Corn finished the day up 16¢ and soybeans are up 27¢. 

CBOT wheat is up 43¢. KC wheat is up 39¢. Minneapolis wheat is up 29¢.

Livestock all finished the day up. 

Naomi Blohm with Total Farm Marketing says wheat jumped higher today because of news of the ongoing tension around Zaporizhzhia nuclear energy plant in Ukraine. 

Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency is calling for the establishment of a Nuclear Safety and Security Protection Zone around the plant. Addressing the UN Security Council he says "we are playing with fire and something very catastrophic could take place." 

Blohm also says the U.S. dollar being lower is lifting corn, soybean, and wheat prices. Currently the dollar is down 71¢.

CBOT wheat is up 36¢. KC wheat is up 31¢. Minneapolis wheat is up 30¢. 

Corn is currently up 11¢ and soybeans are up 18¢. 

Live cattle are up $1.18. Feeder cattle are up $1.35. Lean hogs are up 70¢.

The U.S. dollar is down 79¢ this morning. Crude oil is up $2.29.
