Missouri Weekly Hay Summary - Week ending 07/02/10

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Farmers appreciated the cooler temperatures this week with a couple days even 
below average. Many in the south hoping to see a good Fourth of July rain as 
pasture conditions continue to deteriorate. The north half of the state however 
remains at the complete opposite end of the spectrum but are finally starting 
to see some standing water leaving river bottom fields. Hay yields and quality 
have been reported just as variable as the weather with some fields producing 
great while others have been disappointing.  The supply of hay is 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
