Coronavirus update: Whilst at the moment the feed supply chain has not been impacted in terms of raw material availability, we need to be aware of the potential situations that could occur – e.g. ports or hauliers coming under pressure if drivers/dock workers are required to self-isolate. We are therefore asking for plenty of notice regarding your orders to help manage supply going forwards. The trading team will continue to keep you updated going forward.

High Proteins

Hipro soya – some but still minimal purchase from China of US beans keeping a lid on prices, as well as good planting progress in the US. Sterling has hindered and helped prices, ranging from $1.21 to $1.23, depending on how risk averse investors are. Brazilian currency is strong which is slowing farm selling, but US beans are more competitive for July onwards. As always, weather in the US needs to be watched.    

Rapemeal – prices moved back further, especially on old crop, as crushers need to move material. New crop crept back a bit more and looks a bit more of interest for Aug to Jan, so could be worth putting some cover on, though is still a little pricey vs hipro soya. Drier weather isn’t helping our already smaller planted area, but this needs to be balanced with the potential for higher oil demand as restrictions come to be lifted (would result in more meal around).

 

Mid Proteins

Glutens – good levels on maize gluten remain, and are still worth looking at cover on. Wheat gluten prices may not come back much more especially if wheat crops don’t get the rain they need. 

Distillers – similar to gluten, better maize distillers levels are around, and compete more against rapemeal so cover is worth looking at, especially if US demand picks up or other export desitnations become interested. 

 

Energies

Wheat/barley – as before, no rain in Western Europe is keeping grain markets moving up, and there seems to less wheat on farm than previously thought. Barley sellers are thin on the ground also. Any areas in Ukraine/Russia/Europe that did receive rains, were not enough. 

Maize – as wheat moves up, maize stays relatively the same, so winter levels look better value still. 

 

Fibres

Soya hulls – prices remain at good levels and discounted a lot against sugarbeet, so worth taking cover on the summer.  

Sugarbeet – home produced material is still available at competitive prices against imported for the summer. Some better levels on imported winter material available. 

 

Moist blends

We have a range of moist feeds available in 20T or 29T loads, in a variety of fibre and starch levels to suit your rations. Give us a call today to find out more.
