Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 6/09/11

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Despite a slow start farmers have made great progress in the hay fields over 
the last week and half. Near perfect haying weather that has had little to no 
chance of rain forecasted and a good wind for drying has allow farmers to mow 
hay with the only worry being how much can they bale in a days time. Most 
fields of hay are yielding better than producers expected as heavy undergrowth 
has made up for lack of height. Reports also that hay quality seems to be 
better than what has been seen over the last few years but few official test 
results have returned yet. Supply moderate and demand of hay light. Hay prices 
are steady to firm. Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory 
available for both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory,
