Compared to last week, cash bids for wheat and corn were mixed, soybeans and sorghum were lower.  This week, trading may have been focused on getting final positions set ahead of the next round of WASDE reports set to be released this afternon Friday.  The soy complex fell under bearish pressure this week from slow export pace, a weaker soybean meal market, as well as beneficial weather in South America.  USDA said last week’s export sales and shipments of corn totaled 17.2 million bushels and 35.0 mb, export sales and shipments of soybeans totaled 22.3 mb and 56.8 mb, and export sales and shipments of wheat totaled 2.6 mb and 10.6 mb.  All export figures could be viewed as bearish, and total shipments remain lower than a year ago.  Wheat was mixed from 8 3/4 cents lower to 50 1/2 cents higher.  Corn was mixed from 6 cents lower to 2 cents higher.  Sorghum was 4 cents lower.  Soybeans were 15 3/4 to 24 3/4 cents lower.
