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.

Proteins 

Hipro soya – a severe drop in currency in the last week to 10 days has resulted in prices being up drastically. Some concerns over feed producers switching from using distillers to soya meal, due to lower availability of distillers (see below). Some drier weather is supporting bean prices, as well as a strike being called in Argentinian ports over safety fears (fears this could impact on boat loading). South American farmer selling is slow. Overall most of the price increase has come from currency though. 

Rapemeal – similarly, currency has pushed prices up. Concerns over the diesel demand on the continent has dropped rapeseed oil prices (a large majority goes into biodiesel), and so impacted the seed price too – this unfortunately has meant an increase in meal prices as crushers try to recoup some margin.

Distillers – maize distillers’ prices increased as worries over the impact of the coronavirus on ethanol demand, this is causing plants to slow production or shut down completely. That, and the drop in currency, has pushed prices up.

 

Fibres 

Soya hulls – currency has pushed prices up.

Sugarbeet – currency pushed prices up a little; Trident have reissued their 2nd offer, please contact us for info.

Grains 

Wheat/barley – prices have been fairly stagnant considering that normally the drop in currency would boost out market. The global uncertainty around demand has kept a lid on prices for now.

Maize – the drop in currency has pushed them up also.

Glutens – the drop in currency has increased prices but some cover may still be worth looking at.

Prolin – a high quality rumen protected linseed source. The palatable, energy rich feed contains omega 3 oils which are available to improve the cows fertility. Now available in 25kg bags -  please get in touch with your local trading office for more details

Molasses – increased usage in ethanol plants and volatile currency is likely to push prices higher this summer.  Worth topping up tanks in March/April, please call your local office to book in.
