DAILY NATIONAL GRAIN
Cash wheat bids finished mixed, with
pressure due to active hard red winter
wheat planting in the Southwestern U.S.
and lack of fresh export sales. Strength in
wheat came from fund buying on the
Boards. Com bids were slightly higher in
reaction to continued good export orders.
Gains however, were limited due to rapid
harvest progress. Soybean bids were
steady to weak on increased harvest prog
ress and some profit taking on the board.
Light export sales overnight, underpinned
bids. Wheat mixed. Com steady to 2 cents
higher. Sorghum steady to 5 cents higher.
