Barley makes up majority of grain sold

Barley grades made up the majority of grain sold through Clear Grain Exchange last week. The grades traded are reflective of the harvest getting underway in more areas and both malt and feed barley making up a higher proportion of early deliveries. ASW1 wheat continued to trade in the west as growers looked to get more cover there. Generally trades was scattered across grades and locations around Australia as buyers were patient and lowering price expectations as the harvest builds. Selling into cash bids as trucks deliver grain can also weigh on prices given buyers can be patient accumulating grain. The pace of grower sales and the method of those sales may put further downward pressure on harvest prices if buyers can purchase grain they need at cash bids. For growers that are harvesting and delivering grain into warehouse, remember you can offer grain for sale at a price rather than accepting the bids on the cash boards. You can also offer grain for sale that you know you will deliver during the harvest months or for delivery in July. Australian grain prices do not need to get cheaper to remain competitive into international markets and there is a lot of grain that still needs to be bought for export and domestic use. Offer your grain for sale at the price you think is fair to all buyers on an independent and secure exchange and have some control of the price you receive this harvest. Clear Grain Exchange is not a buyer, seller or advisor of grain which is important because it means there is no potential bias in operating the exchange. Our aim is to get as many buyers as possible to buy your grain. You're anonymous and retain title of your grain until you're paid, and you can edit or cancel your offer at anytime before it sells. There is often better value available than what is indicated by published cash and contracts bids. See below example of traded values for ASW1 in Kwinana versus published bids as collected by independent analyst Profarmer.
