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 $10 ($270 to $280/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($205 to $215/tonne). Maize: Steady ($355 to $365/tonne). Sorghum: Down $10 ($325 to $335/tonne).
- Soil moisture levels have improved in parts of southern Queensland, after receiving strong rainfall levels.
- As the harvest season has started to wrap up along the east coast, wheat and barley prices have strengthened as demand begins to increase.
- After recent wet weather conditions, new crop sorghum prices have reduced, with sources indicating planting will continue into late January throughout southern Queensland.
