CHICAGO WHEAT FUTURES
The Chicago September wheat
future surged to its highest
level since July 2017. Weatherreduced harvest forecasts for
Russia, Ukraine, the European
Union and Australia ignited the
current runup from recent lows
posted just three weeks earlier.
Smaller exportable supplies in
those countries may increase
demand for U.S. wheat.
The market eagerly awaited
updated U.S.D.A. supplyand-demand forecasts to
be issued Aug. 10.
Trusted since 1886. Today, Mennel is made up of
6 state-of-the-art ﬂour mills; 13 country grain elevators;
3 trucking companies; 2 bakery mix facilities; a popcorn
plant; and several other service-centered businesses.
