Suppliers' quotes

Price quotes of US feed-grade whey continued to stay flat in the range of US$331-551/tonne.

In Europe, whey prices strengthened to the range of EUR580-600/tonne.
 

Market analysis

Demand for hog increased lately amid falling weather temperatures. Nevertheless, the sales of whey remained slow while piglet inventories stayed low. With profit margins meagre and prices of whey showing signs of rising in Europe, traders stood firm during the week in review.
 

Market forecast

With piglet consumption slow, usages of whey will be limited. However, tight rail schedules due to the stormy winter climates are likely to delay deliveries, hence lending support to the whey market.
