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 ($300 to $310/tonne). Barley: Down $5 ($240 to $250/tonne). Maize: Down $20 ($305 to $315/tonne). Canola Meal: Down $60 ($435 to $445/tonne).
- Wheat prices have remained steady over the past week, however with some site prices sitting higher, interest has been sparked with some growers looking to clear warehoused tonnes.
- Barley values have also been steady, with small upwards and downwards price changes depending on the site. Many growers have shifted their focus from post-harvest selling to sowing preparation ahead of a traditional ANZAC day start.
- Canola prices have increased over the past week following a rise in offshore canola future markets.
