With Harvest started in some areas it is fair to say the Oat crop this year will be much better than the previous two seasons. The soft finish to the growing year has been ideal in what has been one of the better or if not the best growing year for all commodities. Let’s hope the rain can hold off in November and December so we can get this harvest in the bin.
Growers that do deliver Oats please take the time to clean Trucks, Chaser bins and Headers when moving into your Oats. It will be valuable time spent as the spread from Milling 1 contract price to feed price could be upwards of $80 a tonne.
Any growers that are growing Oats that do not have contracts with us please understand we will be tight for storage space at all of our sites so call ahead before you do decide to deliver. For those that can store please keep a running sample so we can provide an ex farm price during 2021.
