AFTER a week when the market steadied, the price of imported soyameal eased again when the first shipment of this years South American supplies reached Avonmouth.

High-protein supplies fell by £13 to £161/ tonne, according to KW Agriculture. And prices could ease further as more shipments arrive. Forward prices for April suggest a value of about £156/ tonne is on the cards.

The price of distillers dried meal also dropped this week. Imported supplies fell by £7 to £105/ tonne. The strong Pound continues to suck in exports but prices are expected to fall only slightly lower over the coming weeks.

Of the other ruminant straights, only maize gluten increased in price. Home-produced pellets climbed £2 to £95/ tonne. Home-produced meal also climbed £2 and is now trading at £79/ tonne. Imported supplies are £4 more expensive at £82/ tonne.

All other ruminant straights are available at last weeks prices.
