Notes:

Change in price is the change since the last report. Prices are estimates based on delivery to dairy farms with allowance for freight, storage, and marketing costs, but exclusive of GST. Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in a region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley.

 

Commentary

  • Wheat: Steady ($310 to $320/tonne). Barley: Steady ($280 to $290/tonne). Maize: Steady ($330 to $340/tonne). Sorghum: Up $5 ($305 to $315/tonne).
  • Dry and cool weather conditions have continued across much of the state over the past week, with some light showers on Tuesday.
  • Wheat prices fluctuated over the past week. Local new crop delivered values were generally firmer with tight logistics and an absence of grower selling. Softer offshore markets weighed on values.
  • Old crop barley values were a little softer this week with some price support from a lack of grower selling, constrained logistics and growing support from offshore feed grain values and demand.
  • Sorghum prices were firmer this week with reports of quality issues, some cause by mice damage.
