Notes:

Change in price is the change since the last report. Hay quoted is sourced and delivered locally, GST exclusive unless stated otherwise. It should be noted that local prices quoted may not be the cheapest available, sourcing it from another region may be more affordable, and buyers are encouraged to evaluate all options. Prices are indicative to a mid-range shedded product, and based on the best indication of market value at the time of reporting. It should be noted there is a wide variation in quality of hay, prices for a mid-range product will not reflect the weighted average of trade. Prices will naturally vary based on the product quantity and quality, buyer/seller relationship and the size of the trade.

This report has been commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of grain and hay markets in each dairy region. It should be remembered that actual prices may vary for quality or other reasons. Whilst all reasonable steps have been taken to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this report, Dairy Australia disclaims all liability to the fullest extent permitted by Australian law for any inadvertent errors and for any losses or damages stemming from reliance upon its content. Dairy Australia recommends all persons seek independent advice and, where appropriate, advice from a qualified advisor before making any decisions about changes to business strategy.

This report summarises the hay market for north-west Tasmania.

Commentary

  • 12-20mm of rain fell across the region this week.
  • If growers can get the drying time, it is likely to be a good spring/summer with high yields.
  • Silage is starting to be cut in the Broadmeadows area. Reports suggest some of this silage is being made too early and could result in bad bails.
  • Demand is down, reflecting the good feed available in the region.
  • Dairy farmers are starting to plant forage mix (Italian rye) that will either be grazed over the summer or made into silage around January.
  • There is very little to no lucerne, pasture hay or straw in the region. Prices have held this week and are not expected to ease much further.
  • Cereal hay: +/-0 ($220 to $280/tonne) Prices remain steady this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($300 to $350/tonne) Prices have eased this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($150 to $200/tonne) Prices remain steady this week.
  • Pasture hay: +/-0 ($250 to $320/tonne) Prices remain steady this week.
  • Please note unless stated otherwise, prices are per tonne, sourced and delivered locally. The price range indicated is for feeds of varying quality with the price range generally indicative of quality of feed. We recommend feed testing and viewing of fodder before purchase to be sure of the quality of feed. We recommend feed testing and viewing of fodder before purchase to be sure of the quality of feed.
