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 the Bega Valley, New South Wales.

Commentary

  • Bega recorded up to 300mm of rain during May. Water levels of the Bega River (Bemboka) are still up with small amounts of localised flooding over roads. Reports that it is still better than last season.
  • Growers in the Pambula area have not been able to complete winter cropping due to the wet conditions, many will leave this now until July and August.
  • A wet and cold winter could see a demand for cereal hay and straw increase to carry stock through the colder months. Farmers are only just starting to feed out silage as grass growth beings to slow. Demand for purchase feed remains subdued.
  • Consistent small amounts of cereal hay coming onto the coast for dairy farmers with springing cattle.
  • No changes to prices this week.
  • Cereal hay: +/-0 ($290 to $320/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($550 to $600/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($200 to $230/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Pasture hay: +/-0 ($350 to $400/t). 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.
