Farm Tender Hay Report - Volume 2

Slight increase in prices for protein Hay
It’s been a very busy fortnight on the Hay front. Just like the fortnight before, 90 percent of the Hay sold on Farm Tender is heading from South to North.

Queensland got some well-earned relief with a nice dumping of rain which virtually covered the whole state; this will slow the demand down for Queensland. However, areas outside Queensland remain dry, and this is where the demand is with NSW leading the charge

Currently, we virtually have two seasons worth of Hay with the older season Hay being of lesser quality than the new season Hay. It's good to see stock being cleared, but right now it has only seen a slight increase in the price of protein Hay

Vetch hay leads the way for volumes sold, with daylight second. We have demand for good 20/10/40 Hay that is shedded and with good bale weights

Many Dairy Farmers in NSW are replacing Lucerne Hay with Vetch Hay, hence the demand for Vetch.
