  • Demand has eased from its peak with new season supply coming into the market.
  • Lucerne prices have firmed this week.
  • Cereal hay: +/-0 ($300 to $400/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +100 ($500 to $600/t). Prices have firmed this week.

  • Pasture hay: +/-0 ($300 to $400/t). Prices remain steady this week.

Notes:

Change in price is the change since the last report. Hay prices are delivered, GST exclusive, based on shedded hay without weather damage, of good quality and colour. It should be noted there is a wide variation in quality for hay, so prices are indicative for a mid-range product.

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.
