Feed Barley Price Trend

The approximate price range for Australian barley in January and February 2022 was between 0.25 and 0.23 USD/kg. Malt barley is the most frequent type of grain used to manufacture beer in the brewing industry. As a result, the rapidly expanding beer business was driving the increase in barley consumption. A significant portion of the output was used for the brewing industry.

It was also frequently employed in the production of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, which aided the industry's expansion. For beer production, China and Japan import barley from the primary exporters of the crop. The feed industry is the most important application category for barley. As a result of the growing demand for feed, barley demand grew as well. The global barley market was supported by rising feed demand across the area, particularly in the United States. Consumer demand for the product was increasing across Europe, which helped boost overall demand and exports. Saudi Arabia, for example, imports massive amounts of barley only for feed.

Feed Barley refers to the use of barley grain for direct consumption by livestock. The type of barley selected for feeding purpose is different from the malting barley, which has lower protein, and thus, is better for brewing. Feed Barley is generally selected based on physical properties, for example, the plumpness of the kernel and high-test weights coupled with several other nutritional quality traits.
