CPI Grain

CPI operates 23 grain facilities in Nebraska with a total storage capacity of 84 million bushels. We constantly invest in upgrades to ensure we have modern, efficient and safe facilities. This enables us to add value and share success by providing the industry-leading service and support that our customers have come to depend on, all while dumping their grain as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We have shuttle loaders on the BNSF at Fairmont, Funk, Hastings and Red Cloud, and on the UP at Hastings and Hayland. These strategically placed train-loading facilities enable us to ship grain from almost all of our locations to reach the best train markets available, whether in the export or domestic markets. In addition, our facilities are located close to a multitude of local markets to help facilitate the movement of grain and help satisfy the local demand base.

Another important part of our grain division is the CPI Direct program, where grain can be picked up from your bin site or delivered to various markets available within our trade territory. We can provide transportation to move your grain or you can deliver this grain yourself. This service allows you to receive the best price that we can get for your grain.

DTN Midday Grain Comments     04/18 11:33

   Wheat, Corn Lower at Midday

   Wheat is the downside leader at midday.

By David Fiala
DTN Contributing Analyst

 General Comments

   The U.S. stock market indices are mixed with the Dow 50 points higher. The 
interest rate products are weaker. The dollar index is 38 points higher. 
Energies are narrowly mixed. Livestock trade is mixed. Precious metals are 
mixed with gold flat. 


   Corn trade is flat to 2 cents lower at midday with light selling during the 
day session as we head to the long weekend The Western Corn Belt should be more 
open in the near term with the central part looking more open, and most rains 
concentrated to the east with forecasts showing more consistency, and the 
extended forecasts trending warmer. Ethanol blender margins have remained 
strong with ethanol futures edging slightly lower this morning. South American 
harvest should continue to move along at a good clip. The weekly export sales 
were improved at 947,600 metric tons old crop, and 18,400 of new. On the May 
nearby chart, support is the recent low at $3.55 then $3.52, with the 10-day at 
$3.61 nearby resistance, and then the 20-day at $3.66. 


   Soybean trade is narrowly mixed with quiet midday trade going into the 
three-day market weekend. Meal is flat to $1.00 lower, and oil is 10 to 20 
point higher. Crush margins have faded this week with basis trying to firm in 
spots of the central U.S. South American currencies remain cheap as soybean 
harvest winds down, which should limit harvest pressure. On the trade front, 
further negotiations were announced with a projected end date in late May with 
trade remaining in show me mode. The weekly export sales were soft at 382,100 
metric tons of old crop, 21,100 of new, meal 295,300 metric tons, and 24,200 of 
oil. On the May chart support is the recent low at $8.76 1/2, and then the 
six-month low at $8.71, with resistance clustered in the $8.93 to $8.95 range.


   Wheat trade is 1 to 8 cents lower with early short covering giving way to 
renewed fund selling with the spreads favoring the higher protein wheats. 
Europe and the Black Sea area will be watched closely for further rains, with a 
mixed start to the year with Romanian conditions off 20% from last year. The 
U.S. high Plains look drier in the near term, but moisture is very good for the 
moment with warmer temps to boost growth, with progress in the north likely to 
remain behind pace but should be more open into next week. The dollar is 
sharply higher this morning. The weekly export sales were mixed at 317,700 
metric tons of old crop, and 227,800 of new. On the May KC chart support the 
fresh lows at $4.14, with the lower Bollinger band at $4.15, and resistance the 
10-day at $4.26.
