Corn futures are trading higher at midsession. Spillover support from wheat has helped pull corn higher despite mixed trade overnight. Gains are expected to remain limited ahead of harvest and what are expected to be relatively good yields. September is 1 1/4 cents higher at $2.24 and December is 1 1/2 cents higher at $2.40 1/4.



Soybean futures are slightly higher at midday. Technically oversold conditions and spillover support from wheat have encouraged some light short-covering. However, favorable weather this month and rising production estimates continue to limit rally attempts. September is 1 1/4 cents higher at $5.38 1/4 and November is 3/4 of a cent higher at $5.51 3/4.



Wheat futures are trading higher at midsession. The market is being supported by speculative buying amid news that India is seeking 1.67 million tonnes of wheat in addition to the recent 3.8 million tonnes of wheat purchases. While the U.S. is not expected to get much of the new business, global wheat stocks will be tightened further. CBOT Sep is 5 1/4 cents higher at $3.85 3/4, KCBT Sep is 4 3/4 cents higher at $4.65, and MGE Sep is 1 cent higher at $4.48.



Cattle futures are trading higher at midday, posting contract highs in several contracts again today. Fund buying is supporting prices with gains being extended by buy-stops. However, uncertainty about this week's cash market and futures premium to cash are expected to limit further gains. October is 33 cents higher at $92.85 and December is 18 cents higher at $92.60.



Lean hog futures are strongly higher at midsession. The market is being supported by short-covering amid ideas of better cash prices next week. Fund buying has helped extend gains. Cash hog prices are lower again today as packers have needs covered for the week, but futures remain at a discount to cash. October is $1.13 higher at $66.50 and December is 80 cents higher at $63.50.
