Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 2/11/11

Friday, February 11, 2011

For the vast majority of the state conditions remain just flat out miserable. 
Hay movement is very light as conditions are near impossible to get hay in and 
out of the country. FWA tractors have been the tool of choice for much feeding 
the last few weeks as snow and drifting has made feeding with pickup nearly, if 
not completely out of the question. Warmer weather and mud cannot arrive fast 
enough for most farmers. One farmer this week said “as much as I dislike feeding 
in the mud at least it would be something different to look at”. 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
