Trident raises sugar beet feed prices

Feed supplier Trident has increased its sugar beet feed prices for 2006/2007 to reflect increases in production and haulage costs.

A 29t bulk-tipped load of sugar beet pellets delivered to farms in central England will cost about £105/t.

Prices for farms further away from the maker will vary depending on local haulage costs.

Further price details can be obtained from local merchants.
