Feed Price Impact

Feed is the largest component of the Farm-Gate Minimum Live Price (FGMLP). Changes in feed prices can have a significant impact on the FGMLP. 

Given the feed conversion, the FGMLP changes by $0.10/kg for every $0.0552/kg change in the feed price in the same direction. The following table provides examples of this relationship at different amounts of feed price changes:
