Grain commentary

  • June rainfall: 23 mm (Avg: 38.1 mm)
  • Rainfall year to date: 68.1 mm (Avg: 223.4 mm)
  • Wheat: +$5 ($335 to $345/tonne). Rain over the past few weeks has improved Victorian crop conditions. More growers are now selling crop but still nothing significant. The drought in NSW is keeping prices very firm.
  • Barley: +$10 ($330 to $340/tonne). Barley has been trading at a tight spread from wheat for a while now and this is likely to continue for the foreseeable future given the tight supply situation.
  • Corn: +$15 ($365 to $375/tonne).
  • Canola Meal: +$5 ($440 to $450/tonne). Canola meal prices firmed slightly this week. Even at levels the scarcity of available product means that getting a hold of it is going to continue to get more and more difficult.


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.
