Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 09/24/10

Thursday, September 23, 2010

   Fall pastures have kicked in gear and begun to spring up in areas of 
the state that have had ample moisture. Pasture conditions statewide 
improved significantly over the past week in several areas. The south 
central and southeast however once again left out. Pasture conditions in 
those two areas is depressing to say the least, and with growing days 
ticking away it is starting to seem very unlikely pastures will recover 
this year, let alone allow for any stock piling of pastures before 
winter. Mean while many farmers to the north are once again looking at 
fields with standing water. Corn harvest has basically come to a 
standstill for most and several farmers once again trading the tires for 
tracks in hopes of making the combine float and not sink. 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,
