Grain prices lift early in the week before flattening

Australian grain prices managed to climb early in the week before plateauing. Many bids remained near traded values achieved on Monday throughout the week however it appeared growers were happy to target slightly higher levels after the early week lift which saw many grower targets met and grain sold.

Volumes trading continue to reflect the quality of this years crop with SFW1 wheat the major grade trading in the east and ASW1 wheat in the west. It's important to note however that most grades were finding demand and trading with 33 different grades of wheat, barley, canola, oats, lupins and peas trading across 16 port zones around Australia.

Grain prices traded continue to vary considerably between port zones, grades and compared to global values reflecting very localised supply and demand factors.

Don't be concerned if you can't see a bid on the exchange when you are offering grain for sale. Simply determine the price you want and offer it. Often you will never see a bid, just a trade as buyers jump in and purchase grain offered for sale rather than bidding against it. Buyers are looking at grain offered for sale.

Grain demand can often be hard to predict, if you have your grain on offer at least all buyers can see it and try to buy it - that's how you create demand for your grain.
