  • January rainfall: 0 mm (Avg: 45.2 mm)
  • Rainfall year to date: 0 mm (Avg: 45.2 mm)
  • Wheat: +$5 ($290 to $300/mt). Grain into this region is now coming from ex farm locations that have finished harvest. New season prices are being dictated by Melbourne markets which have firmed. 
  • Barley: Steady ($280 to $290/mt). Barley has been strong due to a tight balance sheet globally and more export demand.  
  • Corn: Steady ($380 to $390/mt). With new crop still three months away supply is getting hard to find which is going to be supportive of price in the medium term.
  • Canola Meal: Steady ($415 to $425/mt). Prices steady this week, but there has been a big drop in global soybean meal prices in the past few weeks so it will be interesting to see if that flows through to canola meal prices in the coming weeks.


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.
