There was not much positive news to report from this week’s sale series. Volumes for sale were small, the supply variable and generally quite average in terms of quality. Traders continue to report of limited opportunity to sell. This is a reflection of this time of the year as well. It’s not the perfect time for the supply chain to be making crucial decisions for the next seasons demand. Summer holidays are pending in Europe as mills are gearing up to shut down in August. We’re unlikely to see any major changes in the last few weeks of sales prior to our recess.

It’s still too early to see any of the higher quality superfine clips from the new season. Vegetable matter would be considered higher than normal, and we note some clips from NSW with some colour following good rain. While western districts of Victoria and South Australia have recorded a dryer than average start to winter.
