This is down 0.7% from last year which holds the November shipment record of 237.63 million pounds. Export shipments were 175.19 million pounds and set a new export record for the month of November. Domestic shipments came in at 60.70 million pounds which is down 5.5% from this time last year. Overall shipments for the month did not move the needle either direction since they were so close to last year.

The 2019 year to date crop receipts are now 2,082,856,881 pounds which is up 4.84% from this time last year. Buyers now feel they have confirmation the 2.2 billion pound objective forecast was incorrect and the actual crop size will land somewhere around 2.40 to 2.45 billion pounds.
