Get full value for your grain

As harvest nears completion and we head into the holiday period, growers are finalising deliveries against forward contracts they already have on the books, considering how much they need to sell in the near term, and what they are comfortable holding.


When delivering against forward multigrade grain contracts, ensure you transfer the highest quality against the contract/s with the highest premiums and lowest quality against the contract/s with the lowest discounts, regardless of the underlying price of the contract. This will ensure you get the highest average price.


For those looking to sell more now, remember typically the premiums for higher quality food grades, and discounts for lower grades, are widest during harvest and narrow through the year which implies focussing on offering high quality grain for sale now.


For those with off-spec and lower grades of grain, remember Australia does not produce enough feed grain for it's domestic use let alone the growing offshore feed grain demand. So don't panic, as an example typically lower grades of wheat will trade at ASW1 values at some stage after harvest.


Whatever grade you have and where ever you are, remember; there are plenty of buyers that want your grain.


Your job is to make it as easy as possible for ALL BUYERS to try and buy your grain - that's how you will achieve it's full value.


The easiest way to do that, in our view, is to offer it for sale at the price you want on an INDEPENDENT and SECURE grain exchange. 


You can't run an exchange if you have a potential conflict of interest. Clear Grain Exchange is not a buyer, seller, or advisor of grain. We take no view on price and have no potential for bias. This is critical to operating an independent exchange to achieve the true price for grain.


Our whole intent is to get as many buyers as possible trying to buy Australian grain from growers.


It's FREE to have a CGX account, it's FREE to have your grain offered for sale, we only charge $1.20/t if your grain trades and we always say you should factor that into your price.


If you use CGX correctly, it can only ADD VALUE to your business.


If you have grain in warehouse - you should have it offered for sale on CGX, no matter what grade it is or where it is - why wouldn't you?


If you have grain stored on farm - you should have it offered for sale on igrain!


We wish all farmers and those involved in the grain supply chain a safe and merry Christmas. Thank you for working with CGX. We feel the industry is always better understanding who we are and how to get value out of the exchange.
