Grain Market Update

Added November 15, 2010

Corn Price Update November 2010
Upper Midwest (Des Moines, IA)
11/03/10
For the following states: WI, MN, IA, SD, ND, NE, KS, MO

Organic grain and feedstuffs prices were steady to firm, with the exception of feed grade corn, which averaged higher.  Demand was light to moderate with moderate offerings as new crop grain is being tested and farmers and buyers weigh their options on marketing this year. Spot market trades were limited this period, as many buyers have contracted the majority of their new crop grain purchases for delivery at a later date.  Monthly and fourth quarter average prices are located below.

All prices FOB price per bushel except where stated (trucking cost needs to be added)
