Thanks to Mexico and Canada, soybean oil climbed significantly higher at 10,800 tons. Cotton, beef and pork also saw improvements. Sorghum, however, hit a marketing year low after a Chinese shipment cancellation. Rice sales fell 42% at 14,900 tons, a noticeable 73% lower than last week.
The next USDA report will be released on April 11.
