Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $5 ($270 to $280/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($195 to $205/tonne). Maize: Steady ($490 to $500/tonne). Oats: Steady ($375 to $385/tonne).
  • Forecast rain will help finish crops, as dry conditions have already started to impact yield potential.
  • Spot wheat and barley prices have increased over the week, as buyers try to balance stock on hand until harvest.
  • Forward wheat prices have lost a little ground, as the large national crop is pressuring prices. Weakness in Chicago wheat futures can also be attributed to this softening in price.
  • Forwards barley pricing has remained flat, appearing to have found a new floor.

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.
