Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 3/25/11

Thursday, March 24, 2011

A few farmers are starting to get fertilizer spread but many still having to 
pick which fields they can travel over. A spell of warm weather has alfalfa 
farmers keeping any eye out for pest and determining if spraying is needed or 
not as green up begins. As first cutting of hay is only about a month away in 
southern areas of the state farmers are now prepping hay equipment with high 
hope for this haying season. Hay feeding is dwindling quickly as many cattle 
have began to chase down sprigs of green grass it will still be a few weeks 
however before the far reaches of north Missouri produce enough to completely 
stop feeding. Hay prices are steady. Supply and demand of hay is moderate.
