 One notes a 10% drop in corn in 2 days and wonders what the impact of that on various markets is.

Since 2007-08, farmers have been upgrading their operations due to higher grain prices. Farmers have increased storage to the point where they are more likely to store their grain than pay storage at the local elevator. In general many have made capital improvements like crazy due to high grain prices, cheap money, and increased value of land. The benefit of the lower grain prices is that the consumer will have more money to be able to buy more pick-up trucks, etc. The cattle operator will also benefit with lower feed prices (which will increase his margins), which will be passed along to the consumer. This has been a very historic bull market in grains in it's longevity.
