CBOT futures closed steady to higher following the midday USDA WASDE report which was generally friendly for corn and negative for soybeans. US and World ending corn stocks were forecast below trade expectations, while soybean stocks came in much higher than expected as USDA incorporated the current Chinese import tariffs into its projections.  The 2018/19 U.S. Soybean Ending Stocks forecast of 580 million bushels is a new record, surpassing the old record of 574 million bushels from 12 years ago. Traders should focus on weather for the short run.

Kentucky expects to harvest 22.8 million bushels of winter wheat during 2018, down 5 percent from 2017. Growers expect a yield of 65 bushels per acre, down 12 bushels from 2017 and down 15 bushels from the June report.

Cattle and hog futures rebounded nicely today following yesterday’s rout.
