I just sold 2 load feed wheat forward for October 2019. @ £141.
Gamble
But i try to sell 1/3 expected tonnage forward each season before harvest , 1/3 forward once it's in the shed then price the last 1/3 as and when
First time I e every gone and sold some for the following season !

My thinking is....... No one knows if the pound will weaken or strengthen, if we'll have a trade deal or rely on World Trade Rules, or what the situation will be post Brexit I think I can accept £141 hopefully as a Base price to build on

I have a similar view but not committed 2 years out, only for this autumn.

Can't even get £300 off the combine now! It's a pretty depressing crop as it stands.
I got quoted £295 today, with bonuses and a decent yield I can go at that. Decision to make is, should I? Having had the opportunity for considerably more it rankles, I do however always sell at harvest off the combine, although if we get into decent 3s again I may leap.

We normally sell at harvest, but put some into store this year......sold in December...
Actually the harvest sold and December sold came out at similar money this year, so I'd have been better selling all at harvest.

Decided to store it all this year.....

Gamble again.....Doh

You can get nearly £200 for hC beans for next year. Better than OSR?
Too much bruchid round here these days.
Think the hc job is done locally.
I didn't bother spraying this year for bruchid at all, but I know plenty did, I'm reliably informed the amount of beans good enough for hc was very small regardless.

It's the same here for us as well! Bloody hate the damn things. I agree It's not worth spraying for bruchid.

Glencore Agriculture UK OSR Pool was £330 delivered crush + Oil Bonuses for Oct/Dec 2017.

Currently taking bookings for Harvest 2018 pools. Please contact our Farm Trading Team (01844 261261).

A little ambiguous because every other company will quote a net ex farm price, after costs and charges.

I understand you want to make your price look as big as possible, but it would be better to publish the price in the same way as everyone does.

Wouldn't ex farm prices vary depending on distance to the crush, When I get my text off Glecore every morning OSR is always a delivered Liverpool price.

how does the pool prices work with a farmer say 2 miles from Ensus or me at £11 p/t haul or Selby at £6 , Will farmer 2 miles from Ensus get more in the pool than me?

Think other pools have been known to price ex farm, and add in bonuses for being closer.

Nice hard gp4 wheat has been going from here past Selby and to Ensus.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
