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.
- Wheat: Up $5 ($255 to $265/tonne). Barley: Steady ($210 to $220/tonne). Maize: Steady ($355 to $365/tonne). Sorghum: Up $5 ($270 to $280/tonne).
- Weather conditions have remained warm and dry over the past week, with any rain limited to isolated storms.
- Local New South Wales wheat prices remained relatively stable this week. There are reports of minimal demand originating from the feed industry, however, overall demand is reduced.
- Barley pries rose this week, as offshore demand continues to increase. Locally, there are reports of low levels of barley in stores and demand is gathering from the feed industry, contributing to the rising prices.
- Sorghum values continue to rise, with dry conditions and slow grower selling. Whilst there is on-going demand from China for sorghum, early sorghum harvest has resumed with most crops looking for further rainfall.
