Missouri Weekly Hay Summary - Week ending 03/05/2010

Thursday, March 4, 2010

Farmers in the northern 1/3 of the state are still battling with tough 
winter conditions, snow cover and thick ice which has been around for what 
seems like forever. Many farmers in the southern part of the state are 
preparing fertilizer buggies as spreading will been in full swing very 
shortly. Hay piles have become much smaller to non-existent on some farms 
as the demands of a long winter have taken a lot of hay for cattle to 
survive. The supply of hay is moderate, demand moderate, and prices mostly 
steady. Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory available 
for both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory, visit,
