Weekly Grain Market Outlook - Dan O'Brien

K-State grain market economist Dan O'Brien remarks on yet another bullish week in the grain markets, spurred on in part by the USDA's crop production and grain supply-and-demand reports earlier in the week. He comments on the latest fundamentals that are now fueling the corn, grain sorghum, soybean and wheat markets, and he advises producers to look to the quarterly grain stocks reports as the market-movers going forward.
