Thailand's association of feed mills (TFMA) is believed to have made no purchase in a tender for up to 193,300 tonnes of animal feed wheat which closed on Wednesday, European traders said.
Prices were regarded as too high.
Traders said the group was seeking to pay about $215 a tonne c&f, with lowest sale offers estimated to be around $224 to $225 a tonne c&f, traders said.
The wheat was sought in three consignments sourced from global origins excluding Russia, Brazil and Pakistan, they said.
Some 73,300 tonnes was sought for shipment between Oct. 1-31, 60,000 tonnes between Nov. 1-30 and 60,000 tonnes between Dec. 1-31.
Importers in Thailand purchased more than 100,000 tonnes of optional-origin feed wheat in a tender that closed on July 1.
