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 heavy rainfall across the region this week, with Warrick recording over 100mm. More rain is predicted for the coming seven days, with the southern parts of the state looking at medium to heavy rain, but most areas are anticipated to receive some rain.
  • Rain has interrupted hay production over the last half of the season, with the majority of hay having now been baled. There is now flooding through the region which is impacting any summer crops that have already been planted.
  • The rivers and dams are full, so many growers are expecting a good summer cropping season. Cotton production will most likely again increase this season with many growers now concentrating on this.
  • Trade has been occurring for predominately weaning cattle, while grazing has been good for many farmers. Limited amounts of straw will be made with most stained from the recent rain. Lucene continues to move for equine customers, slow but consistent.
  • No changes to pricing this week.
  • Cereal hay: +/-0 ($260 to $280/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($380 to $420/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($60 to $70/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Pasture hay: +/-0 ($200 to $240/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.
