WEEKLY NATIONAL GRAIN MARKET REVIEW
Compared to last week, grain and soybean bids traded lower. Soybeans saw
sharp losses on selling pressure as tight old crop supplies seem to be easing.
Corn had slight to modest losses as the crop is off to a good start with
favorable weather. News of China no longer allowing U.S. distiller dried grain
imports weighed in the corn market. More Heavy rain in parts of the Midwest was
reported this week, along with cooler temperatures. Early corn progress shows
92 percent emerged and 75 percent rated good to excellent. Wheat saw declines
as the market seems to be more focused on global conditions which are in good
shape. USDA kept estimates for domestic corn the same at 13.935 billion bushel
with ending stocks at 1.726 billion bushels. Soybean production had ending
stocks at 125 million bushels down from 130 million bushels. USDA increased
