Grain commentary

  • Wheat: Steady ($295 to $305/tonne). Barley: Down $10 ($285 to $295/tonne). Maize: Steady ($480 to $490/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($305 to $315/tonne).
  • Most wheat growing regions have received good rainfall over the past week, but more rain is needed to ensure good soil moisture is present to see out the crop. It would seem most of the state has either received too much rain, or too little.
  • Old crop wheat prices have remained stable over the past week, with most pricing variations being driven by differing trader bids and storage provider costs.
  • Growers appear hesitant to lock in any forward sales due to seasonal production risks.
  • Old crop barley prices remain steady, while new crop barley is in the same scenario as wheat in terms of production risk.


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.
