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

  • It was a relatively dry week in the northern parts of the region, with reports of only light rain.
  • Growers still baling silage in between rain events, rain every week at present with 100mm being recorded for November. Pasture hay to be cut later this month as conditions improve, quality will be an issue. The south and western parts of the Gippsland are still significantly wet, higher country has also been unable to be accessed by machinery.
  • Quality of silage being produced in the south has been well down this season. About half the amount of silage has been produced in comparison to a normal season. Growers will be cutting well into the new year.
  • Corn plantings for chopped silage again to be reduced due to the ongoing wet conditions in the south. Farmers have feed out majority of last season’s silage and are looking to secure good quality fodder for the next twelve months.
  • Reports of some vetch coming into the region from Charlton. South Gippsland is expected to need feed over the next twelve months.
  • Changes to pricing this week.
  • Cereal hay: -$15 ($190 to $210/t). Prices have eased this week.
  • Lucerne hay: -$15 ($550 to $570/t). Prices have eased this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($70 to $85/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Pasture hay: +/-0 ($90 to $110/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.
