China’s change of heart on 800,000 metric tons of soybeans and an increase in yield numbers for Argentine crops pushed the March contract down 7 cents. March meal added 40 cents per ton. March cotton plummeted $2.33 per hundredweight. Over in the dairy parlor, March Class III milk futures lost 6 cents. The livestock market was mixed.
