Compared to last week, cash bids for wheat and soybeans were higher, corn traded mixed, and sorghum traded lower.  The DOW hit 25,000 yesterday, possibly pulling some interest away from commodity markets.  Ethanol manufacturing for week ending December 29th saw a 58,000 barrel per day reduction from the week prior, totaling an average 1.03 million barrels per day.  Export sales for this year remain somewhat slow. USDA’s export sales and shipment totals are set to be released mid morning Friday and will give any updated look at the current export pace.  Soybeans rallied in overnight trading, leading to some spillover buying in the corn market as well.  Wheat was steady to 13 cents higher.  Corn was mixed from 1 cent lower to 1 cent higher. Sorghum was 2 cents lower.  Soybeans were 17 to 24 cents higher.
