Corn futures are called 4 to 5 cents higher. Overnight trade at 6:30 a.m. CST is 4 to 4 1/2 cents higher. Outside markets are lending support to corn, with the dollar slipping lower and the stock market higher. Friday's Supply/Demand report was neutral to bearish, which will keep a lid on prices. Also weighing are expectations for bearish weekly export inspections.

Soybean futures are called 13 to 15 cents higher. Overnight trade at 6:30 a.m. CST is 13 1/2 to 14 1/2 cents higher. Strong export demand has been carrying soybean futures higher, and this week's export inspections are expected to be bullish. Friday's Supply/Demand report showed a cut in ending stocks to 165 million bushels after exports were raised 20 million bales.

Wheat futures are called 6 to 9 cents higher. Overnight trade at 6:30 am CST was 5 to 6 cents higher at the CBOT, 8 1/2 to 9 cents higher at the KCBT and 8 to 8 3/4 cents higher at the MGE. Prices are being boosted by continued concerns over dry conditions in the U.S. western Plains. Futures will remain weighed down by USDA's higher ending stocks estimate.

Cattle futures are called steady to higher on the open. Short-covering is expected to support futures after falling to three-week lows last week. But gains are expected to be limited by weakness in boxed beef prices on Friday and the losses in the cash market last week.

Lean hog futures are called steady to higher. Cash prices are expected to be near steady to start the week. Packer margins have been holding up fairly well and cash hog supplies are tightening seasonally. Short-covering from the profit-taking losses on Friday is also expected to support the futures market.

Cotton futures are trading solidly higher this morning. USDA lowered U.S. ending stocks another 300,000 bales to 1.9 million in Friday's report due to lower production and higher domestic use. At 6:30 a.m. CST March is up 313 points at 140.10 cents.
