St. Joseph, MO    Fri Nov 16, 2012    USDA-MO Dept of Ag Market News

   Compared to last week, grain and soybean bids closed moderate to sharply 
lower.  The grains opened Monday in a negative tone following a bearish USDA 
report last Friday.  Additional pressure for corn and soybeans came from 
favorable weather in South America, along with economy worries and uncertainties 
compelling the markets.  The stock market was lower with crude oil having sharp 
losses and precious metals also lower.  However, some positive news from 
overnight export announcement and bullish NOPA crush numbers limit the losses 
for soybeans.  NOPA crush came in well above estimates at 153.54 million bushels 
as compared to 119.73 in September.  Wheat also saw some support from lower 
winter wheat crop ratings which came in at 36 percent good to excellent, down 3 
percent from last week.  Wheat was 45-50 cents lower.  Corn was mostly 16-22
