Trades average $5/t above public bids in last 5 weeks

In the last 5 weeks Clear Grain Exchange has traded ~100,000t and averaged $5/t better than the best public bid (as collected by Profarmer). This equates to ~$500,000 of value! Hence the more volume on the exchange the more value at the farm gate.

Last week many trades were going through well above public bids across a number grades and locations highlights the benefit of being proactive and offering your grain at your price so buyers can bid on it.

Without the offer in CGX, trades at these values are unlikely to occur. By offering your grain it can create demand that may not have otherwise been realised!

The value of being proactive and engaging the market with your offer price is that buyers may have a willingness to pay more than what they advertise publicly.

Demand exists if you engage with your price

CBOT wheat futures in A$/t terms largely traded sideways last week yet buyers were able to make parcels of grain work with trades in excess of public bids in many locations. Feed barley values are holding if not lifting in many areas driven by continued export demand. Sorghum is slowly making its way into storage and interestingly a number of parcels of malt barley traded last week as buyers cover excess demand as needed.

In total 18 grades of 5 commodities traded across 12 port zones on Clear Grain Exchange last week. 55% of all grain traded was wheat (7 grades), 35% was barley (6 grades), 5% was sorghum (2 grades), 3% was canola (1 grade), and oats and chickpeas made up 1% each (1 grade each). The predominant grades traded were H2 wheat at 21% of all trades, followed by Feed barley (25%), ASW1 wheat (18%) and APW1 (10%). All other grades were 5% or less of all trades last week.
