CHICAGO, June 10 (Reuters) – Chicago Board of Trade corn futures ended slightly higher on Friday as the market was buoyed by U.S. supply issues, traders said.
* Traders analyzed weather forecasts for crops in the United States, with high temperatures expected to hit corn in the Midwest in the coming days.
* The benchmark July CBOT corn futures contract CN2 was up 1/4 cent at $7.73-1/4 a bushel on the fifth straight day of gains.
* Slow farmer sales and firm spot prices supported the market, traders said.
* The U.S. Department of Agriculture, in a monthly report, pegged corn ending stocks at 1.485 billion bushels for 2021/22 and 1.400 billion for 2022/23. Both were above analysts’ expectations.
