No storage room for Aussie sorghum crop
Spring rains are expected to have helped farmers in the Australian states
NSW and Queensland to produce their best sorghum crop in years. The forecast for
the total crop is more than 2 million tonnes and should fetch $250 to $260 per
The biggest problem faced by growers is where to store
the crop after harvest but Darling Downs farmer Clive Brownlie has solved this
by buying twelve 250 tonne, 24 metre long silo bags to store the portion of his
crop that has not been pre-sold.
The good crop result should help to
ease the feed shortage and reduce price pressure on chicken, eggs, pork and
dairy products.To receive more animal feed news, subscribe
