Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 11/05/10

Friday, November 5, 2010

Farmers had to pull out the heavy coats a couple mornings this past week as 
Mother Nature has hinted winter is on the way. Several farmers now taking 
inventory of their hay supply but as is typical for the state few will get 
real excited till the first flurries of the year begin to fall. Much of the 
state appears to be in good shape as far as hay supply is concerned as the 
feeding season approaches. The exception would be the southeast past of the 
state that is likely to be trucking significant amounts of hay in over the 
winter. State wide hay supply is moderate to heavy, currently demand is 
light, and hay prices are 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 (All prices f.o.b. and
