Soybean Comment
Soybeans posted gains of about a penny today. A good export report and positive outside markets- lower dollar, stronger crude oil and equities- were supportive. USDA announced a 175,000 metric ton sale of beans to China today, but it is for delivery during the next marketing year. Both old and new crop have upside potential with technical objectives around $12.92.

  Today's Arkansas LDP rate for corn is:

Grain Comment
Wheat futures closed higher but traded within yesterday’s trading range. Dry conditions across the northern plains is providing underlying support. The winter wheat crop there is said to have deteriorated significantly over the past month and soil moisture is inadequate for the upcoming spring wheat crop as well. Both old crop March and new crop July charted a bearish reversal yesterday, indicating another leg down is possible. July has support at the recent low of $6.13. Corn ended mixed today. The market appears to be super sensitive as the USDA outlook conference approaches. Inadequate soil moisture in the northern plains threatens the potential for the corn crop, however, there is still plenty of time for that situation to turn around. Upside potential appears limited at this point.

Cotton Comment
Cotton posted across the board losses today. Building world stocks and the competitive price of man-made fibers continue to weigh on the market. Smaller plantings don’t offer much support unless drought conditions in Texas and Georgia persist. Normal conditions would likely add to stocks if 13.6 million acres are planted, and that is what the National Cotton Council’s planting survey indicated. Normal yields would project a crop of 18.3 million bales or more and use is likely to reach that level. December fell below support at 92 cents, leaving the next level of support at 90 cents.

Rice Comment
Rice moved higher today. Inability to improve export movement continues to be negative, limiting upside potential and pushing the market toward recent support at $13.50. A close below this level brings support at $13.10 or perhaps $12.66 into play.

Cattle futures were mixed with live futures posting gains. Further gains in wholesale product prices and a weaker dollar were supportive today. Longer-term, tight supplies will provide support.

Hogs Comment
Hog futures turned higher. Weakness in wholesale pork prices continue to limit the upside. However, strong exports are providing support and the market is trending higher, with support near $98 for June.
