Compared to last week, cash bids for wheat, corn, and sorghum were higher, soybeans traded mixed.  Much of the trading in the last couple days may have traders focusing on getting final positions set before moving into the new year.  The soy complex remained bearish this week, fueled by slow export pace and favorable weather conditions in South America. Ethanol production for last week totaled 1.09 million barrels per day, 13,000 more than the previous week.  Friday’s holiday delayed export sales and shipments report will reveal if export figures have seen any improvement from last week.  Wheat was steady to 14 3/4 cents higher.  Corn was 3/4 to 3 cents higher.  Sorghum was 2 to 46 cents higher.  Soybeans were steady to 5 cents lower.
