    By Maria Dampman

    Published Aug 17, 2018  

    In 1611, William Aldred took his neighbor to court. Thomas Benton was being sued for “erecting a hogstye so near the house of the plaintiff that the air thereof was corrupted. ” In common language, the pigs stank, making it impossible for Aldred to enjoy his home which, in his words, had become “unbearable to live in. ” The courts sided with Aldred, saying the odor was “depriving him of his dignity” and therefore, a violation of his rights...

    How Feasible is Organic Corn?

    By Vijayalaxmi Kinhal

    Published Aug 14

    By Angie Setzer

    Published Dec 14, 2018  

    · A week full of rumors, confirmation and headlines gave everyone a lot to talk about, but surprisingly left the markets somewhat directionless. · The week started with Reuters reporting China was looking to purchase 5-8 mmt of soybeans and that sales were just days away. President Trump agreed in an interview Tuesday saying China was in the market buying large amounts. Excitement continued to build into Wednesday as additional news reports indicated $180 million worth of sales had been finalized, with subsequent reports indicating even more buying throughout the day... The weaker feed demand outlook is likely being driven by both the desire to include less protein in rations as a way to reduce soybean demand, and from the historic spread in African Swine Fever...

    Published Jan 4, 2019  

    2019 is coming in with a bang across many sectors of the market. Outside market volatility feels unprecedented with wild swings higher or lower on seemingly little in the way of major headlines, while commodity traders work to pin down short-term demand in the face of a USDA shutdown. Traders returned after the New Year’s holiday to fresh conversations surrounding Chinese state-buyer soybean purchases. While several private traders indicated China was in the market again enquiring about prices and looking to buy, there will be no confirmation of actual amounts until the government reopens or the beans are shipped... We have been watching the development and spread of African Swine Fever in China with horror as one case quickly turned into ten and ten into one hundred...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: September 14, 2018· Updated USDA numbers, continued trade negotiations, African Swine Fever and a hurricane captured most of the market headlines this week. · The USDA updated their crop production and demand estimates mid-day Wednesday giving us further insight into what they expect to take place in the year ahead. Prior to the report many traders were anticipating the USDA to lower corn yields slightly, while increase soybean production expectations. The USDA followed along with pre-report ideas when it came to soybeans but ended up lifting corn yields expectations much higher than anticipated... · While China has had their hands full dealing with the spread of African Swine Fever with confirmed cases continuing to spread the announcement it was discovered in 2 wild boars in Belgium near the French border struck fear into the hearts of many hog producers across the globe...

    • Not much in the way of significant news throughout the week, as typical for this time of year in the grain markets most traders are already in holiday mode. Soybeans have managed to hold their own after a rough start to the week, while corn and wheat are testing the downside of the most recent trading range. • Corn traders continue to monitor what is taking place in the crude market as selling pressure there has ramped up significantly. The crude complex has lost 31% in the last 7 weeks, hitting its lowest level in a year to close out the week... • In addition to divided ideas on how the country should deal with trade tensions African Swine Fever was confirmed in the country’s largest pork producing region, with officials announcing a significant crackdown on the disease and transportation of hogs going forward...
