Our markets continue to track the weaker tone set in the conventional grain arena, although it has to said the premium for organic wheat in particular, at some £140/tonne over, has remained resilient.
We continue to believe that animal feed consumers will have more raw materials to buy from end March, but have sat out of the market whilst spot prices drift lower and been content to bide their time. The 2022/23 marketing season still has a long way to run, so we are reasonably confident that there will be further opportunity yet. Millers have been quiet since they bought most of their forecast demand some time ago, and if anything appear a little overbought.
Barley, and oats, remain a much more difficult sell despite some offers in the wholesale to discount further against wheat to stimulate some renewed buying activity. Do not dismiss a reasonable bid.
Import programmes have thankfully been scaled back to tighten supply, and this could help as we move towards the end of the ‘old’ crop season.
‘New’ crop – the 2023 harvest – remains too far off to contemplate for most, and of course we have the spring drilling campaign ahead.
