Bullish report means higher prices


A bullish USDA report on Friday led to higher prices.


The corn harvested area was down a million acres with yields unchanged and ending stocks for 2020-21 went from 2.503 to 2.167 billion. The soybean harvested acres dropped 700,000 with yields unchanged and ending stocks went from 460 to 290 million bushels.


Once the report was issued late Friday morning, corn traded 5-6 cents higher, soybeans were 23-24 higher and wheat was around 3 cents higher.
