Grain Commentary

  • November rainfall: 1.8 mm (Avg: 28.0 mm)
  • Rainfall year to date: 293.9 mm (Avg: 352.7 mm)
  • Wheat: Steady ($240 to $250/tonne). The wheat market remain steady, waiting for the new season harvest for direction.
  • Barley: Steady ($220 to $230/tonne). Barley harvest should be well underway which could provide some good buying opportunities.
  • Corn: +$10 ($385 to $395/tonne).
  • Canola Meal: Steady ($440 to $450/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.
