 HAY FORECAST

UPDATE - 13th JUNE

The drought situation in NSW, VIC and West QLD shows no sign of improving and this late in the season means little chance of recovery. Most of our hay designated for shedded / winter use is moving over the border and prices continue to rise and grass is becoming in short supply. A further effect has been the poor availability of Millrun (Bran and Pollard).

Grassy Lucerne is just about to run out at the farm but we do have some stock of shedded grassy hay. We continue to try to secure some further supplies for winter but quality will be low as older vacant blocks are mowed instead of grass from old lucerne paddocks.

Barley will not get baled until late July as usual, but we still have stock of last season Barley Hay and hope this sees us through until the new crop is cut.

 

GRASSY ROUND  BALES

We have fresh grassy round bales and hope to store enough to see us through winter.

 

 

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.
