Grain offers keenly sought after

14 buyers bought grain through CGX last week with more searching for any grain on offer.

This often resulted in either grain trading or strong firm bids against grain parcels on offer, well in excess of any public bids.

If there was a strong firm bid against offers, growers could decide whether to adjust their offer price and sell at the strong firm bid. Or wait in expectation that the bid will eventually match their offer.

Either way the firm offer has done it's job in attracting the best "real" bid for the grain.

Tonnes traded on CGX have averaged 5.64/t above the best public bid on the day (both cash and contract bids) for the same grade and location this season, as collected by leading independent market analyst Profarmer.

See below examples of trades last week versus the best "public" bid (provided by Profarmer).

Wheat made up 43% of all tonnes traded last week, canola 33% and barley 5%.

No matter what grain you have, if you have a price in mind you would sell it for, offer it on the exchange so buyers can see it, crunch their numbers, and try and make it work. You are protected by anonymity and secure settlement so no price is a silly price!

About Clear Grain Exchange

Clear Grain Exchange is an independent online platform where grain sellers can offer their grain, at their price, in an open market to all buyers. If the grain trades, a secure settlement process ensures sellers don't lose title until they're paid, within 7 days. Grain buyers benefit from more efficient accumulation given they are able to view parcels of grain ready for sale in a firm and live market. The exchange also ensures a robust paper trail of all orders and transactions. At time of settlement, appropriate levies, end point royalties, and any applicable fees associated with the storage provider are deducted, cutting down the paperwork into one simple transaction. Our aim is to foster competition at the farm gate and ultimately improve returns by creating an efficient market where all supply chain participants benefit. Think of Clear Grain Exchange as the share market for Australian Grain.
