DTN Closing Grain Comments    01/28 14:01
   Grains Finish Sharply Higher to Cap Strong Week

   A solid finish to the week for the grains with sharp gains posted by corn,
soybeans and Minneapolis wheat. A strong energy sector added support. The U.S.
Dollar Index made fresh 18-month highs, but this didn't seem to deter most
commodity contracts. New contract highs were set in soybeans while corn sits
just below contract highs made last spring.
