Japan to Import 130 Tonnes of Feed Barley via Tender
Would import feed-quality barley for livestock via SBS auction
Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) said it would import 130 tonnes of feed-quality barley for livestock use via a simultaneous buy and sell (SBS) auction that closed late on Wednesday, reports Reuters.
The ministry had sought 120,000 tonnes of feed wheat and 200,000 tonnes of feed barley to be loaded by Oct. 31 and arrive in Japan by Dec. 28 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 July 18.
