WAFarmers has established a 'Grains 2 Milk' registry in a bid to create market opportunities for two industries currently going through a period of "tumultuous change".

WAFarmers dairy section president, Peter Evans, said that in light of increased milk prices dairy producers were looking to acquire more grain for feed, locally.

The dairy industry is competing for a share of local grains in a world market, and dairy producers need to reduce their dependence on spot markets.

As a result, WAFarmers has established the 'Grains 2 Milk' registry to improve the linkages between grain and dairy farmers.

Both dairy and grain producers can register their interest in selling or purchasing grain for feed and WAFarmers will match the appropriate parties.

"WAFarmers aims to assist members and local farmers where ever we can, so the establishment of the registry is a welcomed move," Mr Evans said.

"We believe putting potential buyers and sellers in touch with each other is just one of the ways we can help."

"There are issues and risks for both parties involved in the exchange of grain, and if producers of either grains or milk are not happy with their current system for the acquisition or selling of grains, they may decide to initiate a business relationship elsewhere.

"WAFarmers can help facilitate that introduction, and assist in providing open communication and assist in building lasting relationships between grain producers and sellers.

"This will be a win-win outcome for all parties concerned."
