Grain Commentary

  • February rainfall: 19.6 mm (Avg: 90.7 mm)
  • Rainfall year to date: 121 mm (Avg: 171.4 mm)
  • Wheat: +$5 ($325 to $335/tonne). Prices firmed again this week driven by the ongoing strength in global wheat markets. Demand from northern regions is going to continue to add support to markets.
  • Barley: +$10 ($325 to $335/tonne). Chinese demand continues to provide support to barley and sorghum. The recent Saudi tender has provided a price floor.
  • Corn: Steady ($425 to $435/tonne). Prices remain steady and demand fairly quiet. New season price will most likely sell at a large discount.
  • Canola Meal: Steady ($425 to $435/tonne). Canola meal prices remain well supported with strong demand from the dairy industry and strong global soybean meal prices.

Notes:

Change in price is the change since the last report. Prices are estimates based on delivery to dairy farms with allowance for freight, storage, and marketing costs, but exclusive of GST. Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in a region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley.

This report has been commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of grain and hay markets in each dairying region. It should be remembered that actual prices may vary for quality or other reasons.
