Dr. Dave Kohl of Compeer Financial, Scenario Analysis Helps Turn “Cant’s” Into “Can Do’s”, August 23 2017

    Hi. I’m Dr. Dave Kohl professor emeritus agriculture economics at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia. Of course, we’d like to welcome you back to the MacroCLINIC. Today’s theme is, “Turning a Can’t Do into a Can Do.” Oftentimes when I’m out on the road working with agriculture producers, they will say, “Well, I can’t

Dennis Smith from Archer Financial Services, Pork Margins Expected to Narrow, August 22 2017

  LEAN HOGS Cash was sloppy again yesterday with the late report confirming prices paid were down $1.50.

LEAN HOGS Cash was down .50 yesterday with more of the same in store for today. While the cutout was down .57 at $102.21 packer margins remain highly profitable. This week’s hog slaughter is projected to be 2.214 million, or unchanged from last week and up only 1% from last year. So going into the

Jim Long Pork Commentary, U.S Lean Hog Prices Continue to Go Higher, May 23rd 2017

Jim Long, President and CEO Genesus Genetics The latest data we have on U.S pork exports is March (227,955 metric tons) which was 16% higher then the same month last year.  March topped the previous monthly high set in November 2016.  A U.S dollar decline that we are seeing currently should support U.S pork exports
