Markets remain a little hand to mouth, with buyers fairly relaxed as they feel that feed values will slip in the spring when surplus stocks are made available. Animal feed demand will also reduce at this time, so sellers beware. Grain markets in general are finely balanced – there are ample feed stocks within the EU, but international trade has been supported of late by trade restrictions imposed by Russia.

Barley is currently enjoying a premium over wheat, which is unusual and we feel should be sold into. There are also still some exceptional premiums available for higher protein milling wheat – more samples please!

Attention will soon start to switch to new crop, and the price indication for November feed wheat is currently £212 per tonne.
