Barley jumps $30-40/t

Australian barley prices led the charge higher at the end of last week after China announced the removal of their tariffs on Australian barley imports. Market commentators were quoting the Chinese market at a $30-40/t premium over prices Australian barley had been trading into other parts of the world, and that appeared to come to fruition very quickly after the announcement. 30 buyers bought barley on Clear Grain Exchange (CGX) last week, with 25 buyers actively purchasing feed and malt barley on Friday. Prices improved significantly with feed barley in WA increasing by $27/t in the Kwinana port zone from $306/t on Thursday to $333/t on Friday, whilst in the Melbourne zone prices improved $40/t for the week. On Friday buyer activity was particularly strong with 115,000t of barley trading on CGX. Offer prices were trading up to higher bids as buyers were scrambling to outbid each other and secure grain. The positive tone in prices extended across other commodities through last week as buyers remained active in securing Australian grain as uncertainty remains in other major exporting countries around the world. 23 buyers purchased 16 grades of wheat through CGX last week with more searching for grain offered for sale across QLD, NSW, VIC, SA and WA. Canola, oats, chickpeas and peas were also attracting interest with buyers matching grower target prices to get hold of the grain. Feed barley stored on farm was also trading through the igrain market last week as buyers actively sought out barley offers listed for sale. BAR1, BAR2 and BAR3 barley equivalent grades traded throughout NSW on an ex-farm basis. APW1 multigrade wheat contracts, along with oats and lupins offered for sale on igrain were also finding buyers to match the sellers expectations on an ex-farm basis. Demand remains robust across Australia for all grades and commodities. If you have a price in mind be sure to offer your grain for sale on CGX or igrain so all buyers can see it and try to buy it.
