    New blow to China as African swine fever found in wild boar

    China's efforts to stem the spread of African swine fever were dealt a fresh blow on Friday when the agricultural ministry confirmed it had found the first case in a wild boar, deepening a three-month-old crisis for the world's top pork producer. The country also confirmed the first outbreak in the southwest province of Sichuan, the country's leading pig-herding region, raising the likelihood of a major impact on pork supplies in coming months. The disease was found in a dead wild boar in Baishan city, Jilin province, in northeastern China, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said in a statement published on its website.

    U.S. pigs out on bacon, ribs as trade wars cut chicken demand

    Americans are losing their taste for chicken and eating more beef and pork as President Donald Trump's trade wars reduce U.S. pork exports to China and Mexico and leave cheaper bacon and ribs at home. An expansion in the number of U.S. hogs and cattle is contributing to the change in diets by boosting supplies of pork and beef. Restaurants are seizing on the increases to promote hamburgers instead of chicken, while grocery stores have featured pork.

    U.S. ethanol producers feeling the pinch from Trump trade war

    NEW YORK/CHICAGO, Nov 9 (Reuters) - U.S. ethanol producers drew a bleak picture of their industry in quarterly filings and analyst calls this week, detailing how the critical farm belt business has been devastated by President Donald Trump's trade war with China and biofuels management policies that they say have tilted toward oil refiners. No. 4 U.S. ethanol producer Green Plains Inc reported a net loss of $12.5 million in the third quarter. CEO Todd Becker and others noted that China had been expected to import 200 million gallons of ethanol this year but has instead been out of the market for months due to Trump's trade war.

    Toxin in U.S. corn harvest poses latest headache for farmers

    North American farmers are finding increased levels of a plant toxin known as vomitoxin in this year's corn harvest, adding insult to injury for growers already suffering as the U.S.-China trade war hurts soybean exports and crop prices. Vomitoxin sickens livestock and can also make humans and pets fall ill, and grain buyers can reject cargoes or fine farmers for shipments that contain it. More cases than normal are likely in the corn crop because wet weather this autumn caused the fungus to develop while delaying harvests, Iowa State University grain quality expert Charles Hurburgh said on Monday.

    What's Behind The Rally In Hog Futures?

    Before you go checking your freezer for farm noises, we’re talking about lean hog futures, December contracts for which have climbed 10 percent in the course of a couple weeks to $58 near the end of October. Much of the increased buying can be chalked up to an outbreak of African swine flu in southern China that prompted the culling of 200,000 pigs. After bottoming out in August on worries that tariffs on U.S. pork and cattle products would decimate demand in China, which accounted for .1 billion in exports over 2017, lean hog contracts have rebounded to approach a solid $60 resistance level.

    China grain imports plunge in September amid trade war with U.S., higher prices

    Imports of sorghum, largely used in China to feed the country's massive livestock herd, fell 76.9 percent from the same month last year to 90,000 tonnes, according to the data, dragged down by Chinese tariffs on cargoes of the commodity from key supplier the United States. Despite that drop, imports of sorghum were higher than expected, said Darin Friedrichs, risk management consultant at INTL FCStone in Shanghai. "It's definitely higher than expected given how reliant (China was) before on the U.S.," he said.

    Canadian producer prices drop for second consecutive month

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian producer prices fell 0.5 percent in August, pulled down for the second consecutive month by lower prices for primary non-ferrous metal products, Statistics Canada said on Friday. Analysts in a Reuters poll predicted a 0.3 percent decrease from July, when prices declined by 0.2 percent after six monthly gains in a row. Lower prices for aluminum and cooper and their alloys helped drag down the primary non-ferrous metal products sector by 3.4 percent, the largest month-on-month decrease since July 2017.

    8 Affordable Commodity Stocks to Buy

    Prices for many commodities -- from gold to livestock -- are under pressure and that's funneled through to some companies in the commodities space that might be unfairly maligned. Will Rhind, founder of GraniteShares exchanged-traded funds, says the stronger dollar is one of the major factors pressuring commodity prices. Most commodities are dollar-denominated, making the goods more expensive for buyers outside of the U.S. Trade wars are a concern, too, Rhind adds.

    Brazil's BRF sees rising competition for corn from ethanol makers

    Brazil's largest poultry processor BRF SA has seen rising competition for corn supplies in the country's center-west region coming from plants producing corn-based ethanol, Chief Executive Pedro Parente said on Wednesday. Corn-based ethanol is a relatively new trend in Brazil, but has been developing quickly in center-west states such as Mato Grosso due to the ample supplies of the cereal. "We have seen an increase in consumption of corn by ethanol makers in Mato Grosso and Goiás, they became a relevant corn user," said Parente at a presentation in a seminar organized by broker and analyst INTL FCStone in Sao Paulo.

    Crop damage mounts for EU farmers after torrid summer

    European farmers are counting the cost of a summer heatwave that has shrunk cereal harvests and shrivelled pastures, leaving some farms struggling to survive and shutting the EU out of lucrative export markets. The severe weather in Europe has coincided with adverse growing conditions in other major grain producing zones such as Russia and Australia, raising the risk that supplies in exporting countries will be eroded to their smallest in years. The latest harvest estimates have underlined the impact of drought and heatwaves in northern Europe.

Higher steel prices and physical aluminum premiums have been among the reasons US companies are facing cost pressures. Meanwhile, the Trump administration seems to be performing a balancing act for now.
