 Summary:  Grain Reports

USDA has tightened its domestic ending stocks outlook for corn.

For the current marketing year, corn ending stocks are now seen at 1.777 billion bushels, down 50 million from February, following increased feed and export use projections. Before the report, most analysts were expecting a month to month increase.

Wheat came out at 691 million bushels, 1 million below last month, due to a larger seed use estimate. Ahead of the numbers, analysts were anticipating a month to month rise in U.S. ending stocks.

Soybean ending stocks were left unchanged at 385 million bushels, when most analysts were expecting at least some reduction.
