Booming exports and dwindling stocks. Rising inflation and increased ethanol use. In the latest episode of The Dairy Download, we talk with two guests who are close to increasingly expensive and volatile grain markets.

First up is Steve Freed, Vice President of Grain Research for ADM Investor Services. He talks about global demand for corn, soybeans and other grains, and China’s hunger for US product. He also discusses how factors like inflation and weather are helping push prices to multi-year highs.

Joining us next is Robert White, Vice President of Industry Relations with the Renewable Fuels Association. Where are we in ethanol’s lifecycle? White gives us his perspective. And he weighs in on the relationship between renewable fuel and corn prices.
