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

  • Warm and stormy conditions over the last seven days for the region, with varied rainfall from 20mm to 70mm of rain.
  • The majority of hay has been bailed across the region, with growers now finishing off hay that has been weather damaged. Growing conditions have been good enabling growers to take second cuts of grass for silage and pasture hay.
  • Corn planting for chop silage continue in the region with forecasts of increased plantings by many dairy farmers this season. Focus for local growers in the region will now start to shift to grain harvest.
  • Trade is minimal at present; a significant number of local farmers have plenty of conserved fodder and good grazing grass for stock. Milder conditions and late spring rain have allowed feed to keep growing without farmers and growers having to utilise irrigation.
  • Changes to pricing this week.
  • Cereal hay: -$10 ($170 to $210/t). Prices have eased this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($380 to $410/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($70 to $100/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Pasture hay: -$10 ($210 to $250/t). Prices have eased 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.
