GRAINCORP Dalby general site manager Glenn Neale predicts grain takings will be down on last year's intake in the district.
The silos located at the Black St depot have received about 16,000 tonnes so far, down on intake at the same point last year.
"We are probably around 60% through our intake here. Out west they are about 90% through," Mr Neale said.
Graincorp is currently outloading sorghum that will end up at local feedlots, the Dalby Biorefinery and Brisbane's port for export.
Wheat and barley are being stored at the site, both in silos and a temporary ground bunker.
Last year's total intake for the site was 35,000 tonnes.
"We had to open the Macalister and Malu storage sites last year, but this year we look like we might have around 25,000-30,000 tonnes," Mr Neale said.
AgForce grain president Wayne Newton said despite lower yields predicted for the summer harvest, farmers should not lose out too much, due to favourable conditions.
"The good thing about this year is that the prices are up for grain in general," Mr Newton said.
He said low protein in wheat crops had been a widespread problem and that farmers were now waiting on rain to help freshly planted sorghum and other crops get established.
"The wheat has probably yielded good average crops but a lot of farmers are having problems with low protein in crops," Mr Newton said.
"Sorghum planting has been happening on and off for the last month or so.
"(but) some farmers are looking for a bit of rain to get those new crops established."
