This past week has seen plenty of action locally with the market showing some extremely bullish signs. Despite the US futures market remaining relatively subdued and the Aussie dollar rallying over 100 points, cash markets almost everywhere in Australia have surged higher. This is without doubt a direct result of most regions struggling to crack that elusive spring rain to finish remarkably good southern crops, as temps heat up and crops begin to show signs of moisture stress. Feels like we’ve been here before, right?

While the dry continues in Northern NSW and QLD, Central NSW is increasingly feeling the pinch following disappointingly light and patchy rainfall. However, prospects are firming in the southern part of the state with some areas only one good fall away from a firm production outlook.
