Happy new year!

Grain futures start 2016 marketing year with gains. (Audio)

August ended on a sour note Wednesday with corn, soybean s and wheat all making new lows for the month. Futures are rebounding this morning, as corn and soybeans turn a page and start their 2016 crop marketing years. Final ending stocks for 2015 won’t be known until the end of the month, but reports out today could provide important clues about usage during the summer.

Knorr discusses overnight market moves with Bryant Gill, sitting in for Pam Jahnke, Wisconsin Farm Report, and you can listen using the audio tool on this page (just scroll down).
