Markets have remained steady as readily available old crop supplies dwindle and freight rates stay firm. After an exceptionally dry and cold April, early May saw welcome rains even if temperatures are still low. This inclement weather has prolonged the feeding season and some mills have been working extra shifts to meet demand, which in turn means there will likely be extra buying interest seen for more late season wheat. Barley and Oats however are still difficult to sell.
New crop activity has yet to materialise in any volume, sellers feel that organic premiums over a strong non organic marketplace are not attractive, and have also been a little unsure of crop development. Buyers also report little interest in feed buying for autumn – some of this may be due to Soya values of around £1000/tonne as we go to press!
