Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $5 ($300 to $310/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($255 to $265/tonne). Triticale: Steady ($365 to $375/tonne). Oats: Steady ($380 to $390/tonne).
  • Harvest in WA has also progressed faster than usual. With the northern grain growing areas of the state finished and the other grain growing areas looking like they will be finished in the coming fortnight.
  • Wheat prices have firmed with a portion of the offshore support seen over flowing into local prices.
  • This market is currently more of a sellers one, than a buyers one.
  • Feed barley prices have also firmed over the past week, with yields in southern growing areas generally having come in below expectations.
  • However, with barley prices still well behind wheat (in terms of both actual prices relative value) there has been less of a sell side to feed barley markets.

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.
