Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $5 ($365 to $375/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($345 to $355/tonne). Maize: Steady ($485 to $495/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($420 to $430/tonne).
  • Harvest has ended in Victoria, except some small pockets of the Western Districts which are in the final stages.
  • Barley selection rates have been very good, with up to 50% reaching malt specifications and a large amount of the wheat crop is expected to be APW1/ASW1 quality.
  • Similarly, to northern areas, grower selling remains slow in Victoria despite the historically firm prices on offer.
  • High domestic demand coupled with offshore support has seen wheat values firm recently, with barley values following the movements in wheat price upwards.

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.
