Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 5/13/11

Thursday, May 12, 2011

   Sunshine and unseasonably warm temperatures this week improved soil 
conditions as well as many attitudes this week. Farmers in north Missouri 
were able to get back at it, with many wrapping up the corn planting and 
shifting their attention to beans. In southern Missouri, the grass situation 
is much improved after recent rains, but those in the Bootheel are still 
dealing with the after affects of recent flooding. A few reports of hay 
cutting are starting to trickle in, with most hoping that the weather holds 
long enough to make some progress. Hay prices are steady. Supply moderate and demand of hay light. Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory available for both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory, visit
