DOMESTIC soyameal prices slipped this week as the South American soyabean harvest continued apace. Imported high-protein soyameal dropped £9 to £149/ tonne – the lowest price for months.

Analysts expect soya values to fall further over the coming months, despite a recent upturn in the US prices. The US market is burdened by high carry-over stocks from last year and this seasons harvest will boost supplies further.

Of the other ruminant straights in our table below, Supergrains also showed a large fall in price. Domestic supplies of Supergrains has eased by £7.50 over the past few days to just £20/ tonne.

Vitagold dropped £9 to £28/ tonne, and domestic maize gluten meal eased £2 to £79/ tonne. The only climber of the week was domestic rapeseed meal which edged up £1 to £90/ tonne.

All other ruminant straights remain available at last weeks prices.
