After corn prices spiked to new highs following today's USDA report, prices ended lower as cuts to demand estimates helped offset the expected declines in corn yields. "The USDA is behind the market and [traders] expect another reduction in yield," a pro says. Food shares are mixed: ADM -2%, HRL +0.1%, HSH -1.8%, TSN +1.3%, MON -2.1%, POT +0.8%, CF -2.1%, AGU -0.1%.
