The hay and grain reports are commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of hay and grain markets in each region.
Reports are updated 40 weeks per year and can be used by farmers to inform their purchase decisions or audit past decisions.
Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in the region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley. Hay prices are based on shedded hay without water damage, of good quality and colour. There is a wide variation in quality for hay, so prices are indicative of a mid-range product.
Prices include allowances for freight, storage and marketing costs, but exclusive of GST.
