Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $5 ($285 to $295/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($250 to $260/tonne). Maize: Steady ($475 to $485/tonne). Oats: Steady ($395 to $405/tonne).
  • Harvest in SA is also near completion, although some areas such as the south East still have a bit to go.
  • Wheat prices have been steady to a touch firmer and sellers have generally been looking to engage with wheat markets first, or as one of the first crops they will sell.
  • Barley prices have also been a touch firmer. Whilst sellers have been slow to engage with this market buyers have also been reluctant to engage, with some appetite for smaller parcels currently out there.

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.
