Selling corn before harvest

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jon Scheve, Superior Feed Ingredients, LLC The USDA increased the export demand pace for corn. Should the U.S. produce a trend line corn yield of 174 bushels per acre this year, then carryout would drop from the current level of 2.1 billion to just below 1.6 billion by next summer. If that were to happen, then corn is undervalued.However, the nearly perfect growing conditions across 90% of the Corn Belt is keeping prices down at the moment. The corn crop is setting itself up for a 180-bushel per acre national average estimate, which would mean 500 million more bushels and a carryout over 2 billion. If that would occur then Dec corn is overvalued today.On June 29 we will learn if the U.S. farmers planted more corn acres than estimated in the spring by the USDA. Expectations are that an increase of a half million to 1 million additional acres might have been planted. That would translate into an additional 100 to 200 million bushels to the carryout. This is not something that will help those looking for something to help rally this marketIn four of the last nine years (2009, 2013, 2014 and 2016) Dec corn futures drifted lower from mid-June through harvest. Weather analog years show 2009 and 2014 having similar weather conditions to this year so far.In five of the last nine years (2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2017) Dec corn had a pop in prices at some point later in the summer. Weather forecasts should be biggest driver of the corn market going forward. There is a lot of summer to go and it’s still hot in many parts of the Corn Belt, but rain makes grain.The trade war certainly isn’t helping the situation but the amount of corn exported is small in relationship to beans on a percentage basis. The U.S. produces over 30% of the world’s corn and soybeans, it’s not as simple as not buying our product. Why I want to sell corn before harvestOver the last two weeks I’ve explained why I use average yields as estimates when selling corn prior to harvest. I’ve explained that there are a lot of advantages for selling before harvest.Historically, the best futures levels tend to occur during the middle of summer. Over the last 30 years, the price for new crop corn has been higher in May than October 75% of the time. Conversely, storing corn, hoping for a rally where prices the following spring are higher than at harvest, only happened 50% of the time. When a farmer stores corn they need to also factor in either the cost of commercial storage or home storage and the interest paid on the value of the stored grain. Either way this extra cost reduces the chances for better prices from harvest to spring to less than 50%. Even in the last 10 years only 2010 and 2011 saw significantly higher prices after harvest that exceeded those of the summer before harvest. Taking advantage of market carry premium and basis flexibilityFarmers can also take advantage of market carry premium in the market. That is when future months are worth more than current months. This opportunity is only available if a farmer has sold their corn by harvest.There is also the benefit of basis increasing after harvest, which happens in most years, even if futures prices don’t rally.When considering the profit opportunity potential of market carry and basis there is a better chance to maximize profitability by selling before harvest than waiting until after, hoping for a rally while paying storage costs and interest.Despite these benefits, a lot of farmers are fearful of committing to selling their grain before harvest. Why I don’t worry about selling my grain before harvestCrop InsuranceMy crop insurance protects all sales up to 80% of my normal APH yield, so as long as I don’t sell over 80% of my APH yields, then my sales are covered against a rally. This doesn’t mean I will get to take advantage of those higher prices, only that I don’t have to worry about coming up with bushels to cover the sales I made if I don’t raise the crop. Missing out on future ralliesOften farmers fear missing out on futures rallies, so they wait. But from my perspective, every time I sell I could be potentially missing out on a future rally regardless of the time of year. Nobody knows when the highs and lows of the market will occur. Therefore, since I’m willing to presell 80% of my grain before harvest, I can still take advantage of future rallies, but they’ll just be on next year’s crop instead of this year. Pre-selling doesn’t keep me from profiting on rallies when they come, it just may change which year I use it. Breakeven uncertaintyI use averages from the last three years and assume a minor inflation increase. I make sure to include all expenses, including fair market rental value for owned land, cost of living expenses, equipment custom rates, etc. In the end, I’m usually really close every year. My biggest expense variable can be fertilizer prices. Still, even a $100 per ton price shift, which is pretty big, only adjusts my breakeven price by 11 cents or about $20 per acre. I can eliminate this risk buy purchasing in advance. Final yield uncertaintyYields actually have the biggest effect on my breakeven prices, more than any other variable. For every bushel produced above or below my average production, my breakeven price changes 2 cents or $3.50 per acre. Instead of letting this significant variable keep me from selling before harvest I use average yields for planning. I reserve the extra profits when yields are high, and pull from those reserves during dry years. This takes some discipline to do, but the extra profit potential makes it worth it for me.I think the benefits of selling before harvest outweigh the negatives. The market usually trades above my breakeven point at least once during the marketing year, so I try to take advantage when it does. 2017 might have been the first year in a very long time where that didn’t happen. So far in 2018 the market has already traded above the average farmers’ breakeven point and there is no guarantee it will happen again.Since weather is the main driver for corn prices and completely unpredictable, I need to have a grain marketing strategy in place that provides the best chances of profit potential every year. For me historically there is a lot of rationale to support selling most of my corn before harvest. Granted it takes discipline and planning, but it’s worth it for the increased chances to maximize profitability for my farm operation and minimize my risk exposure. Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE. Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process. After successfully marketing his father’s grain and getting his MBA, 10 years ago he started helping farmer clients market their grain based upon his principals of farmer education, reducing risk, understanding storage potential and using basis strategy to maximize individual farm operation profits. A big believer in farmer education of futures trading, Jon writes a weekly commentary to farmers interested in learning more and growing their farm operations.Trading of futures, options, swaps and other derivatives is risky and is not suitable for all persons.

The Dolly Zoom: Film History and Video Tutorial

first_imgZollySmash ShotTriple Reverse Zoom Vertigo ZoomSmash ZoomRetrograde Zoom Trans-TravTrombone ShotReverse Give your shots some depth with a dolly zoom. Check out the history of this popular film shot, as well as a few tips to nail it on-set.What is a Dolly Zoom?The dolly zoom is an easy film shooting technique in theory but not as easy in practice. It’s accomplished by zooming in while the camera dollies back, or vise-versa.The technique, when performed correctly changes the field of view for the background but not the main subject. So, the background will compress behind your subject making the frame feel compact (or if done the opposite way a dolly zoom will make the scene grow to feel spacious and open).Dolly zooms go by a lot of different names including: If you want to be a successful filmmaker you need to know every single term. Just kidding…most people just refer to it as a dolly zoom.History of the Dolly ZoomThe dolly zoom was ‘invented’ by a second-unit cameraman, Irmin Roberts on the set of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. Roberts made history with his new cinematic technique but was uncredited in the film.The technique was later popularized and widely used in many classic films including Jaws and E.T. Today dolly zooms can be seen in tons of major motion pictures, causing some to say they are overused. The following video by Vashi Nedomansky shows the progression of dolly zooms over the years.When Should I Use the Dolly Zoom?A dolly zoom is often used when trying to simulate dizziness or internal conflict. Simply put, a dolly zoom will make your subject appear crowded when you zoom in or isolated when you zoom out.For Hitchcock the technique was used to extend depth and a feeling of dizziness but for Spielberg the technique is usually used to convey discomfort. Obviously there is no set in stone rule for when you can and can not use a dolly zoom but like any other film technique, motivation is the key to determining whether or not it is appropriate for the your scene.Dolly Zoom TutorialThe following video by FilmmakerIQ demonstrates how to create a dolly shot. With some practice and a steady hand you can be a dolly zoom master.The always entertaining Ryan Connolly from FilmRiot demonstrates the technique in this episode of Film Riot (jump to 7:20 for the Dolly Zoom coverage):Want to try it in post?

BCCI willing to reconsider use of Decision Review System: Anurag Thakur

first_imgFor the first time in years, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is making all the right noises on the contentious Decision Review System, that it has so far refused to accept. (Anurag Thakur rules out 15-day window between IPL and domestic calendar)A few days after India Test Captain Virat Kohli suggested there should be a rethink on the technology, BCCI president Anurag Thakur  said that the Indian board is open to it.Speaking to the media on the sidelines of the Kolkata Test against New Zealand, Thakur said that BCCI would take a call on it after the October meeting of the ICC and they will take into account what the captain and coach Anil Kumble feel about it. (Watch: Kohli, Thakur set an example for Swachh Bharat Abhiyan)”I will be attending the Cape Town meeting in the second week of October. We’ll again have to look into the performance of DRS. If that is satisfactory, BCCI is open to use the DRS. It all depends on the outcome of the latest trials and the feedback of the DRS technology,” he said.The International Cricket Council (ICC) had earlier this year commissioned the MIT — one of the world’s leading technology institutes — in its bid to zero in on a uniform decision review system. The MIT was asked to give a report by studying the various systems in place around the world like those for edge detection and ball tracking.DRS STILL NOT FOOL-PROOFadvertisement”The only issue is whether the technology is 100 per cent.  Are your sure the decision made using DRS is 100 per cent correct? There are shortcomings and that’s why we have told the ICC Cricket Committee to look into the DRS and MIT was supposed to give a report. “I attended the Edinburgh meeting and they could not come to a conclusion whether they are fully satisfied with the DRS technology. Now I’ll be attending the Cape Town meeting in the second week of October. We will have a re-look at the performance of DRS. If that is satisfactory then BCCI is open to use DRS. It all depends upon the feedback and outcome of that meeting,” Thakur said”Today we have Anil Kumble, who represents BCCI at ICC Cricket Committee. Virat is the captain while Anil is the coach. They can discuss it among themselves and with the BCCI because we left to them in the past to come up with various suggestions. After the October meeting, we will take a call on that.”Thakur revealed that the MIT has been asked to review the technology and they have asked for more time.But as far as the BCCI is concerned, this is for the very first time that they are taking a more open stance on the use of the technology but still harp on the issue of 100 percent accuracy.”There are issues which we all are aware of. All I want to say is if we are satisfied, we are open to use it. There is nothing that is stopping us in using technology. We believe in the 21st century and in the digital age, you want something close to perfection if not perfect.”last_img read more

Province declares state of emergency as hundreds of wildfires continue to rage

first_imgThe state of emergency applies to the entire province and ensures federal, provincial and local resources can be delivered in a co-ordinated response to protect the public, which remains the provincial government’s top priority.During the 2017 wildfire season, the Province was in a provincial state of emergency for 10 weeks, from July 7th to September 15th. The previous provincial state of emergency before the 2017 wildfire season was issued in August 2003.“Public safety is always our first priority and, as wildfire activity is expected to increase, this is a progressive step in our wildfire response to make sure British Columbia has access to any and all resources necessary,” Farnworth said. “Taking this step will further ensure we can protect the public, property and infrastructure, and assist with firefighting efforts.”As of yesterday, there were 566 wildfires burning in B.C., with 29 evacuation orders affecting approximately 3,050 people, in addition to 48 evacuation alerts impacting approximately 18,720 people.The Province says that the extended weather forecast calls for continued hot and dry conditions, with a risk of thunderstorms in some parts of the province.Currently, more than 3,372 firefighters and contractors are actively engaged in fighting fires in all fire regions of the province. This includes 1,427 B.C. contract personnel, as well as 436 out-of-province personnel from Alberta, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Parks Canada, Australia, Mexico and New Zealand. VICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. government has declared a provincial state of emergency to support the provincewide response to the ongoing wildfire situation.Public Safety Minister and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth made the declaration at 8:30 Wednesday morning based on the recommendation from B.C.’s wildfire and emergency management officials.The state of emergency is initially in effect for 14 days, once issued, and may be extended or rescinded as necessary. The federal government has responded to and accepted British Columbia’s request for assistance. In the coming days, federal personnel and resources will be arriving in B.C. to assist with wildfire efforts.“Given the unpredictable behaviour of wildfires and the number of significant wildfires in all areas of the province, we’re bringing in the additional resources we need to keep people and communities as safe as possible,” said Doug Donaldson, Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development. “We’re asking British Columbians to do their part and follow burning bans and restrictions to prevent human-caused fires.”The state of emergency gives agencies, such as the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, Emergency Management BC, the fire commissioner and the RCMP, the authority to take every action necessary to fight the wildfires and protect people and communities.last_img read more

Ohio States Braxton Miller always knew he would return for senior season

Junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) avoids a group of defenders during a game against Wisconsin Sept. 28 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 31-24.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorFor the briefest of moments, coach Urban Meyer wasn’t sure what the future held for his starting quarterback, Braxton Miller.Miller was at the end of his junior season and potentially off to the NFL, leaving Meyer in search of a new starter.But that feeling of uncertainty didn’t last.“It wasn’t very long … Braxton and I have a very good relationship,” Meyer said Feb. 5 at National Signing Day. “We waited until after the (Orange Bowl). And I told him my opinion that he could become a very high draft pick if he continues to improve, and he said, ‘That’s what I thought.’ It wasn’t much more than that. We met together as a family. Had a very positive conversation and made the decision. Never at one time (did he) say, ‘What should I do?’ Because I wouldn’t tell him. That’s their business. But I gave my opinion as far as how much he could grow as a quarterback.”Miller didn’t have the same hesitation as his coach, and was confident he would come back.“I always knew I was going to eventually make that decision and I was going to come back,” Miller said Wednesday.The junior quarterback said his decision was easy because he still had things he needed to do for OSU.“Getting a degree, things like that,” Miller said. “You want to accomplish things that you didn’t accomplish in your first three years so I felt like I left little things on the field … it’s a lot of things I think about and that’s why I wanted to come back.”Miller announced his decision to return to Ohio State for his senior season Jan. 9 after compiling a 28-8 record in his first three seasons at the helm for the Buckeyes.The two-time defending Big Ten offensive player of the year, Miller’s versatility as a player isn’t lost on anybody involved with OSU football.“To replace a dynamic (player) like a Braxton Miller, what he can do with the football, with his feet, it’s thinning the play, those are all kinds of things that are not coached,” running backs coach Stan Drayton said Feb. 5. “A lot of what he does is not coached. That would have been devastating. Not to say that we would not have survived the moment … What he brings to the table is something special, and it would have been dearly missed.”Miller heads into the 2014 season as OSU’s eighth all-time leader in rushing yards, and he needs 715 yards to pass Eddie George and take over the second spot on that list. Coincidentally, Miller amassed exactly that many yards on the ground in 2011, the least productive rushing season he has had as a Buckeye.As long as Miller does not seriously regress as a ball carrier next season, eclipsing George’s career total of 3,768 yards should be an attainable feat.He is also eighth all-time on the career passing yardage list. If Miller can accomplish his third consecutive year of passing for at least 2,000 yards, he would surpass Bobby Hoying for second place and would be within striking distance of Art Schlichter’s record of 7,547 yards.Although the offense does return five starters — Miller, sophomore offensive lineman Taylor Decker, junior wide receivers Devin Smith and Evan Spencer, and junior tight end Jeff Heuerman — it loses four starting linemen, something that could play a big role in determining Miller’s success next season.“Now, Braxton Miller also did those things behind four veteran offensive linemen,” Drayton said. “To me, that’s the issue that we think about in that war room there, is how we put five guys in front of him where he can feel comfortable. We know he’s going to continue to develop and mature in his growth toward the game. However, we’ve got to put some guys around him where he’s feeling comfortable.”One of the biggest beneficiaries of Miller’s decision to stay in school is the corps of Buckeye wide receivers. During his career at OSU, Miller has attempted 668 passes, while all other quarterbacks on the current roster have a combined two attempts.Even though the receivers would have been fine no matter who was under center, wide receivers coach Zach Smith said having Miller’s experience returning is a big boost for the unit.“It’s huge. Braxton’s a great player and my guys love Braxton taking the snap,” Zach Smith said. “We’re confident with whoever the quarterback is but having a guy like Braxton that, one, is as talented a quarterback I’ve ever seen and two, if a play’s not there — my guy isn’t open, whatever it is — he can keep a play alive. The number of big plays that come from Braxton Miller’s feet and throwing the ball in a scramble situation … my guys love that.”Herman added that although a lot of what Miller brings back is positive it isn’t all going to be easy for the quarterback.“As improved as he got on the mental side of play of quarterback he can still get a whole lot better,” Herman said Wednesday. “He can make the same leap this year and still have work to do. So just the confidence, the studying of the game, studying of defenses and studying of our plays now that we’ve done kind of the same thing two years in a row.”Miller is set to get his next crack at the field Aug. 30 when OSU is scheduled to play Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. read more

Football Ohio States No 1 recruiting class not indicative of crucial misses

Urban Meyer watches the B1G Championship game against Wisconsin from the sidelines in the third quarter. Ohio State won 27-21. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorFive-star offensive tackle Jackson Carman had been Ohio State’s No. 1 target for months. He was the top-ranked player at a position of need and the top player in Ohio.In the end, Urban Meyer and his staff couldn’t seal the deal, and Carman ditched home for another top program — Clemson.Carman, along with defensive end Brenton Cox, safety Jaiden Woodbey and quarterback Emory Jones all left Ohio State for other programs in the final two weeks leading up to Wednesday’s decision date, leaving Meyer without even more transcendent talent than the 20 players that signed to his class Wednesday.On paper, the 2018 class is perhaps Meyer’s best ever as a head coach. However, it should not be overlooked. For a time, Ohio State had four five-star recruits with a chance at five. It ended Wednesday with two, while conference rival Penn State added its third.Carman wasn’t committed to Ohio State at any point in time like Cox, Woodbey and Jones. But it’s expected that the Buckeyes should land the top prospect in Ohio every year. Since Meyer arrived in Columbus, he has landed the top recruit in the state of Ohio every year with the exception of 2016 when five-star offensive tackle Tommy Kraemer went to Notre Dame. As for the other three, it’s difficult for a program to keep players who further from the school committed for a long time, when top programs close to home are knocking on the door.Woodbey, a five-star safety from California, committed in February, but flipped and signed with Florida State Wednesday. Cox, a five-star strong-side defensive end from Georgia, committed to Ohio State in April before decommitting Dec. 6 and signing with the Georgia Bulldogs Wednesday. Jones, a four-star dual-threat quarterback committed to the Buckeyes in July 2016, before flipping and mailing his letter of intent to Florida Wednesday.Those three decommitments in the last two weeks of the early signing period hurt Ohio State and have great implications.The first impact is the optics. Losing three players in less than two weeks, with two being five-stars and another being a highly rated dual-threat quarterback, makes it look as if the coaching staff is losing its touch. That’s probably not the case because Meyer has been an excellent recruiter his entire career and his 2018 class is still ranked as the top class. But given that Penn State landed a five-star Wednesday when Ohio State lost two, that’s added pressure for the Buckeyes’ coaching staff to hold onto prized recruits.Second, Meyer, and quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day had to find a second option to Jones late in the process. Now, they ended with a solid option in three-star Matthew Baldwin from Austin, Texas, who led his team to a state championship game Saturday, but Meyer probably would’ve liked to not rely on flipping a quarterback late to have one for this recruiting class. Baldwin was previously committed to Colorado State.Ohio State’s depth at safety isn’t hurt too much with Woodbey’s departure from the class, but with Cox’s decommitment, Ohio State had to flip three-star Alex Williams from West Virginia just to have one end in the class. Without Carman, it has just one offensive tackle in four-star Max Wray. Both are positions of need.Meyer has already had discussions to play Williams at tight end, so Ohio State would only have three defensive ends for next season, pending a potential commitment from four-star Tyreke Smith. Wray is the fourth offensive tackle on next year’s roster.Ohio State finally beat Alabama in a recruiting class, but it limped to the first finish line Wednesday with key misses that can impact a program for years. That’s something Meyer will have to live with. read more

Each time, they were incredible games,” he told France Football ahead of his side’s Group C opener against Paris Saint-Germain.“We played against teams challenging for the title, and we still managed to reach the final, so of course we can do it again. I’m sure of it. We can even win both, the Champions League and the Premier League. I don’t want us to put pressure on ourselves, but yes, everything is possible.“It’s a good draw with some good teams. PSG have some very good individuals and a great team.
