"Capable device required what a twenty one minutes after five o'clock good morning to you and winter hasn't left completely yet but it does show signs of spring in gym for sale is one of those signs of spring and we look forward to his visits throughout the growing season throughout the gardening season but as I mentioned even though we can't get into the fields he adds in a heavy way in the heavy schedule there are some reports that are due out this spring in one of those reports the traders and the producers farmers will be watching are the planting intentions survey USDA conducts the survey every March and then on March thirty first we get that report from the USDA but ahead of that report we do hear from some private firms who do their own checking on what farmers are going to be doing and that this week we did get the results of the annual survey done by Allendale based in McHenry Illinois they surveyed farmers in thirty states between March two and March thirteen and the last day of the month we'll get that planting intentions report then we have to wait till June to find out how the intentions played out once producers got into the field we'll get to the end of June we'll get to the final report on planted acreage but let me share with you the Allendale report that came up this week according to that survey farmers are expected to plant ninety four million six hundred thirty one thousand acres of corn that would be above the latest USDA forecasts for ninety four million acres and would certainly be a of the eighty nine point seven million acres that were planted in twenty nineteen and the the Allendale surveys saved farmers will plant eighty three million seven hundred forty thousand acres of soybeans that number would come in below the latest USDA forecasts for eighty five million acres and well below the seventy six point one million acres that were planted to soybeans in twenty nineteen Ellendale also projected all U. S. wheat plantings at forty four million four hundred sixty five thousand acres slightly below the USDA portends for forty five million and the low the two thousand nineteen planted acreage of forty five point two million acres and finally Allendale estimated US winter wheat acres up to thirty million nine hundred fourteen thousand acres and other spring wheat aber acreage was seen at twelve billion four hundred forty one thousand acres durum plantings at one million one hundred ten thousand acres that would be down two hundred twenty nine thousand acres from two thousand nineteen so that's what at least one private survey has to say we can look for this spring and as I said we will give the USDA planted acreage on the last day of the month this as I've talked about Samuelson says last weekend in conversations with a lot of people one of the most unusual times for a market reporter like me in decades I can't remember when we've had these swings from one number to the next in half a minute but we see that daily now on Wall Street today and we see it daily and some of the grain markets although I do have to say that the agricultural markets have performed better than the equity markets during the past couple of weeks but I was just looking back at the week ending now at two reports on oil prices and they're kind of interesting because one day I had this headline this week US oil it reverses losses posed the largest one day gain on record that was the oil market on March nineteenth and then the next day I got this headline on my writers with the computer oil falls for fourth week U. S. crude post the steepest weekly loss since nineteen ninety one and it's been that kind of the market and that kind of a market to report whether it's oil whether it's stocks whether rich grains or whether it's the livestock futures very unusual the most unusual market reporting I've done in my years of covering the market activity and the and concern of course is what about the food supply in the grocery stores the one thing I don't understand do we not use toilet paper if we don't have corona virus on the picture because the hoarding of the ingredients like toilet paper is I've I've found that fascinating and many of you remember Porter Martin because Porter road course with very active in land sales activity here in Illinois will Porter now lives in Michigan he's pretty much retired but and he sent me a cartoon of that I like because we need things like this during these challenging times he sent me a cartoon that was titled help is on the way and it showed as St Bernard rescue dogs that you normally see with the little casket birth of alcohol of whiskey of tied around their neck except this picture and it was a real picture of dogs I don't know were green and Porter found the need to get them to pose for the picture but it was a picture of five dogs and hanging around their necks a roll of toilet paper with try Lech I like that but what about food supply of grocery stores well as we said farmers can't stop producing food particularly the meat industry and this week because of the C. E. O. of Tyson foods said the demand for U. S. meat and grocery stores will likely exceed supplies for at least a another week as the corona virus pandemic few will spend it buying among shoppers food manufacturers say overall meat supplies are ample to feed the millions of Americans that are hunkered down in their homes and that local governments have closed schools bars and restaurants in an escalation of social distancing policies aimed at maintaining it really of them containing the virus and he said once we are able to replenish supplies which is probably going to take another week or so then I think that we'll be back and better equilibrium between supply and demand noble why do C. E. O. of Tyson and he later said in the short term being a matter of weeks there are some imbalances that exist the imbalances are more demand than supply in sectors like retail stores the total amount of beef pork and poultry available in the United States is up about two to three percent from last year orders for meat from grocery stores were significantly higher than usual through the weekend after demand began to shift away from the restaurants last week and white said the damage here very quickly the order fill rate has improved it's still not where we would expect it to be but it will be there we will have a supply because as I've said many many times farmers quiet I can't quit feeding cattle and hogs and they can't quit milking columns so they'll be producing it but the other industry but we have to depend on the course the trucking industry to get those supplies from apartment to the grocery stores and supermarkets in cities across the country interesting times indeed we're at the five thirty mark here on the Saturday morning show and we thank you for joining us every week for this visit about what to me is our most basic and important industry producing food using clothing producing energy now thanks to the ethanol that we're using but again the the ethanol industry is facing some really challenging times because of the decline in the oil prices so it's not just one thing it's many many things that come together to create some challenging times right now we say welcome to Samuelson's say is Morean this week talking about the challenging times that we are experiencing interesting creature inhabits the flat plains of many important mobile dashboard the book it's most agreeable and whatnot along twenty six despite having no brain function.

"It is five thirty eight almost time for organs agribusiness brief good morning another challenging day on the market place yesterday corn futures down two point two percent to hitting their lowest level in three and a half years part of the blame falling prices for crude oil cutting into demand from the ethanol market a crumbling cash market for corn added to the pressure at the end of the day the main Corning contract down seven and a half cents a bushel but we ended seven cents higher at a bushel and maize soybeans up one and three quarters cents a bushel no down limited moves in livestock futures yesterday but close to it June lean hogs down two dollars forty five cents a hundredweight April live cattle down four dollars forty two cents and April Peter cattle lost a dollar forty two cents a hundredweight and then we got the surveyed from Allendale the yesterday the survey of blinding expectations for the year and according to that survey by Allendale incorporated farmers are expected to plant ninety four million six hundred thirty one thousand acres of corn in twenty twenty and eighty three million seven hundred forty thousand acres of soybeans projected corn plantings would be about the latest USDA forecasts for ninety four million and it would also be above the eighty nine point seven million acres planted in two thousand and nineteen the survey of farmers in thirty states conducted between March two and March thirteenth well this is a national agriculture day but I'm sure most of the activities have been postponed it and the the master farmers on a radio program tonight scheduled for Springfield Illinois by prairie farmer magazine also postponed to a later date that site design Morean Samuelson have a great day we're trying our thanks as always Dorian coming up on five forty they then I tell me how I'm supposed to feel about this this move that the bears made and I'm reading Rick Morrissey in the sun times today he says for the sake of their mental health there's fans would be wise to remember that Nick Foles who won a Super Bowl MVP award after leading the eagles to the title after the twenty seventeen season the alternative is to remember the other Nick Foles the un remarkable fulls who will be asked to push Mitch Trubisky instead of replace him that will send you into a very dark place Seoul why am I supposed to be happy about this movie I think so I mean I think it's an upgrade and I I think you know there aren't that many guys out there with Superbowl MVP on the resume that you can acquire I mean Tampa Bay apparently is about to do that guy with multiple Super Bowl MVPs but you know if you look over a I guess you would just still describe Nick Foles as a journeyman quarterback the bears will be his body's been with four teams including the eagles on two occasions but a he did take over in Carson once was hurting guided that team to the Super Bowl and if you remember that the play that really the back breaker in that game for the eagles was that Philly special where falls ended up catching the touchdown pass and from another for from a nother bear a Trey Burton so I mean I I I think people have to kind of take a deep breath on this thing and just just see how it plays out either I don't think they're necessarily looking at Nick Foles the come in here and beat out Mitch Trubisky but if you did that would probably be a good thing because that means that he would have performed at a high enough level to do that right or if he does in that means Trubisky's been pushed and is is at least meeting expectations so so if you had to make a prediction now let's hope by the time we get to the football season things are back to normal around here but I get it would you think that it's Trubisky still has the best chance to be starting game one I think he has the best chance Bob I think they'll give him every opportunity to not because it's hard to think what should be the starting quarterback himself either not yet to lose their job to make falls I I think Nick Foles is an upgrade as far as the backup quarterback position with the bears and and a guy who has shown that he can step in and lead a team which is what you would hope for from that position we chase Daniel filled in a few times and and won some games for the bears when Trubisky was hurt but I had some other games where he can look like a journeyman quarterback his cell I think that the other factor here is that Nick Foles has history with three members of the bears coaching staff including Matt Nagy so it's not like he's coming in here absolutely cold and and they have no clue as to what this guy can do now that sad that chase Daniel had some history with Nagy as well but I think in this case you've got an offense of coordinator who's familiar with them you have another also assisting coach and you have Nagy so I I think it's I don't see why I understand people would have loved to have seen the bears bring in teddy Bridgewater somebody else you know this they haven't won a Superbowl this guy has soul lets the receiver and I'm not saying that he's going to have that opportunity here but let's just say well you know what sports is always it's entertainment and has always been a diversion and in these times Hey you know we need to talk about something else once in awhile and and get distracted with with these sorts of you know unimportant things in and and talk about getting back to normal what could be more normal than arguing about who the bears should be starting it quicker better is the absolute pet is a modicum of normalcy in Chicago is gonna be complaining about the bears quarterback but I will I will say this if you look at it you know he hears you you also have to look at the quarterbacks who were available and and this guy was available the bears and I I'm kind of curious to see what he does here on I don't think he's going to be Tom Brady necessarily but with the bears defense he might not have to be should be bill later Rudy do kitchen should be Virgil Gardner Herschel Carter's family need can't next play this game for a while my time today yeah I remember one time I used to play touch football examined Sundays in Lincoln Park and I am trying to remember the circumstances where it was a Sunday and the bears weren't planned I'm trying to remember if it was still preseason time more I don't I don't I don't remember but Mike Tomczak happened to come upon our game and he's he you know so as some of us knew him a little bit really nice guys so you know we say Hey Mike you want to you want to you know take a turn at quarterback and he said yeah sure so you know Mike drops back and I think he threw the ball from Fullerton Avenue down to North Avenue I am keen when you see that with these guys you know not on television up close even not at every game you know you seem in a park throwing a ball it's crazy I like to do that I do I think though that the coach might not have liked the idea might sound out in Lincoln Park throwing a football around with you guys on a bye week or whatever it was so if we did we'd never told out of its.
