Illinois Grain Prices in Country Elevators

This is Thursday's report of the grain prices and trends prepared by the 
USDA and the Illinois Department of Agriculture.
Illinois country grain prices were mixed on Thursday afternoon, with 
corn slightly higher and soybeans and wheat lower. Technical selling at
the Board of Trade and a change in the South American weather forecast 
pushed soybean futures lower. In the cash markets, trading was slow. With 
export demand weaker, the cash soybean basis at many river terminals has 
been sharply lower. Over the last two days the cash soybean basis has
dropped  to  cents at many Illinois River terminals.

In Northern and Western Illinois country grain dealers quoted shelled corn 
bids were mostly steady at 7.28-7.47. Soybean bids were 18 to 24 cents
lower at 14.50-14.61.
In Central Illinois country grain dealers quoted shelled corn bids were 
steady to 4 cents higher at 7.40-7.56. Soybean bids were 8 to 9 cents
lower at 14.74-14.90.

In the Southern part of the state, shelled corn bids were 1 to 3 cents
higher at 7.29-7.66. Soybean bids were 16 to 18 cents lower at 
14.79-14.99. Wheat bids were 7 to 8 cents lower at 7.72-7.90.
