CloudBreak is South Australia’s premier grain brokerage and advisory service. The team at CloudBreak is solution focused and always strives to get the best result for our clients through multiple grain marketing strategies.
Our holistic grain marketing approach aims to assist growers with marketing grain over multiple seasons, which will help them maximise their bottom line. In today’s deregulated environment price risk management can be complicated. With an array of services on offer, CloudBreak recognises the need for a professional advisory service to help growers navigate these markets.
CloudBreak’s price discovery is not to simply monitor track markets but is additionally suited to those looking to maximise value from their on-farm storage. By selling grain to an end-user or delivered packer, growers can often receive a significant premium. We endeavour to have the largest delivered demand pool of any Grain Marketing specialist in SA and Vic. We maintain active working relationships with feedlots, feed mills, grain packers and dairies across South Australia and Victoria which offers our clients greater marketing power and increased opportunity.
