Grain and oilseed markets continued their rally into the weekend with strength all across the sector. Wheat led to the upside with gains of around 5% in Chicago, Kansas City and Minneapolis wheat. Corn and soybeans also followed with more weather risk premium seemingly being put back into the markets ahead of hotter and drier forecast next week in the Corn Belt. Hogs were mostly higher in the deferred months while front months were a bit lower. Cattle had a mixed to lower day on Friday after dismal weekly export sales.
