Ms. Yang, a farmer in Hebei Province, planted several acres of corn at home. She told the daily economic news that the early maturing corn in the village has basically been collected, and some late maturing corn has been confiscated.

When the reporter asked about the current corn price, Ms. Yang said with a sigh, a while ago, the price quoted by the processing enterprises who came to the village to collect corn was 1.3 yuan per kilogram, which has been the sky high price for several years here. In the spring of this year, the purchase price was only 89 cents a catty.

The reporter made a simple conversion according to the price of 1.3 yuan / Jin, which is equivalent to 2600 yuan per ton.

The price rise of corn drives up the price of breeding feed

Corn is not only the main food crop in China, but also one of the main raw materials of breeding feed. Therefore, the rise of corn price also led to the rise of feed price.

Henan Xinxin animal husbandry Co., Ltd. is a large-scale breeding company with more than 60000 live pigs on hand. The company has its own feed processing plant. Zhang Xinyu, the companys general manager, told the daily economic news that they not only collected corn directly from farmers, but also purchased corn from purchasing enterprises.

Zhang Xinyu admitted that compared with the same period last year, the price of corn this year has increased by more than 20% per ton. Last year, the purchase price of corn was less than 2000 yuan per ton, which was about 1800-1900 yuan. Now the actual transaction price has risen to 2400-2500 yuan per ton.

The increase in feed costs will also drive up the price of pork. Zhang Xinyu explained that the raw materials of feed include corn, soybean meal, bran and so on. According to the current feed to meat ratio, the cost of these raw materials increases, which makes the feeding cost of a kilogram of pork increase by about one yuan.

The person in charge of the enterprise explained that this was equivalent to the rise of corn price, which led to the rise of pig feed price by 360 yuan / ton. If the price of soybean meal and other raw materials were added, the price of a ton of feed was estimated to rise by more than 400 yuan.

When asked how to deal with the increase in feed costs caused by the rise in corn prices, the person in charge said frankly, there is no way. Feed must be used.

Corn prices are expected to be difficult to fall in the near future

The grain output of Suihua City in Heilongjiang Province accounts for one seventh of the whole province, and it is also an important corn producing area. A local farmer told the daily economic news that due to three successive typhoons at the end of August and the beginning of September in Northeast China, a lot of corn fell over, and a large amount of water accumulated in some fields, which made the harvesting machine unable to enter, resulting in the harvest cost greatly increased.

However, in Tang Haibos view, the main reason for the rise in corn was the increase of corn processing capacity in the region and the rapid development of animal husbandry, which led to a tight supply. The prices in the main production areas in the Northeast have risen, so have the sales areas in the south.

As far as Qiqihar is concerned, it is because some new corn processing enterprises have been set up. Tang Haibo said. Asked if the corn processing enterprises have not been able to collect corn, he said that at present, it is OK, because the enterprises have not been completed and can not reach the production capacity. In addition, with the increase of corn price, the processing cost will certainly increase, but the enterprise benefit will also be improved. In Zhang Xinyus view, the rise of corn price is related to the decrease of soybean import. Soybean is an important food for feed. The supply of soybean is reduced and corn is needed to replace it, so the demand of corn will increase. In addition, in recent years, Chinas pig stock has been steadily recovering. The person in charge of Nanping breeding enterprise in Fujian said that once the pig stock increases, the demand for feed will increase, and the supply of corn will be tightened. For the future corn price trend, Tang Haibo analysis that the price is difficult to decline in the near future. Source of this article: Yang Bin, editor in charge of daily economic news_ NF4368
