    Market Analysis: Tomm Pfitzenmaier

    The WASDE provided an end of the week bombshell that obscured earlier reports of tighter European and South American production. For the week, September wheat lost a dime, while the nearby corn contract fell 12 cents. The August WASDE cut the legs from under the soy complex in the final session as the September contract plummeted 41 cents. September meal dropped $8.90 per ton. December cotton shrank $2.89 per hundred weight. Over in the dairy parlor, September Class III milk futures bounced 42 cents higher. The livestock sector was mixed as the October cattle contract lost $2.75.

    Market Analysis: Elaine Kub

    European drought, strength in the wheat market, and rumors of back room dialog helped move the grain markets higher. For the week, September wheat rose 26 cents, while the nearby corn contract finished 8 cents higher. The soy complex started the week higher as new buyers took over Chinese market share. But by the final session, the September contract fought off rumors of an escalation in the Chinese-U.S. tariff battle to hang on for a 16 cent gain. September meal failed to push-off the news and lost $1.20 per ton. December cotton shrank 22 cents per hundred weight.

    Market Analysis: Mark Gold

    Subpar findings on spring wheat tours plus drought in Russia and France fueled the 11-day wheat extravaganza which allowed the grass to pull grains positive. For the week, September wheat rose 15 cents, while the nearby corn contract closed 7 cents higher. The EU purchase agreement, plus prices at 10-year lows, brought the bargain hunters to the table to lead the soy complex to a 21 cent gain in the August soybean contract. December meal shot up $6.50. December cotton improved $1.26 per hundred weight. Over in the dairy parlor, August Class III milk futures expanded 36 cents.
