Japan to import 1,000 tonnes feed barley via tender

TOKYO, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Japan's Ministry of Agriculture
said it would import 1,000 tonnes of feed-quality 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 Jan. 31, 2015 and
arrive in Japan by Feb. 27 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 Nov. 26.
    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.
    Details of the results are below, with the quantity in
tonnes and the average price in yen per tonne:
Feed wheat                 0              N.A.             N.A.
Feed barley            1,000              N.A.             N.A.
