Global Feed Markets: January - February 2013


Published on

WITH most of 2012’s adverse supply developments now factored into prices, world grain and feed markets are now starting to fix their sights more firmly on 2013/14 crop prospects. A recovery is certainly needed in 2013 cereal output. Latest estimates show world production this season is dropping by about 75m tonnes or just over 4% but consumption by only 37m tonnes or 2%, the balance coming off stocks.

So far, things are looking promising for South American supply to reach or even exceed targets.
