Birdseeds Firm in Limited Trade

PANAMA - Dec 29/19 - SNS -- North American birdseed ingredient markets were largely unchanged in limited trading activity on account of holiday period.

Discussing the situation, the U.S. based National Sunflower Association noted, "The rally in sunflower prices continues at the crush plants as nearby prices remain stronger than normal for this time of the year. A late and slower than normal harvest has oilseed crushers searching for seed supplies.

"Birdfood prices have seen some upward movement gaining 50 cents to $1.50 per cwt. in some locations."
