USDA
reported sales of 747,000 tons of corn to China and 140,000 tons to unknow, both for new-crop.  There were no major surprises in the USDA export sales report.  US agricultures futures are higher on follow through buying related to US, EU, and Black Sea crop

least one cargo trading out of the Gulf.  Argentina soybean inspectors planned a 36-hour strike starting Friday over wages.  For the first time this season, China corn reserve sales failed to reach 100 percent.  China sold 89 percent of the total offered at
auction, or 3.547 million tons out of 3.989 million offered.

No
major surprises in USDA’s export sales report.  Meal and SBO sales remain on the light side but shipments were ok.  All-wheat exceeded expectations and corn and soybean new-crop sales were within expectations.  Pork sales were robust again at 39,400 tons with
China and Mexico taking about two-thirds of the amount.
