What DTN Is Watching

The only official report on Friday's docket is USDA's monthly cattle on-feed at 2 p.m. CDT. Traders will continue to pay close attention to the latest weather forecasts and any new export sales announcements that come up.


Rain will cover the southeastern Plains through eastern Midwest Friday, bringing harvest to a halt for the weekend. We'll also see more disruptive snow in the northern Midwest. Dry conditions will be in place elsewhere. Conditions will be very cold for the season north and west and very warm for the season south and east. Arctic cold is set to spread through the central U.S. during the next five days.
