The cancellations in 2014/2015 soymeal resulted a net reduction of 22,300 metric tons and offset sales to Ecuador, Thailand and others. There was a net increase of 174,300 metric tons in 2015/2016 sales to Thailand and Mexico.
Corn sales of 37.2 million bushels topped trade forecasts and were led by unknown destinations and Japan.
