Missouri Weekly Hay Summary - Week ending 03/12/2010

Thursday, March 11, 2010

A week of average to slightly above temperatures reassured farmers hopes 
that someday winter will end. Many especially those in the lower 1/3 of the 
state even noticed a slight tint of green. The down side is warmer 
temperatures have resulted in deep mud and unpaved roads becoming quite 
difficult for travel in areas. Hay piles, especially in the northern 1/3 of 
the state which has had a very difficult winter, are very small if not 
non-existent. Many farmers are counting and recounting bales left in the hay 
pen and comparing the projected feeding days left trying to just survive 
till grass time. The supply of hay is light to moderate, demand moderate, 
and prices steady. Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory 
available for both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory,
