BIRD SEED PRICES
We have recently experienced sharp increases in the cost of several grains and seeds which are used in many of the standard bird mixes. After initially passing these increases on to our customers we have now made a decision to temporarily absorb a good part of the cost for our most popular mixes, namely BUDGIE, COCKATIEL and WILD BIRD. It is hoped that supply will improve in the coming months but if it does not we will not be able to absorb this loss of margin indefinitely.
20 Kg BUDGIE $29.50
20 Kg COCKTIEL $29.50
20 Kg WILD BIRD $19.50
WINTER IS COMING!!
All indications point to a very difficult winter.
Having recently surveyed several farms in the Lockyer Valley a common thread is developing:
1) The grass season has still not fully happened and there is now very little time to catch up, even if we get some decent rain
2) The lack of rain has meant that Lucerne ready to cut (flowering) is half the height and is yielding half the number of bales per hectare
3) Much of our excess hay output has been sent to drought stricken areas in the West
4) Due to the above, farmers have had little chance to build up stocks of shedded Lucerne and sheds which should be full at this time of year are only a quarter full.
The only relief on the horizon will be if we get some sustained rain in the coming weeks. Going forward, we will also work with our regular farmers to try for an early Barley crop and look into winter grasses such as Rye and Millet types.
