Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $10 ($335 to $345/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($290 to $300/tonne). Triticale: Steady ($385 to $395/tonne). Oats: Steady ($390 to $400/tonne).
  • Following Western Australia’s dry finish to the season, production estimates for the state have dropped recently.
  • Grower selling has remained slow, as a result of those with grain holding on in the hope of seeing firmer feed grain prices. In recent weeks feed barley prices have moved upwards significantly, however remain at a significant discount to wheat values.
  • These low prices in comparison to wheat are unlikely to induce any significant grower selling in the future.
  • Similar to barley prices, wheat markets in Western Australia have firmed and have not seen the harvest pressure seen in previous seasons.

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.
