Overnight Highlights

  • Overnight markets have corn -1 ½, soybeans -15, wheat mixed, crude oil even, dollar +.32, gold -8.0 and the Dow -55.
  • Lower grains overnight led by weakness in soybeans. Profit taking on the recent rally, softer crush margins in China and the weight of the anticipated big harvest looming.
  • The annual Pro Farmer crop tour starts Monday. Monday’s meetings will be in Fishers IN and Grand Island NE.
  • China continues to struggle to unload reserves on auction as global feed prices are still viable for end users there.
  • China bought a couple more cargoes of US soybeans yesterday.
  • Rains are stalling Delta corn harvest. Additional accumulation expected over the next 10 days.
  • USDA Cattle on Feed report out this afternoon. Estimates of On Feed 101.4%, Placements 100.5%, Marketings 99.7%.

Commodity Weather Group Forecast


·         Short-term rains (slightly reduced) favor Great Lakes/far SW Midwest; heaviest in 6-10 day Plains/SW Midwest

·         MO/KS/OK/N. TX at greatest risk for pockets of too much rain; moisture still otherwise aids filling soy in Midwest

·         Far N. Delta wetter mid/late next week, but most of corn/soy/cotton see needed drying after tomorrow

·         Limited interruptions to late N. Plains spring wheat harvest; pushes toward completion during rest of month

·         Wetter outlook both early and late next week slows drying in wet sections of W. Canada wheat/canola

·         Pre-planting moisture continues to build for much of Plains winter wheat
