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.
- Wheat: Up $5 ($240 to $250/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($200 to $210/tonne). Maize: Up $10 ($355 to $365/tonne). Sorghum: Down $3 ($267 to $277/tonne).
- Prices have increased after the Christmas break, as some growers have reduced the amount of wheat offered, preferring to maintain grain in storage.
- With the harvest finished in most regions of New South Wales, barley prices have remained steady over the Christmas break.
- Following improved weather and favourable forecasts, new crop sorghum prices have come under pressure.
