HAY FORECAST

HAY FORECAST

UPDATE – 11th October

Things have been steady for some while now but with a wetter than usual forecast things may be looking good for next year.

Lucerne is still the only hay being grown right now and production is slowly ramping up with the warmer weather. Farmers are still relying on bore water so a wet summer is an absolutely necessity or we will be in real trouble. Sheds are largely full of Barley hay which had a good harvest this winter, and we also secured some Oaten hay which should be available for a while to come.

Once we get some rain we can expect grassy lucerne after around 3-4 weeks and Grassy a few weeks more.

Local shedded Grassy hay has been very disappointing this year and we have been bring Grassy hay small square bales from North Queensland. We should be able to continue this supply until local grass is available.

GRASSY ROUND  BALES

We have a reliable supply of good quality 4ft x 4ft round bales at $140 each which we expect to to keep us stocked until the end of the year.

 

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.
