The Farm Tender Hay Report – Volume 6

  • By: "Prime" Ag News
  • May 08, 2018

A premium for Hay out of the Riverina as prices rise across the board

  • Demand for Hay is still strong with the majority of enquiry coming out of NSW
  • Supply levels are dropping
  • Livestock Farmers, Dairy Farmers, and Feedlotters buying Hay have downgraded their expectations on quality by up to 20 percent in the last two weeks
  • Prices were up across the board by $5-$10 in Vic and SA
  • Prices were up across the board by $10-$20 in the Riverina where there is now limited stock available
  • Farmers and Feedlotters are preferring to take lower grade and old season Cereal Hay before they entertain Cereal Straw
  • Farmers that do produce Hay and run Livestock are more likely hold onto that Hay that was once earmarked for sale
  • Trucks are still hard to come by
  • If you are thinking of sowing an extra paddock for Hay production why not go two or three extra paddocks  

What you can do

  • If you are looking to sell or buy Hay, make sure you register with www.farmtender.com.au first
  • If you are a carrier and can cart Hay, there is plenty of work out there (register also)
  • If you have Hay to sell, please list or let us know
