Funds buying into rumours unfortunately
Bought cattle feed today was £20 a tonne cheaper than it was 2 Months ago
Was that a finishing feed or was it for stores?
It's for suckled calves, a blend.
Any ideas as to why soya has dropped about 11% in a week? Wheat has gone nearly asfar in the other direction.
Anyone got any prices for Pot Ale Syrup?
Spot price is about £72. There was winter contracts about £67 but non left at that .
Is that per tonne?
Cheaper as I was expecting
Yes per ton, but remember we are closer to disstillery's
That's OK though. I only want/need about 2tonne - I can go and collect as well
It's very cheap feed/balancer at that price.
Pot Ale ........Harbro quoted me £83/ton for 15 tons delivered Perth today.
I thought that was expensive?
What is the dry matter?
Not sure of the specific load but its usually 42 per cent.
Phoned my usual feed company today... they will do a 5t minimal load - coming from god knows where (company I thought stored it local, where I could collect, don't anymore and only sell 10t loads minimum).
Edit: will still take it at that though... I need such a little amount it will add pennies per tonne to the feed I'm mixing up
What can you do? I'm paying for wanting a smaller load. 10t would last over 2 years here! Plus I can't store that much... and I can not take an artic.
Might try Harbro, see what they say.
IBC's are plentiful around £20/£30. You could buy ten, they would hold over a ton a piece and allow you to buy bulk and still be quids in. Will no local feed mills sell you an IBC full collected. What about NWF? They have a mixing plant up your way don't they?
Nobody local stores liquids, as far as I'm aware - so I can't go and collect.
It'l depend how it's delivered how much we take/what we do... wether it's an artic or not - rigid access only up here.
can you not drop off some ibc at some location where they have a larger amount delivered and fill your ibc at the same time.
any body have prices for lamb finishing feed for this season yet ?
