Grain reacting to Ukraine events

Grain markets continued to react to the unfortunate events occurring in the Ukraine. CBOT wheat futures closed limit up in many sessions through last week as the market tries to get a handle on the impact to global grain supply and demand.

This has flowed through to demand for Australian grain rising to extreme levels as buyers have pushed up prices to try and secure grain.

Many growers have seen their target prices reached and have been selling grain held in warehouse on the back of the lift in values. Many are also actively adjusting their offer price targets as they monitor the evolving situation and/or are happy to stand aside from the market while they adjust their price expectations.

49 different buyers bought grain through Clear Grain Exchange just last week with more searching for grain listed for sale - and the demand is for everything - all grades, in all locations.

Many growers were selling above their offer price on the exchange last week as buyers were actively out bidding each other to secure grain listed for sale ahead of market open.

You're in control of your offer price and tonnage for sale and can edit it at any time before it sells. Your grain can not sell lower than your offer price, however can sell higher if buyers are out bidding each other ahead of market open.

There are often many more buyers than you may realise that want your grain. Offer it for sale to all buyers on CGX.
