Buyers encourage to act now to secure quality. Logistical and production issues have remained with continued rain throughout the past month, more forecasted to come. First cut Lucerne looking great, likely to be good value with continuation of favourable seasonal conditions. Despite favourable grazing conditions buyers are in the market.

National Hay Market Report June 2021
KEY POINTS Mice continue to run rampant in NSW and other regions. There has been some increased demand for hay in Victoria & South Australia. Demand remains low for hay into Backgrounding, Dairies throughout the majority of NSW and southern QLD. However, a market for protein hay is proving reasonably strong. Protein hays & high-quality Vetch is hard to find, however, quality Lucerne is still available. Cattle herds continue to grow, although a long road ahead remains for herd rebuilding nationwide. Some Beef Producers are taking advantage of the high cattle prices and opting to sell their herd instead of supplementary feeding. Prices paid for cattle continue to put a squeeze on feeding margins. The hay buyers that are in the market are looking for quality and quality only.
