Japan to import 60,020 T feed wheat and barley via tender


Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture said it would import 55,480 tonnes of feed-quality wheat, and 4,540 tonnes of barley for livestock use, via a simultaneous buy and sell (SBS) auction that closed late on Wednesday.

The ministry had sought 120,000 tonnes of feed wheat and 200,000 tonnes of feed barley to be loaded by Nov. 30 and arrive in Japan by Jan. 31, 2017 in the tender that is usually conducted weekly.

It is seeking the same amounts for each grain to be loaded and shipped during the same period in a similar tender that will be held on Aug. 10.

Japan buys a small portion of feed wheat and barley via so-called SBS auctions, in which end-users and importers specify the origin, price and quantity of grain, allowing millers to meet their varied needs for the feed grain.

Following are details of the results, with the quantity in tonnes and the average price in yen per tonne:
