The tight supply of corn, soy, and palm oil-based ingredients in recent months has dominated all developments in the feed industry, said Matthew Clark, Managing Director of The Feed Guys. “Corn has been extremely short, and some countries have been panic buying, causing shortages. Now it seems to have leveled off somewhat. It is not so much China activity—although that impacts from one week to another—it’s the overall fundamentals of being short of good quality ingredients,” he explained.
