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.

The hay report has been commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of hay markets in each dairy region. This report is created using data provided by the Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA). 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. 

Commentary

  • There was no rain recorded in the last seven days for the region.
  • Majority of hay in the north of the region has been baled with growers now focussing on grain harvest.
  • Hay growers in the Owen area have managed to produce a good quality product despite only two – three relatively good wet months. Exporters taking this for top quality and filling gaps where other growers have been affected by rain and dry conditions and unable to meet the grade. Crops affected by frost that were destined for grain were also cut for hay this year.
  • Domestic trade is well down and new season hay is being produced for personal use. Straw production will again be up this season where crops have been tall enough with orders for pig breeders, small feedlots as well as for use across sandhills.
  • No changes to prices this week.
  • Cereal hay: +/-0 ($180 to $220/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($400 to $450/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($90 to $140/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.
