Markets are fairly static, with currency movements probably being the main reason for any price movement thus far in 2018.
There appear to be ample stocks of feed wheat available which we think may keep values in check going forward since buying interest is currently limited. On a more positive note, we remain keen buyers of milling oats, quality wheat, and malting ( or even feed ) barley for the remainder of the current season, and the premiums for all these should be very attractive indeed. These are, in our opinion, a sell!
Buyers have largely completed their winter/spring buying and are now starting to look to summer values so they able to quote feed prices. It is still a little early for any new crop trade interest, but those requiring harvest movement should begin to look at opportunities as they arise.
UK Organic retail trade is recovering ( plus 6% yoy ) and are back all time high levels which is very encouraging – we hope additional demand will stimulate more interest throughout the Organic sector. There is more in conversion grain coming on stream, and in enough potential volume to work into some feed homes. If you will have 2nd year in conversion material for next year, please speak to us.
