Biofuel industry pushing up feed prices

Published on 10 November, 2007, Last updated at 07:00 GMT


The push in the United States toward biofuels is forcing up the price of horse feed.

Farmers who once grew grain and hay are turning in increasing numbers to biofuel crops because returns are in many cases better.

In parts of the US where drought has also had an effect, hay prices have nearly doubled in the last year.
