   Wheat..West coast wheat markets remained relatively quiet as the week
got underway, with current price levels finding very limited farm selling
interest.  Trade focus has remained primarily on logistics, with Portland
exporters making a final push to get barges downriver before an extended 
maintenance closure of the river systems begins next week. Many areas of
the Pacific Northwest received a covering of snow over the past few days,
welcomed ahead of an extended forecast of colder temperatures.
   Shipments...Weekly export inspections showed a solid improvement for
U.S. wheat loadings over the past week, coming in at 16.6 mb to put the
current year toal at 498 mb and 29% ahead of a year ago. Top shipper was
hard red winter wheat with 5.5 mb, followed by hard red spring with 5.3
mb.  Soft white registered a total of 3 mb and soft red winter claimed a
total of 2.7 mb.  Japan was top destination off the west coast with 2.4 
mb. China and Chile each took on 1.6 mb and South Korea loaded 1.2 mb.
