Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $5 ($390 to $400/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($375 to $385/tonne). Maize: Up $10 ($475 to $485/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($445 to $455/tonne).
  • Little rain has fallen in the past week where it was needed. The absence of any rain on the forecast has seen more paddocks either cut for hay a or silage in NSW. The decision is not so clear cut in various Victorian areas that are lacking soil moisture right now.
  • The bulk is definitely there, and, without frost, there is still an economic comparison that could tip the scales either way depending on the price of each commodity and finishing rain.
  • Spot wheat prices are trading slightly firmer this week, but supply is thin.
  • Forward prices have taken a firmer tone due to increasing concerns about the overall crop size in the South East of the country.
  • Apart from parts of southern Victoria, which is trading slightly softer than last week, barley prices have taken a firmer tone this week.
  • From a production perspective barley is also the earlier crop to finish, so is more likely to be taken to grain than wheat in areas with good bulk, provided the frost holds off.

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.

This report has been commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of grain and hay markets in each dairying region. It should be remembered that actual prices may vary for quality or other reasons.
