Concentrate Prices

Published 16 November 18

Historic concentrate prices are available from Kingshay and Promar, although are often 2-3 months out of date. More up-to-date concentrate prices are estimated using the AHDB calculated price. This price is formulated by using a blend of wheat, barley, soyabean meal and rapeseed meal straight prices, as collected by AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds. Then an estimated cost is added on to account for processing costs and the addition of minerals and other supplements.

The aim is to improve transparency around price movements, give some indication of movement in concentrate prices, and inform forward planning by the industry.

It is important to note that the figures simply provide an indication of the direction and size of expected concentrate price movements based on the historic relationship between straight prices and concentrate prices, and may not necessarily equate to actual price changes.
