Australian Dollar USD0.898
Corn USD4.45 per bushel on Chicago Board of Trade Futures
Dry and hot weather in many growing regions of Australia has seen Cottonseed prices surge and related by products also. Feed in general is at a premium in Australia and the only thing dampening demand in world prices is the massive Soybean and Corn crop being harvested currently in South America. Cottonseed( CSD ) trading at USD500mt ex gin for Australian new crop April/ May / June position.
Lucerne Hay is trading close to USD400mt fob Aussie main ports and rising due to drought. Export is not viable or possible due to these levels.
All filler ( fibre) products are stronger since December last year and will continue to firm in price the longer we don't get rain. CSD Hull pellets being offered at USD250mt Fob main Australian ports which is not workable for export mkt. Reflects the domestic demand situation in Queensland and parts of NSW which desperate for any animal feed.
Outlook strong on all Fibre and Forage. Californian drought doesn't appear to be breaking any time soon and so keeping world CSD at elevated levels. Corn and Wheat seem to have bottomed out and are ready for a run. CSD harvest begins in Australia next month( early this year) but don't expect this to dampen demand or prices which will remain strong without rain.

Big week for all Protein in the world as End users in  major buying countries ( Indonesia, Thailand and Taiwan) all showed increased demand. Soymeal has been strong on CBOT ( USD375st ) and couple this with a fall in kills in Australia / NZ and sluggish ones in the USA. The market has jumped USD30-40mt on MBM from 2 weeks ago in CNF terms. Feathermeal has seen values rise over USD50mt in the same period. Bottom line is prices wont be falling for some time and the rises will only be stilted by steadying as buyers take a breather on orders.

General tone of the market is weak with Soymeal values steadily falling as the US crop has been harvested( 80% complete). Animal proteins such as Meat and Bone Meal and Feathermeal are falling in price and the seasonal aspect in Australia has seen producers increasing the kill to turn more head into cash before Christmas. European debt issues aren't helping matters perhaps the New Year could see the bottoming of the market???  Read More.
