Milling wheat & malt trade premiums

Last week saw a continuation of the themes of recent weeks. Trade activity is sporadic and hard to predict with buyers generally taking a patient approach to buying given confidence is building in Australia's production prospects.

International grain markets are also hard to read. CBOT wheat continues to trade in a wide sideways range for the time being as everyone tries to get a handle on global supply and demand.

The northern hemisphere harvest is currently supplying global demand, but the crop's not big in many areas except Russia, and supply out of that area remains a moving viewpoint.

On the demand side everyone remains watchful of China and whether their COVID restrictions will have an impact on their purchases.

Locally this has meant buyer behaviour has generally opted for a "wait and see" approach. That is, they're not chasing grain yet unless they need it, at which time they'll jump in and bid well above published bids in most cases to try and purchase the grain.

25 different buyers purchased wheat, barley, canola, oats, lupins and chickpeas across NSW, VIC, SA and WA last week, with more searching grain offered for sale. Hence the buyer interest remains, the price point appears to be the query.

APW1 wheat traded $405/t Melbourne and $352/t Newcastle last week. ASW1 traded $405/t in Port Adelaide, $379/t Pt Kembla, $361/t Melbourne, and $355/t Kwinana. Higher protein grades continue to attract premiums with H2 making $430/t in Melbourne as an example. Stock feed wheat made $387/t Pt Adelaide, $355/t Geelong and $329/t Pt Kembla.

Feed barley traded $324/t Melbourne and $295/t Kwinana. Malt grades continue to attract serious premiums with latrobe, planet and spartacus all trading $420 in Pt Kembla, but also trading in the $350's per tonne through Victoria.

Canola, oats, chickpeas and lupins also all traded across the country indicating the breadth of demand across grades, commodities and locations.
