Re: A recent source claims

BA Deere....the cheaper beans you mention were Jan thru Jun of 2016.

 

beans were $10+ per bu from July on that year.

 

soooo  perhaps either do more prudent homework or get off quoting a dishonest obvious agenda.

Re: A recent source claims

Maybe  a  different  look  would  be - WHY  DOES  USA  IMPORT  SOYBEAN  MEAL  AT  ALL  - ?

 

2016  -    317 Million metric  TON's 

2017  -   449  Million Metric  TON's

2018  -   318  Million  Metric  TON's   According  to Mundi Index  - ?

Re: A recent source claims

Wow! That is a very good question, k-289! I had no idea the US imported even a ton of meal, then I though maybe there`s some contract that Canadian feeder pigs had to be fed with a certain sourced meal in some cases or something like that.  Also Carolina hog operations might source Brazilian meal cheaper and I`m sure there`s some of that.   But 19% of US imported meal comes from China!   Tariffs anyone????  I sure HOPE that Chinese meal into the US is tariffed!

If  you  do  some  surCHING  lots  of  BIG   $$$  Funny  -  Happening  -  ? 

 

I'm  sure  maybe  the  $ellout   folks  from  hog-alina  have  $everal   Rea$on$  for  the  Import$  -  just  like  the  PayLE$$  Corp.  example  -  -  -

 

Ross  Perot  was  way  ahead  of  the  curve  -  and  a  waLL  won't  stop  the  ''''  $ucking  $ound  ''''  of   $$$$  to  foreign - corp.- headquarter- destinations  -   -   -

Well, we should`ve elected Ross 30 yrs ago, then we wouldn`t require the medicine now....and make no mistake we`re stage IV we`re down to asking Joel Osteen to say a good word for us.  Kinda late when + half the country thinks driving Amazon out of NYC and 70%...no 90% tax brackets will fix this.

Just watch, that imported Chinese meal is the vehicle that will likely cause the USA to break w ASF.

 

to bad the USDA does not Do anything helpful vs their continuous mode of Harming USA Agri. MO.

Re: A recent source claims

We mix our own hog feed. Six months ago, two of our ingredients were imported from China.  As African Swine Fever started to spread throughout China, I asked our supplier about the reliability and biosecurity of those products relative to ASF.  He said " We trust those suppliers."  But about two months ago when the price of those ingredients jumped up dramatically, I looked at the bag labels to see that now those products are produced in the United States.  I am relieved, and gladly pay more for a secure product.
