Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 09/10/10

Thursday, September 9, 2010

The majority of farmers have now put hay equipment up for the year as 
many are now thinking of grain harvest. Farmers in the southern half of 
the state have welcomed rains in hope for a revitalization of pastures. 
Many have been forced to cull some of the herd in south central MO as 
that area seen the most prolonged dry spell and made the decision to cut 
the herd rather than truck in hay to feed. The supply of hay is moderate, 
demand light to 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, visit, http://mda.mo.gov/abd/haydirectory
