Soybeans are higher to add to yesterday’s gains following USDA’s surprising reduction in the 2016 crop size. The January soy contracts expire at noon today, which will put the March contracts into the lead.

Hard red winter wheat futures are higher again after USDA on Thursday reported a larger-than-expected drop in winter wheat acreage.

Corn futures are a little lower.
