- Delivered UK cereal prices closed lower last week.
Bread wheat prices fell by around 1.50/tonne,
feed wheat prices closed 2/t lower.
- Delivered feed wheat prices have now fallen around 4/t since early October, pulling milling
wheat prices lower too.
A combination of the strong Pound, limited consumer buying demand and sufficient farm grain being made available has
pressured UK prices lower.
- Bread wheat premiums over feed have also fallen,
from around 19/t early October to 16/t last week, basis Liverpool.
Brokers suggest the price fall reflects the ready availability of suitable wheat in the marketplace and cautious buying from the milling industry.
- Despite ex-farm prices now being under 60/t across the country, merchants report steady but continued farm grain sales.
