    Ethanol Exports

    Export Markets for US Ethanol
    Seth Meyer and Nick Paulson
    March 7, 2014
    While the lowering of biofuel mandates from legislated levels in the EPA's proposed rule for the RFS in 2014 was seen as a blow to domestic ethanol and corn producers, strong ethanol exports have proven to be a bright spot for the industry. Strong margins have kept significant capacity in ethanol production, contributing to stable corn grind demand as covered by Darrel Good in a post last week. Current expectations for the 2013/14 crop year are for around 5 billion bushels of corn-for-ethanol demand. Depending on domestic ethanol use and the final RFS rule ethanol exports, continued strength in foreign demand could lead to ethanol exports in the range of 600 million to 1 billion gallons.

    DDG's, Nebraska being the number 3 corn producer and a leader in the kick off and promotion of the ethanol industry has lead Nebraska to the number one position in the cattle on feed... Yes that's right Nebraska is number one in cattle feeding partly because cattle feeders love ddg's.

    I just read that 40% of Brazil's ethanol production facilities have gone belly up and the export commitments of deliveries have gone out the window causing America to fill the gap.
    In doing so, ethanol here in the US has gone into backwardation as the supply lines are severely contracting as demand is outstripping supply and the cupboards of restocking are being drawn down in the same process. This is putting a huge premium on ethanol as driving season is just around the corner.Ethanol should be daily bid close to RBOB to try to satisfy current domestic demand.
    This should be extremely bullish of corn this year in my mind.

    I did read ethanol stocks were low in brazil,never heard anything about plants going under.One load on brazillian ethanol was imported into the US this week.Also heard suger cane mills were going to produce more ethanol less sugar as E was more profitable.sugar cane areas were in the areas most affected by drought this year.cane and coffee are grown in the same area.look what coffee prices have done this year.Also remember most cars in Brazil run on 22% ethanol,so they consume a lot themselves.

    this alcohol syndrome is a reoccurring issue that comes up time and again in the US as the government steps in to prop up the sugar to profits syndrome to pay off the good ol boys, till it all goes down the tubes time and again.
    alcohol plants have a short life, and its now entering the dinnosour phase again, that spells doom.. while the beef and pig industry are in a slow slide of doom..

    it goes back to the great flue epidemic of the early 1900's when people were cut off of food to eat in the bid to sustain the great war, suddenly the people (children) where all dying for improper eating habits, sick, flue they called it, and it was sell a killer flue for the people (children) were malnourished and dying of sickness. and today, the same is and will happen again as food is not available, ressources in this timely drought will bring a great issue again. while food production is diverted to alcohol profits for a few..

    why are the pigs all dying, maybe its poor diet as always, not proper nutrition to a healthy system, and now the humans are to exist on pigs themselves.. don't eat the pork, its not going to keep you healthy, nor is most of the other, food..
