Weekly Grain Review:

Compared to last week, cash bids for wheat, corn, and soybeans were mostly lower while sorghum bids were mixed.  Grain futures closed lower yesterday.  Markets may have been pressured by a lack of fresh news and some sell-off in the grain market. Export sales and shipment numbers remain uncertain as the government shutdown rolls into its 20th day.  Wheat was 4 3/4 cents lower to 28 3/4 cents higher.  Corn was 50 1/2 cents lower to 2 1/4 cents higher.  Sorghum was 7 cents lower to 2 cents higher. Soybeans were steady to 19 cents lower.
