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.

 

Commentary

  • Wheat: Down $5 ($355 to $365/tonne). Barley: Steady ($285 to $295/tonne). Maize: Steady ($375 to $385/tonne). Sorghum: Up $20 ($345 to $355/tonne).
  • In Queensland, the weather has turned hot with temperatures already hitting 40C. Limited rain has been reported in most areas of the state and short-range forecasts suggest ongoing dry conditions.
  • Wheat markets have seen price volatility decrease in the past week despite harvest pressure from the east coast remaining strong. Protein and quality levels are coming in generally high with the majority of deliveries rated as H2 or better. However, screenings have been an issue in this region with the dry finish leading to AUH2 and HPS1 in the mix.
  • Barley prices have increased somewhat, following international market prices higher. Barley continues to take up most feed demand from wheat at current price levels.
  • China continues to be the main price driver for sorghum prices at the moment, with only intermittent demand from domestic feed users at the current values. Sorghum is considered expensive from a feed perspective given its price in comparison to wheat.
