Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 10/07/11

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Missouri is sitting on the sidelines with regards to hay right now.  
We have neither the greatest supply nor the greatest demand in the
country and that is keeping things quite moderate.  Again this week
the overwhelming topic in hay is transportation; itís either not 
available or is cost prohibitive.  Pasture conditions fell again this
week and there is little to no rain in the forecast to renew optimism
about fall pasture regrowth.  Hay demand is light. Supply is moderate.
Prices are steady.Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory
available for both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory,
visit http://mda.mo.gov/abd/haydirectory/ or for current listings of hay
