Rain saves the day for some.
What's happened to Hay prices over the last fortnight?
We go around the grounds to see what our Farm Tender Sales people have to say:
Mike said - There has been a couple of spot loads of Hay moving between Western Victoria and South Australia but few and far between. A larger parcel of Oaten Hay sold to a Chaff Mill. 10 to 25 mm of rain fell across the Darling Downs and more further West. This has kept the crops ticking along. More is expected this weekend. The Crop is at varying stages depending on when the rain fell. Further West it seems to be a lot more advanced than the Eastern Darling Downs, where Crops are only 6 inches high. There are a few Windrowers and Balers starting to get ready in Northern New South Wales and Southern Queensland.
