Peking Ducks Make Do With Moutai Grain on U.S. Corn Ban

Millers of animal feed in China, the world’s largest meat producer, are buying a record amount of sorghum after the government curbed U.S. corn imports, a Bloomberg News survey shows.

Imports of the coarse grain may climb to a record 3.5 million metric tons in the 12 months beginning Oct. 1, compared with a projected 3 million tons in the current period, according to the median of five estimates from traders and analysts this week. Inbound shipments were 629,634 tons in the 12 months through September 2013.
