so much stay with us we have a much more farm report when we come back receive a free trial of the daily market letter and gain knowege about current market conditions fromt eh professionals at bower trading. view the markets like never before. go to bower trading dot

for some, this election season
5:26 am
voting has started or already taken place for many of you, for most of us next tuesday will be the day when this unprecedented campaign season reaches some kind of end point. it is important, i think, to address one all-too-common complaint before that happens. throughout this prolonged process, i have heard one gripe just a little too often: i dont like either y my count at least twenty-five people declared a candidacy for our highest office, and we have been narrowing that field down for too many months. dissatisfaction with the final choice strikes me about as lame as someone going to applebees and slowly flipping through their forty page menu and saying i dont see anything i like or standing in a 10 by 15 walkin closet and moaning i
5:27 am
beans ive checked the constitution. and the declaration of independence. and the magna carta. and the code of hammurabi. and not once do any of them establish a right to be happy with your choices. in fact, since we have made the lives of candidates pretty miserable throughout this process, a little agony on our part may be simple fair play. your duty and mine is clear: to go to the polls and make the best decision we can. your motive does not matter. your attitude does not matter. but your obligation to show up is, i believe, absolute. our system is plagued with process problems, but in the end, the credit or blame will fall at our feet. someone once said that in a democracy people tend to deserve

our special edition of u-s farm report from kansas city. we have much mroe head. it's been a long wait for those farmers wanting to plant roundup ready 2 xtend. that's our farm journal report. what ever happens to the presidential hopefuls who never become president? andrew mccrea has that story. and in customer support its time to get the vote out now for the headlines, producers outlooks are fading as their focus shifts to 2017. that's according to the latest ag economy barometer just released this week. purdue univesrity and cme team up to guage the sentiments of producers each month and release findings in the barometer. . this month, the barometer dropped to 92. that's a 9 point drop in just a month and compares to the 116 last ocotber when the groups started
5:31 am
the delcine in producers sentiments was largely driven by producers' thoughts on the long-run health of the u-s ag economy. also to note, the share of prorducers expecting bad times financially ove rthe next 12 months rose to 79 percent in october, which is an 11 point inncrease in a month. the kansas city fed, says farm lending at commercials banks fell in the third quarter but is still high. the volume of farm loans starting in q3 fell 19 percent from a year ago but remain elevated by historical standards. operating loans continue to make up a large number of requests-- counting for 60 percent of all loans in 2016. banks also increasing their use of farm real estate as collateral for these loans. a third of all operating loans are now being back by the farm. the epa and the u.s. army corps of engineers now have an extra month to file their defense of the waters of the u.s. rule, or wotus. the sixth circuit court of appeals extended the deadline to file the response in defense of the rule to january 18th of

"we've seen so far in october as much as five times the normal prec. fo rhte month to date. this is a hallmark of a developing la nina as that wet weather in the northwest." "we've seen very warm conditions stretching the south and southern plains into the southeast. with that comes very dry conditions unfortunately," for this winter, he's expecting a warm, dry forecast for the southern u.s. states and colder, wetter forecast for the northern areas. he says it may not be bone shattering cold, but definitely colder than last year. also,

5:36 am
representatives of monsanto say they're projecting over 15 million acres of the 2 xtend soybeans in 2017. but the new technology in the toolbox has its controversy: farmers can plant the seeds, but cannot spray the intended herbicide.the herbicide is not approved by epa. the public comment period has closed and epa is reviewing the comments received on the herbicide proposal.yet, some farmers illegally sprayed earlier this year, which drifted and destroyed thousands of acres from spray. the epa is issuing federal search warrants in at least four missouri counties looking for evidence of misuse. it's one reason why indiana farmer, george kakasuleff is communicating with his neighbors, even though he's not spraying. "you can't assume people have roundup anymore. most of them know we've had xtend for now for two season. we

eachother has,"state officials in those investigations pointing to older formulations of dicamba, being sprayed over tolerant soybeans, which are more volatile and prone to drift. american soybean association's ron moore partially blaming epa for not approving the new formulations of dicamba like they said they would."if they had approved the product for use this summer, we wouldnt' have the issues we have now."yet he anticipates the epa approvals for the new dicamba which comes in xtend doesn't have the drift potential. it's not as volital as the old formulations." these farmers say the technology is crucial- especially when it comes to weed resistance..

not only in illinois but the u.s. has increased in frequency dramatically over the last couple of years," however, hagar believes there is no single tool used to reduce weeds."people think, well, we can't control it with this, we're going to switch over here and all we do then is start that cycle of selection over again," the approval process may be out of the producer's control.. but farmers like pond are hopeful it's an here are a lot of new products out there. we just need to get them out there and put them in the farmer's hands so we can use them," reporting for u.s. farm report, i'm betsy the dicamba controversey over herbicide

this presidential elections been one for the record books. and this tuesday, there will only be one winner. so what ever happens to those candidates who become so close to being named the next president of the united states? that's this week's american countryside. every four years presidential candidates will criss cross this nation to big cities and small towns to try to earn peoples votes. but es end here in norton kansas. norton, kansas is a town of just under 3000 people in the northwest part of the sunflower state. it's home to the first state bank, chartered in 1902. besides serving the community's banking needs, the century old business also houses a very unique museum of sorts. this gallery was created in 1965 by former owner and president bill rouse. he put in 54 years of serve at the bank and he had this idea after reading the book they also ran by irving stone :15) :34 on screen: lee ann
5:47 am
defeated. one of those unsuccessful candidates was horace greeley, founder of the new york tribune, who lost the 1872 election to ulysses grant. greeley once passed through norton on the stage coach line and that perked the interested of rouse, the bank president. and when he read the book and read about horace greeley being one of those who ran for president, upon finish the book he began collecting the portraits from the library of congress and its been here for 51 years. rouse created the gallery, not to mock, but honor easily be forgotten. in some cases you'll find pictures of those who were president but were then defeated in a reelection bid, at least one picture for every presidential contest in our nation's history. most of the pictures are of people whose names, while not lost to history, are not well known. we have henry clay he is called our consistent loser. for 24 years he vied for the office
5:48 am
times but we only have one picture of him on the wall every four years lee ann shearer pays special attention to the presidential election. the outcome of that race determines the updates she needs to make to the gallery. when we find out on election day who becomes our president i'm going to take the first runners up and i need to secure a 16 x 20 black and white portrait and i also need to write the newest biography there's no charge to see the gallery. it's open during urs and several folks do find their way to western kansas to see the only such place of its kind (my visitors are quality visitors. if i don't have the quantity the people that come here really want to be here. they drive from all over the country, and every four years on inauguration day, the gallery will host its own event.(we have our own inauguration. so on january 20th at 10:30 of the morning, we'll
5:49 am
e the new president will get a parade down pennsylvania ave, the runner-up gets the small ceremony in norton, ks attended by 30 or so folksb ut a place, nonetheless, to record and honor their run for the white house that came up a little short. to date, no one enshrined here has ever come to visit although lee ann hopes they view it as an honor to be included here. as you look at the wall of this gallery it's interesting to think what if dewey had in fact defeated truman, of if wendell l. willkie or alf landon had become president. its called the also ran gallery but its important to remember they also gave much to our country, for that reason it's good to come and visit. traveling the countryside in norton kansas im andrew mccrea thanks andrew. you can hear more of andrew's stories by visit american countryside dot com or download the farm journal tv app. when we come back, machinery pete has this week's
