Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Steady ($365 to $375/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($325 to $335/tonne). Maize: Steady ($445 to $455/tonne). Sorghum: Up $5 ($410 to $420/tonne).
  • With the harvest period well and truly over for this year wheat prices continue to move sideways, with the sell side of this market (in terms of locally based sellers) remaining very scarce.
  • With barley having been trading at quite a discount to wheat in a number of locations, some demand has shifted to barley.
  • In turn, this has seen barley prices close some of the gap to wheat.
  • Sorghum has also continued to firm, with recent price increases seeing some demand shift into other grains.
  • Rainfall over the past week has not been enough to boost the production prospects of this year’s summer crop, with the lack of supply of sorghum looming as a serious issue for the coming season.

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.
