Editorial: A Look At The Feed Markets

In the US, there are reports of unstable crop markets, as corn, soybeans and wheat prices continue to move erratically.

Some major corn production areas remain behind in plantings, and some may not be planted at all. A recent report showed that only 19 per cent of the corn crop in Ohio had been planted as of 29 May. Overall, only 86 per cent of the crop acres had been planted as of 29 May, compared to 97 per cent a year ago.

In Europe there are concerns about the impact of dry weather on western European grain and oilseed crops.

Despite this, Russian authorities have decided to cancel an embargo on grain exports.

This ban was imposed last year in the wake of a severe drought. The ban will be lifted as of July 1. The government has decided to lift the ban saying that there are sufficient reserves, should the market become unstable.

In South Korea, the mixing of antibiotics with animal feed will be banned from July. The government is hoping that this will raise consumer trust in the safety of livestock products.
