Grain prices edging up
Despite a slowing ag economy, grain prices are higher than a year ago.
Tuesday prices at Cooperative Grain and Supply in Marion were $4.58 for wheat; $8.08 for soybeans; $3.12 for milo; and $3.40 for corn.
Wheat delivered last spring at Hillsboro is 39 cents higher than a year ago, at $4.21; milo is 15 cents higher, at $3.15; soybeans are 94 cents higher, at $8.11; and corn is 15 cents higher, at $3.40.
Much of the price increase is because of increased exports.
