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: Down $5 ($415 to $425/tonne). Barley: Steady ($360 to $370/tonne). Maize: Steady ($320 to $330/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($575 to $585/tonne).
- Wheat prices have remained quite buoyant despite the negative offshore price sentiment in the last week due to a lack of grower selling.
- Barley markets are continuing to show firmness relative to wheat and it feels like the more desired commodity on the bid side with a resurgence in interest from exporters and traders.
