Private exporters reported sales of 100,000 metric tons of soybean meal for delivery to Poland during the 2022/2023 marketing year.


USD was 26 points lower, WTI crude oil $1.14 higher and US equity mixed, as of 1:35 pm CT. Grains were higher led by wheat after USDA reported a very large abandonment for the US crop on Friday. Black Sea shipping concerns added to the positive undertone.
Spread traders took some profits in corn bull spreads. The 2023 Hard Winter Wheat Quality Tour starts today (May 15-18). The tour will cover Kansas and parts of Oklahoma. Soybeans ended higher from ongoing Argentina crop concerns and Poland buying soybean
meal. Soybean meal ended mixed from bear spreading (profit taking). Soybean oil traded two-sided. NOPA reported a less than expected crush and larger than anticipated soybean oil stocks.


weather was good over the weekend, but some drought areas of the Great Plains missed out of on rain (KS). Rain fell the most in southwestern Minnesota, northern Iowa, northern Nebraska, central Oklahoma and central and southern Texas. The European model and
lessor extend GFS model, removed rain from the West Texas for this week. On Friday there might be some light frosts across the Dakota’s.  All US. crop areas will get rain at one time or another in the next ten days.
western Saskatchewan and east-central Alberta will remain mostly dry over the next 7-10 days. Brazil’s center west and center south crop areas will remain mostly dry. Australia will see net drying
this week.
