SwineCast 1007, United Soybean Board User Panel Offers Proteins Perspective

SwineCast 1007 Show Notes:

  • Just as we're interested in our customers' perspective, our suppliers like to hear our likes and dislikes. At the United Soybean Board’s February meeting, a panel of animal nutritionists explained to soybean farmers what they’re looking for in their animals’ diets. With both the poultry and swine industries represented, we thought you'd find it of value. Panel members included Randy Mitchell, vice president, technical services at Perdue Farms, for the poultry industry perspective and Dr. Dean Boyd, technical director for The Hanor Company, for the swine industry perspective. Gordon Denny, USB’s soybean meal market analyst, moderated the panel.

How Are Feed Vs Fuel Going To Look In 2011?


Dr. Robert Wisner, University Professor Emeritus at Iowa State University, has published an in depth report on the corn and soybean availability for biofuels in 2011.

Corn use for fuel ethanol production has become the second largest source of demand for the U.S. crop, with total corn use for this purpose expected to be only about 10% less than its use for livestock and poultry feeding in the year ahead.

He offers several points that those in animal production and crop production need to keep in mind:

  • Corn supplies will be tight and some rationing of demand likely will be needed in the year ahead.
  • With the very small reserve supplies of corn that are expected at the end of August 2011, more corn acres almost certainly will be needed next year to meet continuing demand growth.
  • In the year ahead, we anticipate further ethanol expansion, but at a much slower pace than in recent years as the industry approaches a “blend wall”.
  • With low stocks, corn prices have the potential to be very volatile.
