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

  • Parts of the region recorded 300mm of rain for November. New South Wales has recorded its wettest November in 100 years.
  • The Lachlan River and Macquarie River flooding causing significant damage and loss of new season crops. Burrendong dam is currently sitting at 144.8% capacity and Carcoar Dam near Orange is 100.1%. Flooding has made it as far west as Hillston where a variety of new season crops are laying under water.
  • Only a small amount of hay has been produced this year, quality is good where rain has been minimal. Lucerne growers in the region are set to have another good season if paddocks can dry out.
  • Local trade continues to be minimal, still a significant amount of carry over hay of varied quality from last season stored in the region. Farmers seeking good quality cereal hay locally will have difficulty finding this.
  • For flood assistance contact NSW Rural Assistance Authority Disaster Assistance (nsw.gov.au) Service NSW can also assist with checking your eligibility.
  • Changes to pricing this week.
  • Cereal hay: -$20 ($180 to $220/t). Prices have eased this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($300 to $340/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($60 to $80/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Pasture hay: +/-0 ($160 to $200/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.
