Missouri Weekly Hay Summary - Week ending 03/19/2010

Friday, March 19, 2010

With the official arrival of spring many farmers hoping that muddy conditions 
will somehow get better so they can put fertilizer buggies to use. In much of 
the north hay has become difficult to find locally. Farmers have been scrambling 
to find enough hay to finish out the feeding season. 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
