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.

Mega-Fat Multi  

Did you know feeding Mega-Fat Multi can help stretch out forage stocks and help mitigate the effects of heat stress? The unique combination of C16:0 (palmitic acid) and C18:1 (oleic acid) not only increases milk fat yields it also improves fibre digestion and boost the energy density of a ration. Please call your local trading office for more details.


High Proteins

Hipro soya – lack of crushing is looking likely in Argentina due to Coronavirus outbreaks closing plants and also lack of farmer selling (holding onto them as a hedge against poor currency). This combined with little Brazilian selling means higher South American premiums, fighting against an increasing US crop size. Crop ratings in the US improved again and they are set for a bumper crop if the weather holds for the next few weeks. Next summer prices are under £300 for delivery into most places, so could be worth putting some cover on, given we still have Brexit to contend with this autumn.

Rapemeal – no date yet for Eriths reopening, and EU material is getting very tight for Sep/Oct, as ADM bring it over to the UK to fulfil commitments. Cover is recommended on nearby material.

 

Mid Proteins

Glutens – Us value for maize gluten followed distillers up and also higher freight rates have competed with our better Sterling levels (more due to the Dollar weakness).

Distillers – Higher US maize distillers prices from short covering nearby and freight, were countered somewhat by better currency. Wheat distillers remain expensive, with very few offers for material in the EU.

 

Energies


Wheat/barley – Wheat/barley – Higher Russian yields and worldwide favourable weather has helped the market ease; UK harvest is a way off just yet, stronger currency has pushed prices back here somewhat.

Maize – Spot material is tight in the UK, and with Chinese buying and lack of farmer selling, prices are kept steady.

 

Fibres

Soya hulls – plack of crush in Argentina is pushing hulls prices up, and shippers are struggling to find shipments.

Sugarbeet – virus yellows have affected crops here and in the EU, and this has pushed prices up for the winter. The extent of the damage is not known yet
