Nov. 30, 2012 at 5:18 PM

CHICAGO, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Grain futures prices closed mostly lower Friday on the Chicago Board of Trade.

Corn was off 3 1/2 to off 6, soybeans were up off 7 3/4 to off 9 1/4, wheat was off 16 to off 24 1/2 and oats were off unchanged to up 3/4.

Corn prices slipped with traders moving to take profits on the last trading day of the month.
