About Lachstock

Minimise your risk whilst maximising your return

Lachstock was founded in 2007 a result of the deregulation of the grain market. The grain market experienced changes to procurement, distribution, product release and an increase in grain price volatility. With more participants and products hitting the market the buying and selling of grain became a complex process.

Lachstock uses analytical research rather than a salesperson with a silver tongue. Taking the complexity and noise out of the market whilst tailoring our advice to your personal requirements. We analyse the prior data and set reasonable personal targets to increase profitability but also reduce risk.

Lachstock provides services to both corporate clients and farmers. Tailoring our solutions to your needs.

Our new season Australian wheat crop estimate has been further cut back to 20 MMT (8.4 WA, 4.3 SA, 3.5 VIC, 3.0 NSW, 0.7 QLD). This is largely as we had been expecting (subjectively) might happen – weather across most of central/northern NSW and southern QLD has given hardly any of the crop there a chance to make a stand.
