Most CBOT futures closed sharply lower following marketing-year-low weekly export sales of corn and soybeans, and a slightly bearish USDA Acreage report for corn. USDA estimated 89.921 million acres of corn planted vs traders’ expectations of 89.861 million. Farmers’ intentions reported in March were 89.490 million acres. Soybean planted acres of 88.325 million was sharply lower than the 90.446 million expected by the trade. In contrast to the March Intentions Report, corn acreage is again larger than soybean planted acreage. The other report today, Grain Stocks, came in very close to trade expectations for corn, soybeans and wheat. Wheat futures were pressured by news that Ukraine finally exported grain through the Black Sea.

Cattle futures closed higher led by the sharply higher feeder cattle market. Feeder futures were supported by the big drop in corn futures. Live cattle also gained support from a positive weekly beef export sales report this morning. Sales were up 52% from a week ago. Negotiated trade this week has been mostly steady to down a dollar/cwt. Choice beef slipped .88 to 264.00 and Select fell .24 to 240.57. Beef movement was a low 102 loads.

Lean hog futures closed lower with October dropping the most at $2.05/cwt. LH opened higher following yesterday’s neutral to friendly Hogs and Pigs Report, but soon headed lower given weaker cash fundamentals and pork cutouts. On a positive note - pork net sales of 32,300 mt for 2022 were up 27% from a week ago. FOB Plant Pork ended down 1.31 at 107.25 on very low movement of 222 loads of pork. The picnic value fell 6 to 68; and rib value rose 8 to 182.
