Grains Report - Tuesday, June 1

General Comments: Winter Wheat markets were lower on showers and rains seen in Winter Wheat production areas, but Minneapolis Spring Wheat was higher as a freeze hit production areas late last week and on forecasts from NWS calling for a warmer and drier than normal summer growing season. Showers and rains were seen in parts of Western Texas and in Oklahoma and also in the northern Great Plains. Kansas and the Canadian Prairies got some beneficial rain, but it also froze in parts of the Dakotas and into Canada late last week. Scattered showers are in the forecast in western Texas and rains are possible into Kansas. These rains should be very beneficial for planting and initial growth, and more is in the forecast. Wheat remains a weather market, but the demand side has been weak. Demand remains disappointing but the production might not be there for better demand in the coming year. Corn prices are high so demand for feed wheat could increase.
Overnight News: The southern Great Plains should get mostly dry conditions. Temperatures should be near to above normal. Northern areas should see mostly dry conditions. Temperatures will be above normal. The Canadian Prairies should see mostly dry conditions. Temperatures should average above normal.
