Feed grain prices updated hourly on website

Pig producers can now check out up-to-date feed grain prices, allowing producers to manage feed costs effectively.

The section on the BPEX website is as a result of the collaboration between BPEX and HGCA – both now part of the new Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board. It covers future prices for wheat, soyabean meal and maize, all of which are updated hourly while markets are trading. Graphs will also show longer-term trends in feed grain prices.

HGCA’s Alastair Dickie says: “Spot prices have dropped back from the highs, but it is still a volatile market and likely to stay that way, so this will give producers the best chance to mange their feed costs effectively.”
