Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Down $10 ($280 to $290/tonne). Barley: Down $10 ($295 to $305/tonne). Triticale: Down $10 ($370 to $380/tonne). Oats: Up $10 ($400 to $410/tonne).
  • After a dry start to the planting season, Western Australia received good rainfall across most of the state.
  • Esperance missed out on this rainfall, but most of the region saw some rain during May which was enough to see crops germinate or emerge.
  • This season there is expected to be a record low area of wheat planted in WA, while barley planted area is expected to be the largest on record.

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.
