Notes:

Change in price is the change since the last report. Hay quoted is sourced and delivered locally, GST exclusive unless stated otherwise. It should be noted that local prices quoted may not be the cheapest available, sourcing it from another region may be more affordable, and buyers are encouraged to evaluate all options. Prices are indicative to a mid-range shedded product, and based on the best indication of market value at the time of reporting. It should be noted there is a wide variation in quality of hay, prices for a mid-range product will not reflect the weighted average of trade. Prices will naturally vary based on the product quantity and quality, buyer/seller relationship and the size of the trade.

This report has been commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of grain and hay markets in each dairy 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, Dairy Australia disclaims all liability to the fullest extent permitted by Australian law for any inadvertent errors and for any losses or damages stemming from reliance upon its content. Dairy Australia recommends all persons seek independent advice and, where appropriate, advice from a qualified advisor before making any decisions about changes to business strategy.

Dairy Australia generates a hay report to help farmers make more informed decisions when buying hay. The hay report is updated 40 times per year and provides an independent and timely assessment of hay markets in each dairy region.

This report summarises the hay market for South Australia's central region.

Commentary

  • Hot and dry conditions prevailed again this week in central South Australia.
  • Pastoral areas in the region are looking poor with the region in need of some decent rainfall.
  • Demand is holding firm in central South Australia largely coming from outside the region. New season cereal hay is moving fast. A lot of hay is moving from the region to the northern states, particularly Northern Territory and Queensland.
  • The price of lucerne is being sourced from outside the region.
  • Straw prices have firmed this week.
  • Cereal hay: +/-0 ($300 to $350/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($570 to $650/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Straw: +15 ($140 to $200/t). Prices have firmed this week.
  • Please note unless stated otherwise, prices are per tonne, sourced and delivered locally. The price range indicated is for feeds of varying quality with the price range generally indicative of quality of feed. We recommend feed testing and viewing of fodder before purchase to be sure of the quality of feed.
