Compared to last week, cash bids for wheat, corn and soybeans were mostly lower while sorghum bids were mixed. Grain futures closed lower yesterday. Markets may have been pressured by a lack of fresh news and some sell-off in the grain market. Export sales and shipment numbers remain uncertain as the government shutdown rolls into its 20th day. Wheat was 4 3/4 cents lower to 28 3/4 cents higher. Corn was 50 1/2 cents lower to 2 1/4 cents higher. Sorghum was 7 cents lower to 2 cents higher. Soybeans were steady to 19 cents lower.
