Suppliers' quotes
 
In Europe, whey prices were mainly around US850/tonne.
 
Price quotes of US feed-grade whey were in a wider range of US$463-639/tonne.
 
 
Market analysis
 
Demand for whey improved of late, despite flat inventories of piglets, as feed millers increased stockpiles amid concerns that prices might surge amid with global dairy markets staying robust. Traders took the opportunity to lift prices as sales picked up.
 
During August, China imported 49,200 tonnes of whey, higher than July's imports by 5.4%.
 
 
Market forecast
 
Whey prices are expected to stay stable. Demand for whey will slow down as feed millers gradually halt operation in the coming period. Moreover, buying interest will weaken as prices of whey have increased more than 6% over the past two weeks.
