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 ($315 to $325/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($215 to $225/tonne). Triticale: Down $10 ($385 to $395/tonne). Oats: Steady ($385 to $395/tonne).

Planting is all but completed in Western Australia, with some unseasonable warm weather allowing crops to establish themselves. Rainfall is forecast across most of the state later this week, which could see softer prices over the next week if they eventuate. Further rainfall is desperately needed, however, in some areas following this weather to keep crops going.

Forward markets in the west were relatively unchanged this week, with low grower engagement supporting values despite a fall of approximately $10/t in CBOT wheat values in Australian dollar terms.
