CORRELATING SEVERE WEATHER AND
U.S. GRAIN MARKETS
May is a volatile month. Weather changes can impact your dairy instantly and severe weather is possible nearly every day. We’ll look at the best tools available to monitor and predict hail, straight-line winds, floods and tornadoes. Learn how to use quick and simple web resources that alert you to severe weather risk. And, as planting for 2017 wraps up, we’ll explore long-range projections for corn and soybean yields across the country as we focus on the June-July-August forecast and its potential for heat and moisture stress. Use this information to effectively predict movement in the grain markets as well as potential weather-related stresses that can impact herd health.

WEATHER OUTLOOK FOR SUMMER AND FALL
June is a pivotal time for grain markets. Long range weather outlooks for July and August can make or break a farming operation, and grain markets are often most volatile during these months. In addition to providing rain and temperature forecasts for the next 30 days, we’ll assess the current progress of the growing season and look for stressors across the country that could impact grain prices moving forward. Analyze how past weather events have moved the markets during summer and provide the latest long range forecasts through the end of the growing season. Learn how to forecast excessive heat and drought – these two factors have a huge impact on your operation’s input costs because they negatively impact yields, herd health and milk production.
