Market report

Courtesy of Simon Tubbs, Saxon Agriculture

Old crop organic markets are seeing good support for late season July/August collections against a very weak backdrop in the non-organic market. Continued supply issues in the organic protein market has forced greater cereal inclusion in feed formulations so we see a good (but temporary) opportunity for those with stock still to sell. Spanish organic cereals will be harvested in approximately three weeks time.

New crop domestic markets will begin to develop before long, but whilst quality and yield are clearly unknown at this point, trade will be limited for a few more weeks. We would indicate a value of around £200 ex farm for Nov/Dec feed wheat.

Saxon will again be offering a no commitment freepost sample service – simply tell us what you will expect to have to sell and we will supply bags and provide full accredited laboratory analysis. All we ask of you is a representative sample and a post box!
