12:36 pm
geiger. the beef cow population in the u-s looks to grow by more than three million head by 2020.. and the economic signal for a rebuilding herd was researched by rabobank food and agribusiness. in a report this year.. they say the geographic distribution of the u-s cow-calf herd will be more concentrated.. combine that with trending low rowcrop prices... they thought there could be an opportunity for landlocked producers to add an enclosed production facility to their operation.. and it could be viable. it doesn't take a lot of ground.. and many farms have
12:37 pm
to the farm.. this could be a way to generate another income.. and integrate a younger generation back into farming.. it provides diversity. "not only a premium label beef, but any kind of ultra high quality cattle. the ability to have the cattle in there for an aggressive ai program, the ability for identity traceability. all those reason, yeah it could be a really good small market niche." close says it's a fair question to ask about the recent free fall of beef prices.. he thinks the short term issue is tonnage.. long term.. the market will still be driven by moderate to tight cattle supplies. over the weekend, mauricio macri was elected as the new president of argentina.. and farmers there are expected to quickly boost exports..
12:38 pm
increasing the global supplies of wheat, corn, and soybeans... macri takes office december 10th, and vowed to lift currency controls. export taxes and currency control led to farmer protests... and the storage of a record soybean harvest.. nearly 22 million metric tons worth. macri is considering a 90-day window of zero export taxes on beans to spur sales from the stockpiled crop. so far this year.. argentina has shipped 17 point six billion dollars in grains and oil seeds.. the lowest since 2009. that's affecting the grain markets "a bit of a sloppy trade, the big news has been recently argentina elections. new president coming online with that. this will be bullish for the ag sector down in argentina." "as he is going to relieve some tariffs. with the markets they did get hit hard overnight on sunday off that. but have recovered very, very well. their actual selling was short term, and we bounced back yesterday, and again today in the beans pretty well. seasonally, thanksgiving week has been bullish rags, you've been seeing a little bit of that. there's some
12:39 pm
light short covering as we come into this shortened trade period." "kind of an erratic trade this week so far. just a weave in the cash trade to develop. futures obviously carrying a premium right now. and hopefully, with packers being a little bit short bought from what we're hearing, we'll hold the cash this week and keep at least 130 plus in the december futures." "still very, very technically oversold obviously. get a lot of spillover at times with the cattle still remaining kind of weak. and just waiting really i think to come in here closer to the december contract expiration. hopefully, start to see some major profit taking, it's just short covering after that." and that wraps up our show for today.. thanks for joining us on the agribusiness report.. see you next time. we put stories up every day.. check out who-tv dot com..
