National Grain Market Summary:

Compared to Friday, cash bids for corn and soybeans were lower, while wheat was mixed and sorghum was not quoted.   High crop rating expectations coupled with favorable U.S. crop development weighed heavily on today's trading session. The corn crop condition today reported at 78 percent good to excellent; 1 percent below a week ago and 10 percent above a year ago.  For the week ending May 31, export loadings of corn and soybeans were reported within industry trade expectations, while wheat shipments fell short.
