Soybean futures are higher near midday on Thursday after USDA reported three export sales, two of which were to China. Also being watched are rain storms moving through Iowa and Minnesota. The storms produced heavy rainfall overnight in
those areas and more rain is forecast today and tomorrow.
Corn futures are a few cents lower near midday and winter wheat markets are about unchanged.
