Dry in Australia?

This may not impact grain markets but it talks of the drought in cattle country in Australia.

If it moves into other areas then maybe wheat markets will notice.

Worth keeping an eye on.


"It's real bad at the moment - as bad as it's been. There's just no grass and we're running out of water fast."

But Mr Hughes may have to move his 1400 cattle again as the silent, relentless drought creeps south.

With more than 60 per cent of the state officially drought declared, many farmers are desperate.

Mr Hughes casts his mind back to the 1980s to remember a time when things were this bad on his 28,000 hectare property.

"But we've got dams drying out now that never went dry in those years," he said.
