Prices have remained supported over the last month, with one buyer of pre Christmas feed grains using higher than forecasted quantities. With some farms struggling to complete the cereal harvest until recently, and post harvest landwork occupying many others, buying grain from suppliers during October can be difficult. Sellers however can appear later in the month to compete for any quick movement business.
It is still a little early to comment on all domestic milling and malting samples, but as usual it appears that there is a variety of grades available for the market. We expect premiums to remain wide, but there is now some imported new crop wheat available, so we feel that sales should now be considered if one has a good idea of specification held on farm. Current premiums should probably not be ignored.
Most buyers are now well covered until January, so nearby opportunities are dwindling. Please therefore get any outstanding samples in so that you are best placed to secure the most appropriate outlets for your grain.
