Usages of calcium phosphate remained slow as the poultry markets performed poorly. However, delayed deliveries of the product in Yunnan due to tight rail schedules lifted prices steadily during November. Feed millers who kept inventories low eagerly restocked supplies amid fears of soaring costs.


Calcium phosphate prices are seen higher with supplies tight.
