Hay Commentary

  • It has been a wet week in north coast NSW with Lismore recording 36mm over the week and Grafton recording 33mm.
  • The Government has announced subsidies for transport of fodder, moving livestock and water infrastructure to support eligible farmers in NSW affected by drought. This can be backdated to 1st January 2018. For more information and to apply please visit www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/climate-and-emergancies/droughthub.
  • There are a lot of cereal crops that are ready to be made into hay that are being turned into silage as the weather is not permitting for hay making. There is some Rhodes grass ready to be baled that is waiting for sunny weather.
  • Demand has eased from its peak but is still strong from the Tablelands. New season supply is in the market.
  • There are no price changes noted this week.
  • Cereal hay: +/-0 ($450 to $600/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($500 to $750/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($250 to $350/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Pasture hay: +/-0 ($350 to $450/t). Prices remain steady this week.

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.
