Bids fall at end of week


Published bids of many grain prices across Australia dropped significantly at the back end of last week.



Continued talk of softening global prices and domestic users having some coverage is maintaining a patient and cautious stance by buyers.



The market has lacked significant new information for some time to spark a new price direction. Will the northern hemisphere spring bring some fresh news?



Winter wheat crops are coming out of dormancy and spring crops such as higher protein spring wheat, corn, soybeans, barley, pulses and oats are still to be planted.



The market will start to watch weather forecasts in earnest through the coming months as it will define northern hemisphere crop production.



At this stage grower offer prices have been reluctant to follow bids lower, possibly hopeful of some uncertainty to eventuate during the northern hemisphere spring.



Growers may also be trying to figure out price spreads across port zones which remain significant.



One thing is for sure, if your grain is not on OFFER at the price you want, it can't sell. Buyers need to see it to crunch their numbers and try to buy it.



The charts below show the power of growers offering their grain for sale to create demand, with grain regularly trading at better prices than published bids indicate.



28 buyers purchased 27 grades of wheat, barley, canola, faba beans, lupins and oats on CGX last week, with more buyers searching grain offered for sale. igrain is also trading ex-farm grain.
