Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 12/17/10

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Below normal temperatures again this week, with a little snow and a little
freezing rain, along with gale force winds just letting everyone know that 
we are still officially in fall and winter doesn’t begin until next week.
All of this fall weather forcing cattlemen to supplemental feed forages
and most having to add some expensive energy to their rations. Most cattle 
producers still in good shape with plenty of big rounds still sitting in the
corner of the fields as we have only started the feeding phase of this year.
State wide hay supply is moderate, currently demand moderate to 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,
