The cash corn price started the week higher with the corn futures higher after a day of mixed trading as demand on the interior remains firm. The soybean cash price was lower again today as futures fell to a 5 week low early on Monday as outside markets, including a higher U.S. dollar, added pressure to the soybeans as well as the wheat markets.
