Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Steady ($390 to $400/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($530 to $540/tonne). Maize: Steady ($545 to $555/tonne). Sorghum: Up $10 ($370 to $380/tonne).
  • Cool and dry conditions have prevailed across the northern NSW and QLD growing regions, with rainfall almost non-existent. The next ten days may bring some light showers which may keep crops able to get out of the ground going, but it is unlikely to build the requisite sub-soil moisture needed for the upcoming months.
  • Old crop wheat demand remains in line with new crop as a result of the dry conditions. Demand for imports from VIC and WA is likely to firm up prices as supply will come from these states again.
  • New crop wheat prices continued the firm trend as the lack of grower forward selling and stronger WA export values added support to prices in conjunction with the dry conditions. Suppliers from WA and VIC appear well placed to meet local consumer demand.
  • Barley markets have largely aligned themselves with wheat, but demand for feed barley remains firm as many growers look to offload last year’s crop to capture pre-harvest delivery premiums.
     
     

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. Whilst all reasonable steps have been taken to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this report, to the fullest extent permitted by Australian law Dairy Australia disclaims all liability for any inadvertent errors and for any losses or damages stemming from reliance upon its content.  Dairy Australia recommends that all persons seek independent advice and, where appropriate, advice from a qualified adviser, before making any decisions about changes to business strategy.
