Soya prices have taken a bit of a hike this week following a week when Sterling weakened, China secured more cargoes of beans with trade talks resuming and lower than forecast numbers for corn and soya were reported in the US quarterly stocks report. There could be a downward correction but could be volatile in the near term. Soybean plantings in Brazil are sharply behind last year’s pace with more rain required in some regions.

The rapemeal market has pushed up which could calm down if soya comes back but prices are still relatively good through to January.

While wheat prices have been edging up, barley hasn’t moved as much so it may pay to look at some cover as well as for Maxi Barley.

One product that does look good value is soya hulls, having come back in price over the last couple of weeks. It is now £30 cheaper than sugar beet for now through to April but likely to start moving up soon.

Molasses – winter cover is advised as prices are likely to increase during the season. It could be a good idea to top up fats supplies by the end of the month as prices are moving up.

Megalac, MVF MegaFat Multi and Butterfat Extra are still at competitive levels. On the organic front, cereals and rape expellers in artic loads may be worth looking at.
