Market analysis

Buying interest which picked up in the previous week waned before lysine prices could make any gain. Currently, feed millers were mostly procuring to meet immediate production needs.

Meanwhile, poultry feed demand remained sluggish due to the tainted eggs scandal and outbreaks of bird flu. On the other hand, hog inventory fell as release volumes increased amid higher demand by meat processing companies.
 

Market forecast

With feed demand weaker, prices of lysine are likely to soften in the near term.
