Simulated Feed Ration

The weight of the protein component on the total cost varies as the two components prices change.CLAL.it developed a new tool in order to study the dairy cow feed rations costs. The Simulated Feed Ration is a theoretical feed model, composed by 70% of corn meal and by 30% of soybean extraction meal (protein content: 44% as fed). Soybean is price driver for the protein component of feed ration, while corn is price driver for the energy component. The monthly price of the products corresponds to the average monthly quotation of the Commodities Exchange of the Milan Chamber

Estimates for the new season [Corn and Soybean - n°5/2017]

The monthly report of May 2017 released by the United States Department of Agriculture (World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates Report – WASDE) presents the estimates for the new season 2017-18. Gobal production is lowered both for Corn (1033.66 Mio t, -3% from 2016-17) and Soybean (344.21 Mio t, -1%). Corn production declines mostly in China (215 Mio t, -2.1%) and in the United States (357.3 Mio t, -7.1%), which account for the 56% of the global Corn production. Partly offsetting are larger crops projected for the EU and Canada. Soybean production decreases from last year’s records in the U.S. (115.8 Mio t, -1.2% from the previous season), Brazil (107 Mio t, -4.1%) and Paraguay (9.4 Mio t, -8.7%) as yield return to trend levels. The U.S. Corn outlook for 2017-18 is for lower production, domestic use, exports and ending stocks. Feed, seed and industrial use is projected to rise 1.1% mainly due to increased use of Corn to produce ethanol, which is up 1.3 Mio t, reflecting the expectations of gasoline consumption growth. Soybean supplies, crush, exports and ending stocks in the U.S. are expected higher compared to the 2016-17 season. The U.S. Soybean export share is projected at
