Grain Commentary

  • November rainfall: 40.6 mm (Avg: 69.7 mm)
  • Rainfall year to date: 473.2 mm (Avg: 778.8 mm)
  • Wheat: -$5 ($310 to $320/tonne). Harvest grain is anticipated to work into farms soon and resulted in a slight softening of prices this week.
  • Barley: +$5 ($290 to $300/tonne). Barley harvest is a few weeks ahead of wheat.
  • Corn: +$10 ($380 to $390/tonne). Corn prices increased in contrast to other grains, likely a result of a lag in the market.
  • Canola Meal: Steady ($410 to $420/tonne). Canola meal prices remain steady as the new season canola prices have been strong. Overseas soybean meal prices softened in US dollar terms was largely cancelled out by the strong AUD.


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.
