 HAY FORECAST

UPDATE - 10th May

We are still currently able to course Grassy Lucerne but full Grassy Hay is not available or very poor quality. We are hoping to get some Grassy bales in next week

Lucerne grows all year round so we do not anticipate shortages but the market is still affected by demand from drought areas inter-state and next to no hay shedded for the winter. Pricing for Lucerne is predicted to be very high during winter.

New season Barley hay will not be baled until July at the earliest.

 

GRASSY ROUND  BALES

The recent rain is helping bring the grass along and greening up existing growth. Our suppliers are still reluctant to cut and bale until they have more volume so we may not see most of the round bale baling done until May, but at least this will ensure some supply for winter.

 

Chaff Prices

Higher lucerne prices have now been applied to prime chaff and mixes. The new stock has hit the shop floor so we have reluctantly been obliged to pass these increases on. The good news is that our chaffing contractor has bought stock to see us through winter so pricing should be stable from now on, until new crops come in next summer.

 

We source all our hay from local farmers with whom we have established long relationships. We collect direct from the farm several times per week and our aim is maintain a reliable stock of fresh feed all year, even when supply is short.

Our chaff is locally cut and bagged specifically for Brendale Produce using high temperature steam treatment to maintain freshness, ensuring it is always to our standards.

We primarily stock several grades of lucerne as well as grassy and barley hay in standard square, small round and large round bales. The table below shows bale types currently supplied by farmers in our region. Actual availability is seasonal.
