St. Joseph, MO    Fri Jul 13, 2018   USDA-MO Dept of Ag Market News


   Compared to last week, cash bids for wheat were mixed, corn and sorghum were
mixed, while soybeans were lower.  On Tuesday the US proposed another $200 billion
worth of tarrifs against China, setting a bearish tone early in the week. On
Thursday, USDA released the most recent WASDE reports lending some support back to
grain markets.  These new reports put US ending stocks for old crop corn at 1.552
billion bushels and new crop at 2.027 billion bushels, old crop soybeans estimated at
465 million bushels with new crop totaling 580 million bushels. New US ending stocks
could be viewed as bullish for corn and neutral for soybeans. Updated average yield
estimates show soybeans increased to 48.5 bushels per acre, and corn yield was
unchanged at 174 bushels per acre.  Wheat was mixed from 24 cents lower to 18 cents
higher.  Corn was mixed from 6 1/2 cents lower to 15 1/2 cents higher.  Sorghum was
