- Reports of better than expected yields and quality continue to come out of Western Australia. Weather for the past week has been clear, most northern growing areas may begin to wind down in the coming week, whilst southern areas are beginning to ramp up their harvest.
- Harvest is estimated to be two thirds complete, with little to no rain forecast for WA in the coming week possibly leading to solid harvest progress. Western Australia will produce over 50% of this year’s crop, and a large portion of this crop will be suitable for feed.
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.
