Managing feed price volatility

Demand for BPEX-organised risk management workshops has been so great a new date has been added. In addition to those already organised, a further workshop will be held in Devon, on Tuesday, February 8.

Feed represents more than 60% of a pig producer’s costs and over the past few months there have been unprecedented increases in feed wheat prices globally.

BPEX and the NPA have joined forces to hold this series of risk management workshops to highlight what tools are available to help protect businesses from volatile prices, their potential benefits and their limitations.

The workshops are being led by Offre Demande Agricole which is a French company that has been offering training and expertise in this area for a number of years in France to arable and pig producers.

Following this series of short workshops BPEX will be arranging more extensive training for businesses interested in actively using the tools.

Details of the workshops are:

East Anglian - Jan 13, Brome Grange Hotel, Eye, Suffolk, starting at 4.30 with a hot buffet from 4pm
Yorkshire - Jan 18, Crown Hotel Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire, starting at 4.30 with a hot buffet from 4pm.
South West - Tuesday February 8, 4.30-6.30 (buffet and coffee from 4pm), Padbrook Park, Cullompton, Devon EX15 1RU

Anybody who wishes to attend one of the workshops, should contact Sonia Bryson, email sonia.bryson@bpex.org.uk or by phone on 02476 478790.
