 HAY FORECAST

UPDATE - 16th May

As anticipated, lucerne supplies in NSW, VIC and West QLD are very low and some of our home grown lucerne is heading south. This has seen the lucerne price move up a $1 / bale in the last week, and we expect further rises as we enter winter. The shortages elsewhere will also mean lower supplies of shedded hay so the prospects for the coming months are not great. Naturally, these higher prices also pass on to chaff.

Grass has pretty much stopped growing after the recent cold snap and Grassy Lucerne is now 50%/50% grass/lucerne. We have some stock of shedded grassy hay and will try to secure some further supplies for winter.

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.
