Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $5 ($470 to $480/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($570 to $580/tonne). Maize: Steady ($585 to $595/tonne). Sorghum: Up $15 ($410 to $420/tonne).
  • Queensland and Nth NSW sorghum growing belt will receive solid rainfall this week, helping to boost crop growth. Although there is limited export demand for sorghum, with all the sorghum that is being sold at the moment going into domestic homes, there may be an increase in export demand should we see some further weakness in local sorghum values.
  • Prices of wheat and barley continue to be at or slightly below Western Australian import parity, thus leading to small amounts of grower selling.

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.
