Spread of buyers searching grain

Generally the grain market in Australia remains pretty active. End users were purchasing and searching for grain they could make work to cover further requirements, while exporters and traders were also active last week.

If buyers couldn't pay prices that growers were offering, they were often bidding against the parcel of grain with the price they could pay, which in most cases was well above best published bids. Some growers were matching those prices to get sales away, others were happy to hold at their target prices.

A number of growers appear to be adjusting price expectations on the grain they have left for sale given the fall in global and local values. Many were lowering their offer prices to levels they feel is fair value, which was also drawing interest from buyers.

There are plenty of buyers trying to buy Australian grain. 28 buyers purchased grain through Clear Grain Exchange last week, a higher number than recent weeks, more buyers were searching grain offered for sale.
