All arable markets can only be described as fully firm, with record highs being seen almost on a daily basis on wheat futures prices as we go to press. Organic markets are also strong in their own right, in part due to little domestic cereals being actively offered for sale, limited availability from some import origins, and also the frenzied freight market all combining to propelling imported prices much higher.
Large scale buyers have now largely covered their requirements to Easter 2022, with some even extending their cover well into the summer which is relatively unusual in our marketplace. As we now move into winter after a relatively mild autumn we can only expect feed demand to increase, with retail buyers trading on a spot basis.
The firm market trend looks to be maintained, but those of a nervous disposition are concerned that there must be a reversal at some point although we have to say this is a minority held view in the short term with fundamentals as they currently are.
For now it seems that sellers best strategy is to watch and wait…usual caveats apply!
