WEEKLY NATIONAL GRAIN MARKET REVIEW
Compared to last week, grain bids were slightly lower with soybeans trading
with double digit gains. Soybeans saw gains all week on renewed buying interest
and good export demand. Corn saw slight losses on slow export demand with
outside markets not very supportive. Wheat saw declines as demand was slow but
long term support may come from dry conditions in the southern plains. However,
spillover support from soybeans helped to limit the losses in the corn and wheat
trading floor. Corn Weekly exports were well below expectations coming in at
47,400 tonnes. Export sales for soybeans were very good coming in at a total of
1,143,700 tonnes. Wheat export sales came in at 353,100 tonnes. Wheat was
mostly 7-29 cents lower. Yellow Corn was mostly 2-10 cents lower. Sorghum was
7 cents lower to 1 cent higher. Soybeans were 45-48 cents higher.
