First barly delivered at Port Pirie
Australia News, October 19, 2004
South Australia’s 2004/05 harvest began today with the first load of barley delivered to ABB Grain Ltd’s Port Pirie receival centre in the State’s Mid North. The honor of delivering the State’s first load went to Mr Ian Mudge of Telowie, who delivered just over 27 tonnes of feed barley to the silo this morning.

Mr Mudge is no stranger to being the ‘first cab off the rank’ at harvest time – the previous two years also saw him delivering the first of the state’s tonnes or the season, in 2002 of feed barley and 2003 of lupins.

With crops of wheat and lupins also to be harvested for the 2004/05 season, Mr Mudge said he usually started with barley but should be into the other commodities within the next fortnight, with wheat not that far away from being ready.

Mr Mudge said his crops were looking as though yields would be average to above average.

ABB Grain Corporate Relations manager Mr Ian Desborough said the company was expecting South Australian grain receivals to be in line with the five year average of 6.5 million tonnes or just below that level.

“We had thought earlier that we might go just above, but last week’s hot weather has taken a little of the gloss off the estimate, as crops in early maturing areas such as the upper North and Eyre Peninsula suffered in the heat,” he said.

“However it is still very early days yet and if the cool weather continues or we get another inch to half an inch of rain the yields could still go up in the later maturing areas south of Adelaide.”
