Birdseeds Hold Firm As Stocks Tighten

PANAMA - Feb 15/19 - SNS -- Birdseed ingredient markets finished the week mostly unchanged to slightly firmer as markets adjust to a steady reduction in supplies relative to prospective demand.

This is clearly the case with oil type sunflower, which was generally firmer on the week, despite some weakness in canola and soybeans.

White proso millet values have stabilized, with values now at levels which are keeping available supplies in line with short term demand.


Mustard Remains Steady

PANAMA - Feb 15/19 - SNS -- North American mustard seed markets maintained their recent steady tone through the past week, with little movement in spot or new crop prices.

Grower bids were unchanged in Canadian dollar terms, but eased in U.S. currency because of modest firmness in the value of the Canadian dollar.

Spot bids for yellow mustard remain around the middle of their historic price range, while oriental bids are in the bottom third and brown just below the mid-point.
