Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 1/21/11

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Another round of fury from old man winter brought hay movement to a 
standstill this week. The second large snow of the year and a long 
stretch of below freezing days earlier this year has lead to farmers 
in some areas feeding a large amount of hay this winter. In most areas 
hay supply seems to be holding out well although hay quality in most 
cases is only average and requires additional supplementation. A few 
reports of feeders searching and finding some high quality hay tucked in 
barns have trickled in this week, so there is at least some high quality 
hay left to be found and given the current price of corn even the best 
hay can be bought at a cheap price compared to what additional supplement 
would cost. Hay prices this week are mostly steady. Supply and demand of 
hay is moderate. 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/ or for current listings of hay
