Anybody buying crimped barley?

Just wondering if anybody on here has bought crimped barley lately? Have 60 tonnes to sell and wondering what its making, would £130 be a ball park?
What moisture is it? I think you’re getting mixed up between wet and dry
No, and do not forget you have the extra cost of the treatment for crimp v dry grain as well!

If you charge £162 for crimp you can knock off £20 ton in extra costs v dry grain at least so you are selling it for £142 ton in real terms!

Crimp grain is a far better feed than dry grain.

To be honest, £130/140 is about the mark.
you wont be buying much at that!

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
