ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication provides estimates of stocks of wheat, barley, and selected other grains and pulses held by bulk grain handlers. These estimates are compiled from the Grain Handlers Stocks Survey (GHSS) conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
In addition to the monthly wheat estimates, quarterly estimates for barley and selected other grains and pulses are available in a separate data cube from the 'Downloads' tab of this publication.
For more detailed information on wheat use and stocks, see Wheat Use and Stocks, Australia (cat. no. 7307.0).

CHANGES IN FORTHCOMING ISSUES
Currently, estimates of stocks of barley and selected other grains and pulses are reported on a quarterly basis in data cubes attached to this publication. Following a review of the collections and changing data needs among key clients, collection of these data will cease. Stocks of barley and selected other grains and pulses will not be published for the December 2010 quarter. Updated estimates of stocks of barley and selected other grains and pulses for the March 2011 quarter will appear in the March 2011 issue of this publication, after which no further updates will be published. The publication of monthly data on stocks of wheat held by bulk grain handlers will continue unchanged.
The release of the January 2011 issue of this publication, previously advertised for 24 February 2011, will now occur on 28 February 2011.
At the end of October 2010, Australia's bulk storage of wheat grain was estimated at 3.4 million tonnes, which was 33% less than the amount stored at the same time in September 2010. Of the total wheat grain stored by bulk grain handlers, 89% (or 3.1 million tonnes) was milling grade, and 11% (or 0.4 million tonnes) was feed grade. Stocks of wheat grain stored by bulk grain handlers decreased in all states in October 2010, when compared to September 2010.
