The corn crop is projected at 14.0 billion bushels, down from last year with a lower forecast area and yield. The yield projection of 174.0 bushels per acre is based on a weather-adjusted trend assuming normal planting progress and summer growing season weather. The season-average farm price for corn is projected at $3.30 to $4.30 per bushel, up 40 cents at the midpoint from 2017/18.Meanwhile, the U.S. soybean crop is projected at 4.2 billion bushels, down 112 million from last year’s record crop on lower acres and lower yield projections. The 2018/19 U.S. season-average soybean price range is forecast at $8.75 to $11.25 per bushel compared with $9.35 per bushel in 2017/18.USDA upped the 2018/19 U.S. wheat crop five percent at a projected 1.8 billion bushels on higher acres and a slightly higher yield. However, winter wheat yields are below average in the drought-affected states of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The season-average farm price is projected at a range of $4.50 to $5.50 per bushel.Full analysis is here in the HAT Newsmaker Podcast with @MikeSilverSr of Kokomo Grain.

Hilda’s men go straight to the top in JCR elections

first_imgThe first mixed year at St Hilda’s college has seen JCR elections overwhelmingly dominated by men.Next year’s President, Treasurer and Secretary will all be male, with no women even contesting the last two positions.Oxford Women in Politics President Katy Theobald said she found the results disturbing. “The fact that in a single year there has been a shift to under-representation presents an interesting but very concerning problem. Often such an imbalance is attributed to a lack of role models but at St Hilda’s there were of course clear examples of women holding these positions for many years.”She suggested that a quota could be introduced, and said “more should be done to ensure equal numbers of men and women run for a position, so that potential female candidates are not overlooked.”President-elect Jesse Harber, however, said he felt gender was irrelevant. “We’re representing those who elected us, and I wouldn’t want to second-guess them.”“I don’t think quotas are necessary, and I think they may do more harm than good. A quota would just paper over the cracks – female under representation in the JCR is a symptom of deeper issues.”He said that the issue had rarely come up during campaigning. “It was certainly mentioned a few times, but mostly the policies and vision were discussed.”Current JCR President Katherine Terrell expressed mixed feelings about the outcome of the election. She said she did not feel that sexism had been an issue at Hilda’s hustings, and that for the positions in question “there is no reason why either gender would do a better job.”However, she agreed with Harber that the under-representation of women stemmed from wider issues. “There is a university-wide lack of representation for women in student politics, as well as in many other areas, which needs to be recognised; few women putting themselves forward for Presidential and VP positions is a phenomenon that many colleges find.”She added, “I look forward to a future in St Hilda’s JCR, and across the university, where men and women are equally represented in student politics.”St Hilda’s was Oxford’s only all-female college for thirteen years. In 2006, the governing body voted to admit men. The student body voted in support of the motion by a margin of just 55% to 45%.Harber said male students had found the integration process very smooth. “Sometimes it’s difficult to remember that we’re the first year to be mixed – everywhere you look you see both male and female students.”last_img read more

Run around!by Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United legend Alan Shearer slammed the performance of Liverpool’s strikers during their FA Cup defeat to Wolves.Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi were both given rare starts with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all dropping to the bench.Asked if he was not impressed with the forwards, Shearer said: “Not impressed? “You’ve got one guy Sturridge out of contract at the end of this season. You’ve got Origi 18 months left on his contract.“Do something, run around, cause the centre-halves a problem. They have done nothing.“Playing as individuals, look, 30 yards apart. He wins the header here, where’s Sturridge in case he wins that header? Get over and help your team-mate.“Look at him, he’s not even moving towards the ball. Quite content, not working as a partnership, no movement, no running in behind.“Flat, no energy, they’ve not done anything to upset those Wolves centre-halves.“I can’t even say how they’ve had a sweat on, the two forwards, because they’ve done nothing.“The manager should be going absolutely berserk, particularly at those two in the first half because they’ve added nothing whatsoever.” last_img read more
