Straw price meets floor as demand comes with wet weather

Straw prices seem to be finding a floor and while the wet weather is having a serious effect on harvest progress, it does seem to have helped in the development of a bottom price being paid.Beef protests haven’t helped movements as farmers wait in
'Straw prices seem to be finding a floor and while the wet weather is having a serious effect on harvest progress, it does seem to have helped in the development of a bottom price being paid.Following opening quotes of €18-20/bale (4X4), straw was slow to move and it was hard to get a price on what was moving.Beef protests haven’t helped movements as farmers wait in uncertainty of their stock requirements for the coming season.Other farmers held out in the hope that price would drop as straw yields from winter barley crops looked good.Those yields did look good, but weather has now prevented a significant amount of this straw for being baled.Other farmers opted to turn on the chopper as straw price did not outweigh the benefits of incorporating the straw back into the ground.A wet week ahead means that uncertainty surrounds the ease of picking up straw from winter and spring crops.Strong demand might come yet.In the meantime, the figures that AgriLand has come across in recent days are outlined below.Straw price According to prices reported to AgriLand , the straw market hit its lowest last week in the Athy area of Co.Kildare and in parts of Co.Wexford.However, this floor has since settled slightly higher and looks to be approximately €12/bale this week – for winter barley straw.In Munster, the price looks to be higher at €15/bale for 4X4 bales of barley straw, while straw is available for €18/bale in Co.Waterford where delivered locally.Some farmers in Co.Waterford are still holding our for €20/bale.In Connacht, prices for 4X4 winter barley straw are ranging from €13/bale to €25/bale.Delivery is included in some of these reports. .

Wet weather impacting harvest progress

Weather Agriland.ie

The wet weather of the past few days has put a complete stop to harvest progress.Large amounts of rainfall will no doubt have a big impact on quality and ease of cutting as time moves on.Crops which were almost ripe now face an unsettled week.
'The wet weather of the past few days has put a complete stop to harvest progress.Large amounts of rainfall will no doubt have a big impact on quality and ease of cutting as time moves on.Crops which were almost ripe now face an unsettled week.Some will be at risk of breakdown and more at risk of sprouting.That dreaded germination test on malting barley will also be a worry, but hopefully the weather turns before crops advance to these stages.At present, Thursday and Friday, August 16 and 17, look like possible harvesting days, while the weekend looks unsettled, according to Met Éireann.Up to now, quality was looking good and farmers have been happy with spring yields.Protein contents in malting barley crops were also low – a sign of the weather of the season gone by and of the conscious decision people made to cut nitrogen application and meet malting specs in the spring time when price looked like it might justify the reduction.Rainfall levels Looking at some of the weather stations across the tillage region, Casement Aerodrome received the least amount of rainfall at 31.8mm over a four-day period from August 8 to August 11.Cork Airport received the highest amount of rainfall of the stations listed at 55mm.Data source: Met Éireann Straw Straw will be another issue.Those lucky enough to cut in the short window of Wednesday night and Thursday, August 7 and 8, of last week – before the rain – did not all get their straw baled.If wet weather persists straw will become more difficult to save.This may help to move what is on the ground.So far a number of factors have slowed straw movement in parts of the country.Some farmers have been holding off waiting for a price drop.Many tillage farmers have turned on the chopper where they have not been offered a fair price.Other beef farmers have also held off on buying straw as they await the outcome of the beef talks this week. .

'AFTER yesterday brightening up and bringing some nice sunny weather, this week sees a return to the showery unsettled weather we have become accustomed to lately.Today will start dry with good sunny spells.However, this afternoon will bring scattered showers some could turn heavy and a small risk of thundery downpours by evening.It will be cooler than yesterday with temperatures of 17 to 18 degrees.By Tuesday morning the showers will have settled in and the day will be pretty wet and temperatures hovering just in the high teens, and Wednesday this pattern is set to remain, showery with a few dry spells.It will get quite muggy as temperatures could break 20 degrees.Thursday looks like being the only dry day of the week, with wet weather forecast into the weekend, so it could be a slippery sliothar come throw-in next Sunday.     .
