Subject: sigh.. what is this? Quantitative Soybeans?

you just can't lose 30 MMT of sales without some serious effect..

Nobody has a spare 30 mmt's to fill the void.  South America is going to have a SMALLER Soybean crop than they did 2 years ago.. Conab's estimate yesterday for Brazil.. at 113.5 mmt's.. IF Realized that would only be the 3rd largest crop... not a RECORD 125 mmt's like was thought earlier..  The WASDE's last update was at 116.5.. there are other smaller estimates.. under 113 plus Paraguay probably has some more to trim.. "down by a third from last year's 9 mmt's"  Currently 7.5 at WASDE.. headed to..??  6.8'ish..??

Of course the standard operating procedure is to assume a record crop at the start of every new year and then walk it back.. (or increase it.. which has happened.)

Argentina was the one whom dropped the ball last year.. 55 mmt's turned into 37.8 mmt's after revisions.. etc.  This year.. they may hit or slightly exceed the 55 Mark.. the WASDE I believe is at 54.5 mmt's.. so.. "possible."

Anywho.. what is occuring is that the big push.. ALL from North America in Oct - March .. then ALL from South America from April - Sept.. is changing.

As noted by last week's truck jam on an unpaved road shows.. the infrastructure to MOVE that much TONNAGE (by truck no less..) does not go well..  So.. again your assumptions that US Sales will flatten out this year are flawed..  IMHO.. China has delayed purchases.. again I still see us hitting close to the 58 mmt's that we did last year.. as "it has to come from somewhere.."

Here's the latest..  The WASDE will "probably" trim some more Chinese imports as they trim South American production.. but still before all that.. It's not hard to come up with US exports over 60.. which does seem like a stretch.. probably trim China imports back to 85'ish.. and US around 58 then.

??  fwiw.
