Straights Update

 

 16th March 2018 0845 602 7321 Currency – £/$ 1.3966  £/Euro 1.1333

 

Because the weather has remained cold and wet demand for feed is high which is putting great strain on transport and supplies.  This will make maintaining smooth supplies during the Easter period at the end of this month (Easter alert 30th March to 2nd April) more challenging so we would appreciate it if requirements for the next 3 weeks could be placed as soon as possible.

 

The USDA report last week increased the Brazilian crop to 113MMT and reduced the Argentinean crop to 47MMT which is predicted to be further reduced.  The rain that is now in the forecast is reported as being too little too late to be beneficial but the sentiment is good.  

Grain supplies remain tight with the re-opening of Vivergo adding more uncertainty.  There are now Wheat Distillers prices available for the summer.  Some EU rape crushers are moving over to soybeans for May, Jun and July which will tighten meal supplies.
