Remarks:
1. Domestic soybean cost: soybean purchasing price + freight to the factory (Heilongjiang)
2. Oil extraction rate at 16%, and meal at 80%.
3. Estimated margins and actual profit in mills may have some differences as mills usually use their inventories or have already locked the cost previously, which may be different from intraday soybean cost on the basis of the CBOT price.
4. Soybean Break-even Price is calculated with intraday soybean cost and soybean oil price, and when the crush margins is ZERO, then it is soybean break-even price.
