Notes:

Change in price is the change since the last report. Hay quoted is sourced and delivered locally, GST exclusive unless stated otherwise. It should be noted that local prices quoted may not be the cheapest available, sourcing it from another region may be more affordable, and buyers are encouraged to evaluate all options. Prices are indicative to a mid-range shedded product, and based on the best indication of market value at the time of reporting. It should be noted there is a wide variation in quality of hay, prices for a mid-range product will not reflect the weighted average of trade. Prices will naturally vary based on the product quantity and quality, buyer/seller relationship and the size of the trade.

The hay report has been commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of hay markets in each dairy region. This report is created using data provided by the Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA). It should be remembered that actual prices may vary for quality or other reasons. Whilst all reasonable steps have been taken to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this report, Dairy Australia disclaims all liability to the fullest extent permitted by Australian law for any inadvertent errors and for any losses or damages stemming from reliance upon its content. Dairy Australia recommends all persons seek independent advice and, where appropriate, advice from a qualified advisor before making any decisions about changes to business strategy. 

Commentary

  • There was some rain this week in the north of the region, with up to 10mm of rain recorded.
  • More rain would be ideal now for winter crops as they head into their last weeks of the growing season. Growers and contractors are preparing for the new hay season to start.
  • Next month will provide an indication of how much will be produced and what will be exported.
  • Local trade has slowed as paddock feed continues to improve. Many farmers are now waiting to see what the new season hay season will bring before committing to any more fodder purchases.
  • Exporters will only take a reduced amount of new season cereal hay and it will need to be a premium product.
  • No change to prices this week.
  • Cereal hay: +/-0 ($170 to $200/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Lucerne hay: +/-0 ($400 to $450/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Straw: +/-0 ($90 to $140/t). Prices remain steady this week.
  • Please note unless stated otherwise, prices are per tonne, sourced and delivered locally. The price range indicated is for feeds of varying quality with the price range generally indicative of quality of feed. We recommend feed testing and viewing of fodder before purchase to be sure of the quality of feed.
