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.

 

Grain Commentary

Wheat: Down $10 ($325 to $335/tonne). Barley: Steady ($240 to $250/tonne). Maize: Down $10 ($495 to $505/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($415 to $425/tonne).

A drop in offshore wheat futures values and an increase in the AUD softened wheat markets this week. The discount of spot barley in comparison to spot wheat is still very large, which is seeing some demand move from wheat and some downwards pressure on prices.

Grower selling for barley remains limited, however there has been a slight increase in grower engagement in these markets over the last week.

It is expected that low export demand, given tariffs on Australian barley from China, and favourable crop conditions will see a large excess of barley over the next season. Growers remain reluctant to sell barley, however, at current levels.
