According to the USDA's latest U.S. Export Sales report, corn exports of 776,300 MT were up 13 percent from last week, but down 8 percent from the 4-week average.

Corn futures closed mixed on Thursday bull-spreading supported old-crop futures slightly and weighed on new-crop as USDA’s Outlook Conference upheld the baseline forecast for 94 million acres of corn in 2012, up from 91.9 million from last year. On Friday futures opened 3 to 4 cents lower.
