Record number of buyers

53 different buyer businesses purchased grain offered for sale through Clear Grain Exchange (CGX) just last week with more searching the exchange for grain.



It's a new record number of buyers purchasing grain through CGX within a single week, eclipsing the previous record of 49 in February 2022.



This is good news for growers for two reasons. The first is it further confirms the improved buyer appetite for Australian grain in recent weeks which has led to price improvements.



The second is it affirms that by growers OFFERING grain for sale at a price they want on an INDEPENDENT exchange where ALL BUYERS can try and buy the grain, it attracts more buyers into the Australian market and creates demand for grain.



Growers offering their grain for sale are encouraging more buyers to try and buy their grain! 😊



That's a good thing because it's yielding better prices than what growers may have thought their grain was worth via published bids (see charts below).



Plus growers are protected at all times on CGX by remaining completely anonymous and retaining title of their grain until paid with CGX's secure settlement.



Last week grain prices for most grades and commodities were stable to stronger as buyers continued to engage in trying to match grower offer prices.



Price movements varied considerably between grades and growers were taking advantage of the recent increase in appetite and values to sell some grain.



Barley and canola prices lifted week on week in the eastern states which helped to narrow the wider than normal price spreads between the east and west locations.



Some malt barley grades traded at higher prices week-on-week in a number of locations, maintaining premiums to feed in many instances. Spartacus in WA increased $10/t week-on-week as an example.



Noodle wheat was attracting strong premiums to APW1 in the west with ANW1 trading at prices above H1 as supply tightens versus demand.



Growers are impacting demand and prices directly by having a say in the price of their grain and actively offering their grain for sale at the price they will sell it for.



This enables ALL BUYERS to see the grade, location, volume and sell price so they know what price they need to be at to buy volume when they need it. By offering grain for sale it helps buyers stay interested in your unsold grain.
