Farm supply stocks are at the top of the list, but they’re not the only ones.
The other categories are often more undervalued.
Farm production in Australia is often down in the first half of the year, and in the second, with the end of the summer, the value of agricultural products will often be down.
We’re also seeing an increasing number of commodity-based crops being shipped off the ground.
For some, it’s a good sign for the Australian economy that we’re beginning to get the farm price bubble, says Andrew Kiely, a commodity strategist with IHS Global Insight.
“But it will be a while before we see a significant rebound in commodity prices.”
The biggest problem for farmers is the high costs of growing and shipping food, and it will likely take some time for farmers to recover from that, he says.
“There’s a huge amount of uncertainty around what’s going to happen in the short to medium term.”
New Zealand has added to the list of countries looking to boost its exports to the United States, with the US Agriculture Department announcing it is sending a shipment of chad and camping supplies to Canada.
Agriculture Minister Gerry Brownlee said the shipment would be used to buy farm supplies.
“We want to continue to encourage exports to Canada as well as the United Kingdom and Australia,” he said.
But Mr Brownlee’s comments have raised questions about whether the US is helping to boost exports to Australia or China.
The US Commerce Department has said it is considering bringing in Canadian grain and hay from the US as part of its supply chain.
In March, the US announced it would boost exports of corn and soybeans, with Canada expected to follow suit.
Australia is also a major supplier of beef, pork and eggs to the world.
However, Mr Brownley said Australia would not be buying Canadian products from the United State.
There is also the question of the future of beef imports.
According to Agriculture Minister Peter Dunne, the beef sector is one of the largest export markets in the world, with beef exports accounting for more than half of all imports.
But he said in recent months there has been a shift in the supply chains of major beef producers, and that this had been caused by the introduction of import tariffs.
It is unclear whether the beef imports from the UK and US will be processed in the same way.
China has been expanding its own beef export market and has recently announced a deal to buy up to 10 per cent of US beef imports, which could help it boost its domestic production.
At the same time, there is a growing risk that Chinese imports of Canadian beef will fall off.

Medical supply company says it’s closing its Oregon operation and plans to move operations to Arizona
Medical supply chain management company Merkley Supply Group is ending operations in Oregon, citing low demand for its products and the state’s limited supply of the specialty products it sells.
Merkley’s Oregon operation, based in Bend, has been in business for more than 40 years.
It was originally established in the state by former Oregon Gov.
Frank Schulte in the 1970s and was one of the first supply companies to export medical supplies.
Merchants say demand for their products has grown in recent years, however, and they are now in the process of shutting down their Oregon operations.
The company said in a statement that it expects to be able to find a new location in Arizona, where its operations are located.
In a statement to Business Insider, Merkleys president, Jim Riddle, said that Merklyn Supply Group, based at Portland, Oregon, “has been the leader in the medical supply industry in Oregon for decades and we believe our success lies in our ability to provide our customers with quality, timely, and reliable products.”
Riddle said the company had invested $10 million to start its Oregon operations, and was focused on building up the state supply chain and providing its customers with the best products available.
He said that although Merkly had had some difficulties, its quality and value of supply was “thousands of times higher than competitors and it is a great fit for our business.”
Merklyn, a nonprofit company, has a network of about 4,000 suppliers across the U.S.
The company said that while Merkyns products were “the highest quality available in the market today, we are also able to offer a greater selection of specialty products and better quality services,” and that it planned to continue its Oregon footprint and expand the Oregon supply chain.
Riddle declined to say what the company plans to do with its remaining stores.
“We are focused on our business, and we will be investing in our Oregon and Arizona locations in the near future,” he said.
“Our focus is on expanding our footprint and we look forward to opening more Oregon stores in the future.”
Merkley’s announcement comes as Oregon’s governor has announced a plan to expand the state health care system to provide more options for patients and reduce costs for consumers.
State lawmakers have approved a $5 billion expansion of Medicaid, which covers low-income Oregonians, and the Oregon Health Authority is currently evaluating how it can expand the health care program.
