Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 3/18/11

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Another dose of winter came to central MO this week as several inches of 
snow came and quickly went. Most all the rest of the state received several 
inches of currently unwanted rain. Farmers would like to be spreading 
fertilizer but crop fields, hay fields, and even the most rocky hill side 
pastures in the state are way too soft to get over with a spreader. Mud has 
made for difficulties with delivering load of hay. Producers especially in 
the southern part of the state are now count down the few days left before 
green grass and eager to call the feeding season of 2010 done. 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
