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: Down $20 ($390 to $400/tonne). Barley: Down $5 ($330 to $340/tonne). Maize: Down $30 ($355 to $365/tonne). Canola Meal: Up $30 ($485 to $495/tonne).
- The harvest has started to ramp up this week before unfavourable weather, which arrived on Wednesday, brought things to a standstill.
- Wheat prices eased somewhat this week as international market prices remain steady and the domestic market processes a potential access issues to China.
- Barley prices have decreased slightly this week as harvest pressure starts to mount.
- Canola prices are still elevated due to the overall strong oilseed complex. As the harvest is only just starting, there is not any significant selling pressure at the moment.
