Buyers actively bidding for grain

Buyers continued to be active in trying to secure Australian grain last week. Despite the shortened week with a national public holiday on Thursday and Melbourne having a public holiday on Friday, 34 different buyer businesses purchased grain through Clear Grain Exchange last week, with more searching for grain offered for sale.

Some nervousness over the flow of grain out of the Black Sea, the fact global wheat consumption will exceed production again this year, more rain through the eastern states of Australia, and new crop harvest approaching, may all be triggers seeing buyers of Australian grain getting more active recently.

This saw traded prices lift week on week and many growers achieving their price targets.

Prices traded continue to be much stronger than those indicated by published bids on other electronic platforms and bid sheets.
