After a cool spring and wet June, producers in the Soybean Belt should be scouting for the symptoms of sudden death syndrome (SDS) in their bean fields in the next couple weeks.
Corn is lower at 6 a.m. (CT); soybeans are lower; wheat is higher.
Live and feeder contracts seem set to open lower this morning, checked by follow-through selling, beef demand worries, and pre-cash caution. Look for lean hog contracts to begin with moderate strength thanks to late-week short covering and the correction of oversold charts.
