Report author John Spragg, a livestock feed industry consultant, says this illustrates the point brought out in surveys that there is poor understanding and communication between the grains and livestock industries, and that this is a cause of ongoing supply issues for feedgrains users... Mr Spragg says shipping costs to move grain in bulk ex-US are quoted at more than US$120 (A$138) a tonne before adding the expense of local handling, quarantine and transport... As to affordable grain for livestock, Mr Spragg suggests feedgrain buyers have to be prepared to pay enough to stop grain going into export pools; and should understand that in bumper years prices are closer to export parity, while during poor years they will be closer to import parity.

The paper firstly reviews how land values have increased over the last 20 years and the rate at which they have increased... At any one location, the difference between a good quality soil and a poor quality soil could, through its effect on yield, cut $WUE in half (from say $160/ha/100mm to $80/ha/100mm), and this difference translates to a reduction in land value of $1,280/ha ($16/ha for each unit loss in $WUE, table 1)... The combination of yield increase (600kg/ha over 20 years) and price increase ($76/t) has typically added $80/ha/100mm to $WUE. Given that each unit gain in $WUE adds $16/ha to land price (table 1), the $80 gain in $WUE contributes to a $1,280 gain ($80/ha/100mm by 16) in land price...
