Grain commentary

  • Wheat: Up $5 ($360 to $370/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($310 to $320/tonne). Maize: Steady ($505 to $515/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($415 to $425/tonne).
  • Wheat prices have continued to move higher. Domestic buyers still in the market are having to keep the prices up in order to secure purchases.
  • Barley prices have been unable to keep up with wheat, which has seen the spread between the two further widen. This is expected to see some demand come back to feed barley, but this demand is not expected to be for large parcels.
  • Lower fuel (and subsequently transport) costs have opened the possibility of feed barley moving north.

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.
