Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $10 ($395 to $405/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($350 to $360/tonne). Maize: Steady ($455 to $465/tonne). Sorghum: Steady ($445 to $455/tonne).
  • Varying amounts of rainfall were seen across these areas last week. With further rainfall forecast for the coming week, some growers are considering some late season sorghum planting but are concerned about lack of soil moisture and potential production risks.
  • Barley prices have firmed even though rain will provide the potential of increased fodder production.
  • Grain continues to be priced off West Australian and South Australian ports.
  • Slow grower selling in the southern states has caused up country storage sites to fill any prompt sale requirements.

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.
