Dairy Australia’s January Hay and Grain Reports shows feed prices have firmed in nearly all regions, with demand from fire affected regions adding to ongoing demand from the prevailing drought in many areas.

Cereal hay prices increased across the country, with cheaper pricing in Tasmania experiencing the largest increase (+$75/tonne) followed by Goulburn/Murray Valley (+$60/tonne), while Central West NSW remained steady. Grain markets had more moderate gains, with wheat prices increasing up to $10/tonne and barley prices increasing up to $20/tonne across the country.
