Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Down $5 ($385 to $395/tonne). Barley: Steady ($360 to $370/tonne). Maize: Up $10 ($530 to $540/tonne). Oats: Steady ($495 to $505/tonne).
  • The productive potential of crops in SA continues to decline, with the frost event that occurred on the last weekend of September continuing to have an impact on crops here.
  • This is seeing more and more growers opting to cut crops for hay, rather than harvesting for grain later in the year.
  • Looking ahead, the fact that grain will keep being pulled from SA to the east coast over the coming season looks as though it will create a slightly more dynamic market in SA over the coming year, compared to what we have seen in other years.
  • It is expected that there will be more demand for grain at sites where it is easier to move grain to the east coast. The areas most impacted by this are expected to be the lower north and mid north.
  • For those looking to buy grain from these and other locations over the coming year, this will likely lead to a greater level of competition then we have seen in other years.

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.
