Communication to Farmer Customers RE COVID-19
By Grant McDougall
We wanted to let you know that we are continuing to manage all services for our customers during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is clear that agriculture is both a vital and an essential service in Australia, ensuring food security for both domestic and overseas communities. The Coronavirus has created a lot of uncertainty and we wanted to give you peace of mind that we are working diligently with our team in Australia and overseas to continue to support our customers. In particular;
- We are continuing to purchase grain and are committed to marketing the upcoming crop. Shortly we will commence offering our crop insurance product, as we have done in previous years.
- Grain contracts continue to be executed and our grower payment processes are functioning as per normal.
- Our GrainFlow facilities are continuing their work following on from harvest and our oilseed crush plants continue to operate; and
- We are continuing to run the grain and oilseed supply chain to ensure our demand customers are being serviced.
We are making some adjustments to our business in-line with government recommendations, namely stopping face to face customer visits, and instead working with our customers by phone or email. Please do not hesitate to get in contact with your territory manager, our grower services centre or myself if you have any questions or concerns. Cargill has been around for more than 150 years and in times like these we know how important it is to stick by our customers.

A week is a long time in grain markets. This couldn’t be any truer than the week we’ve just experienced. The uncertainty the world is facing today has created some market moves that are truly mind-boggling. To think that in the last couple of days of 2019 the Aussie dollar was trading at 70c to where it fell to last week at around 55c is certainly not unprecedented, though it is astounding. Many markets around the world have been impacted by this, and our grain market is no exception.Read More

Planting Season Underway
The Autumn break has been welcomed with open arms from east coast farmers with totals throughout Southern New South Wales ranging from two to six inches on top of a similar break a fortnight earlier where much larger and variable rainfall accumulated in the northern cropping and pastoral zones. Previously absent from these events, areas south of the Murrumbidgee River received upwards of two inches providing much needed relief to the region.Read More
