Yields dropped on the second day of the Wheat Quality Council's Hard Winter Wheat tour on Wednesday, May 18, as scouts recorded an average weighted estimated yield of 37 bushels per acre.
July corn was down 7 cents, July soybeans were up 3/4 cent and July KC wheat was down 30 cents.
Cattle and hog futures diverged Wednesday with hogs not succumbing to the pressure on cattle and cattle not finding support from higher hogs. The concern for cattle was that they were unable to rally even though corn futures suffered substantial losses. Hogs found more cash and cutout support.
