Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 12/10/10

Friday, December 10, 2010

Officially winter is still a couple weeks away but temperatures have many 
believing it has already arrived. Many farmers now feeding and chopping 
ice due to the freezing temperatures. With the rising price of corn and 
the lack of high quality hay a long winter could prove to be quite 
expensive.  Every day seems as if more farmers all looking at 
alternatives such as ethanol by products but even those prices have seen 
an increase in cost. With the lack of high quality hay available nearly 
all farmers will have to add some form of energy to feeding rations, 
especially once snow and sub zero temps arrive. As typical, hay movement 
has picked up slightly as feeding season gets underway and progresses. 
State wide hay supply is moderate, currently demand is light, and hay 
prices are steady. Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory
