Feed Outlook: May 2012
by Thomas Capehart
and Edward Allen
Outlook No. (FDS-12e) 26 pp, May 2012
As of May 6, 71 percent of the U.S. corn crop had been planted, compared with an
average of 47 percent in 2007-11 and 32 percent in 2011/12. As of the same date, 32
percent of the expected crop had emerged, compared with an average of 13 percent in
2007-11 and 6 percent last year. Early planting boosts the projected yield for 2012/13 to
166.0 bushels per acre, compared with last year’s weather-reduced yield of 147.2. Rapid
planting and emergence is also likely to affect supplies during the last quarter of the
2011/12 marketing year, resulting in reduced prospects for the June-August quarter feed
and residual disappearance.
