Suppliers' quotes
 
Price quotes of US feed-grade whey softened to the range of US$ 639-772/tonne.
 
 
Market analysis
 
Although import costs of US whey products plummeted lately, prices were stable in China amid tight availability. Demand remained flat as feed millers were mot motivated to expand inventories with piglet feed consumption slow due to limited population and high mortality losses.
 
 
Market forecast
 
The upward potential of whey market is limited due to slack feed sales. With import costs falling substantially, traders are likely to lower prices in efforts to promote sales.
