HAY FORECAST

UPDATE – 22nd January 

Rains are here and have helped ease pricing to some extent. There still has not been any significant rains throughout the Lockyer Valley so creeks are not flowing and the water table is not being re-charged for farm pumping from bores.

Prime Lucerne is starting to get a little stalky as it grows faster and we are now seeing some second grade Lucerne. Local Grassy Lucerne and Grassy hays are also now available.

We continue to keep stock of Barley Hay which is a beardless variety suitable for guinea pigs.

GRASSY ROUND  BALES

We a few lower quality 4ft x 4ft bales in stock which are probably more suited to cows than horses, unless the horse has no access to any grazing. New grassy rounds will only get baled in the coming few months.

 

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.
