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.
- Wheat: Steady ($320 to $330/tonne). Barley: Steady ($260 to $270/tonne). Triticale: Up $5 ($270 to $280/tonne). Oats: Steady ($280 to $290/tonne).
- Weather forecasts suggest next week will be a dry and warm one in Western Australia. Currently the crop quality is holding up and yields are better than expected.
- Wheat prices have eased marginally this week as harvest selling begins to impact prices.
- Barley prices have increased this week as traders are willing to buy products around the $270/t FIS level for feed barley.
- Oats prices have also increased this week, with $300/t FIS prices being offered across the Kwinana and Albany port zones. The latest GIWA estimates suggest the Western Australian crop at around 550k. If realised, this would be a 150,000t increase from last season.
